For starters, seniors are understandable loathe to forsake their independence for a nursing home—it’s a last resort any of us, young or old, hope to avoid.
Cincinnati, Ohio (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
For the Cincinnati area, Automated Security Alert (ASA) is pleased to announce that it is ready to begin servicing seniors and other individuals interested in medical alert systems, automated medication dispensers, and TeleHealth products. Zach Nigrelli, Director of Operations for the regionally based medical technology company, is enthusiastic about the launch of the products in the Cincinnati region. “We at ASA are extremely proud of both the quality of products and quality of customer service that we provide our customers,” he stated. “Seniors are no different from the rest of America. They’re feeling their wallets tightening in these difficult economic times, and our products afford them the premium services you might find at a high quality nursing home or elder community at a fraction of the cost.”
A member of a highly trained team of employees working to make Automated Security Alert a regional force in the area of elder care, Mr. Nigrelli cites ASA’s long-standing reputation as a quality medical technology company as a point of pride for ASA employees. The company, which is owned and operated by Zach’s father, Vincent Nigrelli, has been serving seniors in Pennsylvania, Washington D.C., Maryland, and West Virginia for over twenty-five years, in addition to shipping products directly to customers nation-wide.
Indeed, the products Automated Security Alert offers are well-established within the senior community, and range from affordable, utilitarian types of equipment for seniors on a budget to the most high-end technology products on the forefront of senior care.
An industry leader for 25 years, ASA has been providing seniors with both wearable and non-wearable medical alert and fall detection devices that can aid independent-living seniors in need of an immediate means of contacting help should a medical incident or fall occur. At present, ASA has served or is currently serving thousands of seniors across the nation, utilizing its regional base and tight-knit team of highly-trained employees to offer affordable prices and the highest quality of customer service to its customer base.
Though many people are familiar with medical alert devices, having seen commercials advertising the products and featuring depictions of helpless seniors who have fallen, the younger Nigrelli stresses that the campy nature of these advertisements—which he emphasizes are not ASA advertisements nor representative of the professionalism ASA brings to their services---should not deter seniors from looking into bringing a medical alert device into their home. “Both our business, and sales of ASA products, are growing for reasons beyond rising numbers of elderly seniors here in the U.S.” Mr. Nigrelli says. “For starters, seniors are understandable loathe to forsake their independence for a nursing home—it’s a last resort any of us, young or old, hope to avoid. Secondly, for seniors who live alone, one of the greatest threats to their independence is the risk of a fall or medical incident, and, subsequently, the inability of that senior to get help following the incident.”
This reality leaves many seniors with a catch-22 of sorts: while it is certainly more desirable and much less costly for a senior to continue living at home, rather than move to a nursing home (which, as a February Pittsburgh Tribune-Review article noted, costs on average between seven and eight thousand dollars per month), seniors who live alone are more at risk of having no one to help in the event of a medical emergency. “This is where ASA’s products come in,” Mr. Nigrelli says. “By merely pushing a button on one of our wearable medical alert devices, a senior can notify our emergency response team if there is an issue, and precipitate a rapid response to an emergency they may be having, even if they become incapacitated after the fact.”
As a preventative measure, using an ASA medical alert device offers are a substantially more affordable alternative to moving to community care or paying for an at-home nurse. Furthermore, the monitoring services provided by ASA are available around-the-clock, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. “We don’t take a moment off,” Mr. Nigrelli says. “A medical incident can occur at any times, and when it does, we will be there for you. That’s our guarantee, it’s what we live by here at ASA.” Indeed, if you or a loved one are interested in such care, the folks at Automated Security Alert are ready to help. Along with product installation,
ASA offers in-home training for users of their products to ensure that customers will be able to effectively deploy alerts with needed. In addition, ASA provides potential customers with a variety of contract options, offering its products and services in both one-month, trial form as well as long-term plans.
Automated Security Alert, Inc., has provided freedom and security since 1988 to over 60,000 consumers through the use of technology and services that enable seniors, physically-challenged persons and recovering patients to maintain an independent lifestyle in their homes. ASA’s creative, dependable solutions include medical alert systems(personal emergency response systems); fall detection systems; telehealth and medication management systems, including electronic pill dispensers and monitored medication dispensers.
