According to the CDC, one in four older adults experiences a fall annually, making it the leading cause of injuries and fatalities in this age group. A reliable medical alert system is a crucial asset, offering assurance and the knowledge that prompt assistance is readily accessible during moments of need. A simple button press empowers users to request help for medical concerns and emergencies swiftly.
In our commitment to supporting veterans, we have created a guide that provides a thorough overview of medical alert systems available through the Department of Veterans Affairs. It outlines the eligibility criteria for these systems and concurrently offers insights into alternative avenues to acquire a medical alert system if the VA's specified requirements are not met. Also included is a comprehensive list of Medicaid waiver programs that may cover the expenses associated with obtaining a medical alert system.
We recently updated our Mesothelioma and Veterans Guide. This free resource highlights:

• Veterans and Asbestos Exposure
• Filing a VA Claim
• Cancer Treatment for Veterans
• Types of Veterans Benefits
