I have found the coolest website. It is called Reviews.com. This website conducts unbiased research, spending as much as 200 hours researching a particular industry, in order to determine the best products. If you go to this site, you will see reviews on dog food, yoga mats, protein powder, etc.
Over the years, BBLB has written extensively about Baby Boomers being the “Tweener Generation”, caught between caring for aging parents and parenting adult children. I’ve also started a “Caregivers Living In Color” segment devoted to sharing information about resources for caregivers and their loved ones.
A product they recently investigated was medical alert systems. It’s hard to fathom we might need a medical alert system but statistics show one in three people over the age of 65 will experience a fall each year. According to the AARP, 90% of seniors want to be self-sufficient for as long as possible. Aging in place is a priority as is safety.
Reviews.com started with a list of almost 70 medical alert devices. They determined the best overall device is Bay Alarm Medical; the best technology is Mobilehelp; they even have a category for Honorable Mention- Medical Guardian. Check out the review I think you will find it very helpful.
