Anyone can fall. And the risk of falling increases as we get older. The good news is that falls can be prevented. All you need to do is make a few adjustments to your home and lifestyle. Eating well and exercising regularly are always good. Plus, there are fall prevention devices, such as a fall alarm from Protection CSL, that can facilitate your daily life, keep you safe, and ensure your continued independence at your home in Longueuil, Quebec.
Longueuil sits on the south shore of the Saint Lawrence River, directly across from Quebec’s largest city, Montreal. As the administrative center for the Montérégie region, Longueuil is also the second-largest suburb in the Greater Montreal Area with a population of 239,700 as of the 2016 census.
Founded as a seigneurie in 1657 by Charles Le Moyne, today Longueuil is a commercial, industrial, and residential city with three boroughs – Le Vieux-Longueuil, Saint-Hubert, and Greenfield Park – where most residences are single-family homes constructed during the postwar economic boom following World War II. With its network of libraries, outdoor parks, and indoor pools, Longueuil offers seniors plenty of opportunities for staying active in mind and body, an important element in fall prevention. With Protection CSL’s fall alarm, there is no reason not to enjoy those activities.
Longueuil is an affordable place to live, well served by essential retail outlets like grocery stores and pharmacies. The city’s economy is strong, with the aerospace sector providing close to 6,000 jobs. Pratt & Whitney Canada, Héroux-Devtek, and the Canadian Space Agency all have headquarters here.
As a family business, Protection CSL understands the need to know your loved ones are living in safety. And the facts highlighted on the Public Health Agency of Canada’s website (You Can Prevent Falls!) are worrisome:
Falls are the leading cause of injury among older Canadians.
20-30% of seniors experience one or more falls each year.
Falls are the cause of 85% of injury-related hospitalizations among seniors.
Falls are the cause of 95% of all hip fractures.
50% of all falls causing hospitalization happen at home.
But these facts shouldn’t stop you and your loved ones from enjoying life in Longueuil! As a fall prevention measure, Protection CSL medical alarm systems include a panic button, a fall alarm, and even a GPS according to your needs.
Fear of falling can lead many seniors to stop doing the activities they enjoy. However, activities that help build strength and balance also build confidence and self-esteem. Our fall alarm will give you the peace of mind you need to keep living life to the fullest.
With just one press of a button, the Protection CSL medical alert system instantly connects to the closest 24-hour emergency response center, where a qualified operator assesses your situation and quickly dispatches assistance by informing emergency services or someone on your list of contacts, as required.
