As much as you love your grandparents you can’t always be there to protect them. According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, falling is the leading cause of fatal injuries among older adults. You can’t prevent this from happening, but you can get them an Aubry Lane Amulet. The Amulet can assist in how your elderly loved ones get help. The sleek design allows them to put it in a pocket or attach to key ring. That way when they’ve fallen they can reach help with one press of a button.
Recently, my own grandmother fell while she was tending to her tomatoes in the yard. She was unable to call for help because the phone was inside. While this wasn’t a fatal injury it still hurt her and she was left laying for at least an hour before she could stand again.
Moments like these are what make the use of the Aubry Lane Amulet, out side of the purse, so vital. The Amulet could have called me and four other members of my family to help. The feature on the Amulet that lets you talk directly into it would have allowed my grandma to tell us what happened and if she needed us or professional medical care.
This potentially life-saving technology is what could change your grandparents’ day-to-day experiences. By giving the Amulet as a gift you are giving them peace of mind by knowing if anything happens they can get help. Likewise, you can feel more comfortable going about your day without worrying.
