3 Most Common Health and Safety Concerns 
 Alleviated with Smart Speakers
Smart speakers are helping elders and their families address, 
and even alleviate their shared concerns.

Fall Prevention...
How does having a Smarter Home help avoid falls?
According to the  National Council on Aging Falls Prevention Facts , one in four Americans aged 65+ falls each year. Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall; every 19 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall.

Some key ways to prevent falls are increasing physical mobility, improving home and environmental safety with home modifications including smart home technology, and reducing medication impact on falls.

Why we do what we do...
This is an shining example of what we look for in our technicians.  Clint's demeanor, professionalism, manners and positive attitude came through during this visit and this customer made a point of letting us know.  

"I want to let you know that Clint was on time, answered ALL of our questions and concerns.  He told us about the Center and we are interested in coming but would like to make sure that Clint can possibly be there when we visit and I'd also like for him to do our  installation."
