I enjoy giving gifts to people whom I love. There is no woman that I love more than my mom so I want to share my very favorite gift that I gave to her last year. It’s a Bay Alarm Medical home alert system. I think that it’s the perfect Valentine’s gift for an aging parent. (It’s not jewelry or a beauty cream – although those are nice too.
I know that a “medical home alert system” doesn’t sound especially warm and fuzzy but it has brought both my mom and myself another layer of peace. Several years ago, I wrote about the fact that my mom had two heart attacks in the Beautiful Sky post. Fortunately, she has been in great health since then. I still get concerned about her though – especially since I live so far away.
I have siblings who live in Virginia near my mom but it’s not the same as being there myself. Last year, my oldest brother, my mom and myself were having a conversation. Since my siblings who live in Virginia help with local things (like cutting the grass, spending more physical time with my mom, etc.) I volunteered to get my mom a medical home alert system in case a problem arose when no one was around.
After initial pushback (parents!), my mom agreed. I put on my “researcher” hat and started researching the best medical home alert systems. After doing my due diligence, I chose to purchase the Bay Alarm Medical home alert system. Words can’t express how glad I am that I did so – especially during these pandemic times.
Bay Alarm Medical Home Alert System Highlights
- It was less than $100 for the setup – including the unit and an (optional) lockbox.
- I only pay $19.99/month to maintain the service.
- My mom (who is not especially tech-savvy) says that it’s easy to install and to use.
- Bay Alarm Medical’s customer service and communication are EXCELLENT. In August, they notified me that my mom’s unit had lost its signal. After calling my mom, I realized that there was a big storm in her area that had knocked out the power. Bay Alarm told me before she did!
I appreciate this service so much that I reached out to the company to form a partnership. If you or any of your loved ones are considering purchasing a medical home alert system, please consider using my Bay Alarm Medical link to do so. You can get FREE shipping and up to 20% off select plans until 2/1/21. (They also offer 30-Day risk-free trials year-round so that you can test out their service for yourself.)
Feel free to email me any questions that you might have. From both research and personal experience, I give Bay Alarm my highest recommendation.
In any event, I think that protecting your loved ones is the perfect gift. Buying a medical home alert system for Valentine’s Day (or any day) is a sweet way to show your aging family members and friends how much you care!
