According to The Administration for Community Living, 14.3 millions seniors (about 28%) lived alone in 2018. AARP reported that 17% of seniors felt isolated, and 8.8% felt chronically lonely.
Loneliness can have serious health impacts on seniors, and the Health Resources & Services Administration reported that “poor social relationships were associated with a 29 percent increase in risk of coronary heart disease and a 32 percent rise in the risk of stroke.”
During times like this COVID-19 pandemic, which is impacting seniors more than other demographics, seniors may feel even more vulnerable and isolated.
Medical alerts like Belle can help seniors maintain their connection and reduce fear by:
- Offering access to friendly, compassionate operators 24/7
- Providing help at the press of a button should a senior feel ill or need assistance
- Giving confidence and security to go out for a walk, take a drive or run errands
