Medical Alert Update: New Tool Shows How to Pick a Medical Alert in 3 Easy Steps
Medical alert expert Joe Thoron publishes a new tool to help average consumers make better decisions when they buy a medical alert system.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) June 25, 2012
ElderlyMedicalAlertSystems.com announces that medical alert expert Joe Thoron has published a brief introduction to the essential areas people should think about before buying an alert system.
The list, formatted as a single-page flyer, is designed to be posted at senior centers, churches, doctors´ offices, and social service agencies — anywhere it can be seen by people who care about an elderly relative.
“A lot of people buy the wrong kind of system,” says Thoron, “because they don’t know the right questions to ask. They don’t know how to evaluate their real needs. This leaves them easy prey to the company with the biggest advertising budget — or the one with the pushiest salespeople.”
Thoron´s website breaks down the different kinds of medical alerts in plain language and describes the kinds of situations in which they perform well. But Thoron acknowledges that the site is still too detailed for many people. Many people need a much simpler solution.
Thoron´s new guide identifies the three main areas a savvy consumer needs to consider before buying a medical alert. “It’s a really short piece,” Thoron says, “but if you read it you’ll be better informed than almost everyone else who sets out to buy a medical alert.”
Speaking to his decision to make the information easy to post on bulletin boards, Thoron says, “Too many people start looking for medical alerts only after there’s already been an accident. Then they’re rushed and vulnerable. My hope is that if this information reaches people before an emergency happens, more people will be protected.”
