I also agree that today’s technology translated into products or services greatly helps seniors. For example, among useful devices like the one that turns off a stove that's been left unattended, seniors can also benefit from a free service like Smart911. It is available to citizens in select areas across the country and enables them to create a Smart Safety Profile, in which they include emergency contacts – like their children or a caregiver - special health conditions, or medications and even pictures of themselves. This crucial information is immediately available to 9-1-1 dispatchers when an emergency call is made and valuable minutes and seconds can be saved while sending the appropriate help faster.
The Smart911 service is 100% private & secure and is being implemented by local 9-1-1 centers across the U.S. You can view a video on the service at www.smart911.com/movie for more info.
Anyway, I hope it helps you and you can spread the word about it!
