Seniors over 65 represent 17% of Canadians and our Seniors requiring continuing care will rise by 71% by 2026. Our aging population have longer lifespans, and with strained social services, the children of these seniors are often their primary caregivers. This eventually takes a toll on caregivers.
Reports have shown that many of these caregivers are stressed to the point of breakdown. The cost allocated to looking after their parents is estimated to be $27 billion in out of pocket expenses, lost income and vacation time. Many of these caregivers experience worry and guilt for the time they are not able to be there and find it extremely difficult to balance life, work and care giving.
With the advances in Medical Alerts, children of our Seniors can rest assured that they can utilize GPS tracking to know where their parents are, that falls can be detected remotely and that they can rely on the 24/7 Help Response available to their parents should they need it.
A Medical Alert Device can monitor your loved one when you can’t be there.
