The elderly woman had caregives 24/7, since she experienced a nasty fall more than three years ago, which resulted in a broken hip and months of recovery time. She had steadily improved very well, and at age 83, with a posture resembling a question mark, she was convinced that she was perfectly fine to stay by herself at night.
Her family and caregivers were concerned, but as she so adamantly stated, she did nothing but watch television and retire to bed after the news, so there was no need to pay someone to be there to sleep all night.
Reluctantly, her family decided to let her stay alone one night. She was probably right. Nothing had happened in several years about which to be alarmed. Everything would be ok…right?
If only they had made preparations for Direct Link® monitoring services in Hudson before they agreed to her request to stay alone.
The senior woman fell on her way to the bathroom that night, rendering her helpless on the floor until the caregiver arrived hours later for her morning shift. Due to the elder woman’s poor posture, weakness, and intense pain she suffered from the fall, she was unable to drag herself across the living room to a phone to call for help. If she had a monitor or had been wearing a medical alert device, help could have been summoned immediately.
