How it All Started

Zack and Linda found themselves in the challenging situation of caring for their ailing parents in their 80′s. Neither parent wanted to move to a nursing home, but Zack and Linda experienced difficulty in finding dependable elder care. The other siblings lived out of states, and the primary caregiver role landed with them. They helped when Linda’s father was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer, and wanted to continue living at home. After his passing, Linda’s mother experienced failing health, coupled with progressive dementia, and Linda’s mother eventually transferred to independent living and then to a nursing home where her health steadily declined until her passing at 90 years of age. Zack’s father was diagnosed with cancer in his late 80′s, and wanted to stay in the comfort of his home with his wife. Zack’s mother, as the primary caregiver, was under great stress and suffered a heart attack during this time caring for his Dad. We can relate to what you are experiencing and we are here to support your family.

This ongoing experience for 10 years, ultimately led Zack and Linda to create Approved Medical Alarm, provides personalized senior services for the elderly and those in need who wish to remain independent in their own homes for as long as possible. We also provide service to clients in rehab centers, and senior living facilities.

You can reach Zack or Linda at (972) 658-4001. We are always just a phone call away. We look forward to talking with you.
