Every year, I go down to Florida to visit my dad. It’s one of the highlights of the year for me. He retired about five years ago and has a nice little condo where he stays. He enjoys the weather there and loves to go fishing when he can. The bad part is that he lives all alone and there is no one there to help if he gets in trouble. Dad has a few medical issues and has been known to fall out from time to time.
He has a condition that causes him to pass out occasionally. For the most part he is ok, but you never know what could happen. The last time I was there, I decided to get him set up with a system called Life Alert. It’s a system that makes sure he can receive help when he needs it. It has a feature called the inactivity detector that notices when he hasn’t moved and alerts the authorities.
Life Alert has other great features as well. There is a smoke detector and a pushbutton system that he can use if he feels that he needs too. I feel a lot better knowing that he is not alone even when he is. This is a great use of technology and I have no problem taking advantage Life Alert to ensure my dad is safe. Now we can go fishing and really enjoy it!
