Online Program: Preparing for a Potential Fall

A free Compass & Clock seminar will address readiness for falls and technology solutions that can assist you in such an emergency. It will be held on Thursday, October 21, at 11:30 a.m.

No one wants to believe they’ll ever need help in the event of a nasty fall—but we have all heard accounts of people who wished they had prepared better for that possibility.

Cheri McEssay of UnaliWear will introduce a medical-alert watch that is voice-controlled and can communicate with a live emergency operator in seconds. She will show online seminar participants how the device keeps the wearer constantly connected, without the need to remove it for charging.

The monthly “Compass Points” seminars are presented live to give you a chance to ask the experts. For more information and registration, visit
