Since 1953, 65 natural disasters have been declared in the state of Florida. The worst of these was Hurricane Andrew in 1992, followed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. According to NBC News, Florida is the fifth most disaster-prone state in the country.
Despite Florida’s intense weather conditions, there are many reasons why it attracts so many homeowners. Its subtropical climate makes it high in demand for retirement and/or vacation homes. In 2015, the median home value was $198,886, with rentals leaning towards a median price of $1,195. Also notable in Florida is the prevalence of family-oriented attractions, including Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Studios, Sea World and more.
Another attractive aspect of living in Florida include its lower tax rates, which lie below the national average. For example, its property tax rate is 1.1%, and there is no income tax. Additionally, the sales tax is 6%, which is lower than most other large states such as California and Illinois
With high crime rates, especially property crimes, residents of Florida should be vigilant and learn more about ADT-monitored Systems. Our ADT-monitored System includes various services. Some of these services feature:
People today live longer than ever. This is a remarkable achievement of modern medicine and public health, but it also introduces new challenges.
Many seniors choose to live independently in their own homes for as long as possible. They may choose to do so for financial reasons. Or because their independence makes them happy—they like their homes. They enjoy their lives.
Your loved ones deserve to enjoy the choice, dignity, and independence that come from living in their own homes for as long as it is safe for them to do so.
But a longer life doesn’t exclude someone from the hearing, mobility, and health issues that can come with advanced age. According to a 2014 report from the U.S. Census Bureau, “Over 38 percent of those aged 65 and over had one or more disabilities in 2010, with the most common difficulties being walking, climbing stairs, and doing errands alone.”
So, how can you help make sure Mom and Dad (or Grandma and Grandpa) are safe and comfortable at home? A home security system may be able to help.
Today’s home security systems have a lot more to offer than “just” protection from intruders. From smart locks and video doorbells to personal panic buttons and indoor video cameras—a home security system can help protect your loved ones in a variety of different ways. Read more below to learn about home security for seniors.
Home security systems are smarter than ever, and they are designed to make your life easier.
Your system can tell you when a window or door is open. Or if there is moisture in the basement—so Mom or Dad won’t have to go down the basement stairs to check for flooding. It can also allow you to turn lights and small appliances on and off remotely.
You can also protect the front door with a video doorbell and door and motion sensors. These are great tools to safely monitor who comes in and who goes out. You’ll know if a caregiver has arrived, or if your loved one is away from home.
You can even integrate your security system with home automation for voice commands. Imagine turning on a light or small appliance without having to move a finger.
A home security system can be a real lifesaver for the elderly.
A monitored home security system means that help is on the way when you (and your loved ones) need it.
With a monitored home security system, you won’t have to worry about break-ins or intruders. When the alarm is activated, a monitoring center will contact you and send help.
It’s no secret that smoke and carbon monoxide detectors help save lives. Loud alarm sirens and lights are particularly helpful to the elderly and those who may be visually or hearing impaired—and they are also great alerts for neighbors and first-responders who may come to help.
But what happens if your loved one has a personal emergency in the home, maybe a fall, and he or she can’t reach a phone or control panel? A personal panic button remote can alert a professional monitoring representative (who will dispatch help) with just the push of a button.
And what about the very worst-case scenario and ultimate worry? What if your loved one is home alone and unable to call for help? You can’t always be at home 24/7 with Mom and Dad, but indoor video cameras can allow you to check what is happening 24/7, day or night. No more worrying.
A home security system can be an easy and affordable solution for caregivers, families, and their (independent) elderly family members.
So, is a home security system right for your (independent) elderly loved ones?
