Grandma Is Staying Active in the OC with Bay Alarm Medical

This is a sponsored post.last June, i wrote about how we got my grandma a Bay Alarm Medical alert device. she lives alone and still is very independent, so we wanted to make sure that in the case of an emergency, she’d have the help she needed. it’s been 8 months since she’s been set up with the Bay Alarm Medical alert device, and so far, she loves it. it’s been such a great experience, and i wanted to share with you how things have been going. plus, i wanted to share about the new addition that we got for her device.

we spend a lot of time with grandma out and about in Orange County. it’s so beautiful here, i would hate for her to be cooped up at home. she needs to enjoy the sunshine just like we do. just a few weeks ago, me and the boys…and baby Dani too, took her out for our weekly date night. it was a build-your-own pizza kind of day, so we headed over to one of our favorite local pizza joints. we always LOVE the time we get with grandma. and it’s very special to have my boys spend time with her…i hope they always remember these special dates.

grandma has been living on her own for the past 5 years since my grandpa passed away, and we always worry about her safety. she has had a falls…luckily not too terrible. but it’s scary thinking about if no one was there to help. this is why it has been a great piece of mind having her use a Bay Alarm Medical alert device. what would she do if she had an emergency and there was no one there to help?

just recently, she told me a story about one of her cousins. her cousin, who lived alone, fell in the hallway of her home. she was very overweight and was unable to pick herself back up again. it was days later until someone finally found her. they came to pick her up for church but she never answered. unfortunately, she had already passed away when no one came to her aid. the doctor said that she had been laying there for at least two days before she died.

this is a horrible story. and to think that if she would have had a medical alert device, she maybe still would have been alive today. this is one of the reasons why my grandma agreed that setting up Bay Alarm Medical was the best idea. hopefully she’ll never have to use it, but it gives her the piece-of-mind to know that if she needs help, it’s just a click of a button.

we’ve added GPS to grandma’s Bay Alarm Medical alert device.

after using the medical alert for a few months, my grandma expressed interest in being able to us the alert system when she was outside her home doing errands and going places. her regular device is not meant to be worn outside the home…although she likes to wear her bracelet at all times. so we recently added the outdoor GPS feature to grandma’s Bay Alarm Medical alert device. it was very simple to upgrade to The Bundle Package, which is a great (cost-effective!) option for individuals looking for at-home and cell coverage. it includes the GPS medical alert device that is made for outdoor use – if she is out and about and has an emergency, she can just push a button for help. we have loved having the in-home device so much, that this was the logical next step.

basically, its a handheld device that you can wear or put in your pocket or bag. it’s great to have at night, especially when you are driving. if there’s an accident or you get lost and are in danger, you can press the button and Bay Alarm Medical’s trained 24/7 emergency operators will be there to contact family, friends, neighbors and if necessary, local 911 emergency services. you can choose your emergency call list. in my grandma’s case, her son and daughter will be called.

now we have piece-of-mind that when grandma is out of her house, she can call for help immediately if she needs it.

at lunch, i asked grandma how she has liked having the Bay Alarm Medical alert device.  she told me that she will continue with the service for the rest of her life. she loves it that much! having a Bay Alarm Medical device in her home has not only given her family piece-of-mind, but her as well. it has calmed her nerves. she also mentioned that by wearing it all the time, it has reminded her to be more careful in her footing – not to take corners too fast and to pay attention more to her balance. this has helped prevent some falls she probably would have had.

i would never forgive myself if something happened to my grandma and she didn’t have the access to call medical personnel. she really likes her Bay Alarm Medical alert device, which will help her stay independent for as long as possible. help is just a click away. for anyone who has aging family members or friends, i highly recommend Bay Alarm Medical…piece-of-mind is a priceless thing. don’t forget to read about our journey to getting Bay Alarm Medical here.

we love our grandma…she deserves the best!
