Personal safety with peace of mind should be priority for all. This is especially true for senior citizens and women who are at greater risk for assault. Self defense and home protection products provide the protection you deserve and need for both you and your assets.
Senior citizens are perceived as defenseless victims for lowlife criminals. And for many that is the case. That is one reason why crimes against the elderly are expanding so quickly. Assaults, street robbery and even home burglary where seniors are the targets are a new trend in crime.
Seniors are the fastest-growing segment of our population with baby boomers nearing retirement age in record numbers. That is why so many companies are focusing on elderly personal protection, personal safety and self-defense products for women.
Many senior citizens use walking sticks, a.k.a. canes, as a means to aid in getting around. A cane can be an effective self-defense product for women as well as senior citizens to provide a certain level of peace of mind as well as personal safety and elderly protection. For example, a cane can be used as a striking device as well as a jabbing device. A well-placed blow with a cane to the throat of an assailant can disable him quickly.
Just because you have become a senior citizen does not mean that you should not be concerned about your own personal protection and personal safety. As a matter of fact if you are an active senior, you should be very concerned and take steps to learn how to defend yourself against these crimes against seniors.
