Dear Savvy Senior,
I’m interested in getting my mother, who lives alone, a medical alert device with a wearable SOS button that she can push in case she falls or needs help. What kinds of devices can you recommend and how much do they cost?
There’s a wide variety of medical alert systems on the market today that can help keep elderly seniors safe, while living in their own home. Here’s a breakdown of some different styles and prices to help you choose.
For the past several years, my brother has sent me the same birthday card. The sentiment begins, “One year older” (flip to the inside), “One year closer to looking more and more like Mom.” It’s not clear why he chooses this same card. Perhaps he forgets from year to year; after all, he is my ‘older’ brother. Or could it be that the message is so appropriate that it bears repeating and repeating and repeating?
