Help protect Dad with ADT Medical Alert

Father’s Day is coming up on June 19th, and there’s no better way to show Dad—or Granddad—how much you care than with an ADT Medical Alert System. It lets him quickly and easily call for emergency help with the tap of a button. Here’s how it works:

  1. Dad presses the button
    Personal help buttons can be worn around the neck and wrist, or mounted on the wall, and will send an emergency alert to ADT when pressed. Fall detection pendants can automatically* send alerts if a fall occurs.
  2. We respond
    ADT senior sensitivity-trained monitoring professionals will check in on Dad using 2-way talk to determine what kind of help he needs—if any.
  3. He gets help
    Our monitoring agents will alert his caregivers, loved ones and/or the appropriate emergency responders based on the circumstances and your family’s preferences.

As a loyal ADT customer, you can snag one for as low as $23.99 per month†, plus get FREE shipping and FREE activation. Don’t miss your chance to get the perfect Father’s Day gift. Shop online and use promo code BESTDEAL at checkout.

*Fall detection pendant does not detect 100% of falls.

†Requires a monthly agreement. The customer will be billed monthly, excluding applicable taxes upon receipt of the unit. Learn more at www.adt.com/health/best-deal. Offer valid until 12/31/2022.

Hot safety tips for a no-bummer summer

As the weather warms up and outdoor activities become more frequent on your agenda, be sure to keep safety top of mind for you and the fam. The sun’s UV rays are at their peak between the hours of 10AM and 4PM, and it’s best to avoid long periods in the sun and heat during this time if possible. But when you do plan on being out and about in the sun, these tips can help you enjoy those sweet summer vibes safely:

Drink liquids throughout the day. Your body can lose a lot of water through sweat, which can lead to exhaustion and dehydration.

Apply sunscreen 30 minutes before going out, and reapply it every two hours after that. This is critical for protecting your skin from overexposure to UV rays that can increase your risk of skin cancer.

Wear sunglasses whenever you’re out in the sun—no matter what season it is. Sun damage to your eyes can occur at any time of the year. We recommend lenses that block 99% to 100% of UVA and UVB light.

Take some time to cool down in the shade. Prolonged heat exposure can lead to cramps, heat exhaustion or even heat stroke. Frequent breaks in the shade—and lots of water—can help keep your body temperature down.

National Heat Awareness Day

Get out and enjoy the great outdoors

June is National Great Outdoors Month, but don’t let the word “great” fool you. The great outdoors isn’t limited to snow-topped mountains and lush forests. You can find it right outside your door—no matter where you live.

Whether you’re surrounded by nature, or live in a more populated area, celebrating this holiday is easy. Take a hike on your favorite trail, run around with the kiddos in your backyard or just kick back in your comfiest porch chair. No matter how big or small your adventure, don’t forget to stay hydrated, stay cool and avoid long-term exposure to the sun. (Have we mentioned that already?)
