Preparing for Health Emergencies

 

Emergency Response Systems

For home telephone-connected systems that allow users to push a button to access emergency services in times of crisis, see phone book yellow pages under "Medical Alarms."

 

Advance Health Care Directive An advance health care directive is a legal document in which a person specifies what actions should be taken for their health if they are no longer able to make decisions for themselves because of illness or incapacity. A trusted person should be appointed who will make certain these wishes are carried out. Every adult should have an advance directive which explains the type of health care wanted or not wanted at a time when decisions cannot be made by the individual. A sample of this form can be found at AARP website at:

http://www.aarp.org/content/dam/aarp/relationships/caregiving/2011_01/ad/California.pdf

 

Air Ambulance Memberships Protects you from being billed for costly emergency medical air transport by these providers above and beyond what your health insurance may pay. Membership with one carrier does not cover transport by the other, and in most cases you will not be able to choose which provider is dispatched to you, so membership with both is recommended. (Note: not the same as insurance; membership is not a guarantee that you will receive an air ambulance transport.)
