Service Details

Description

Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) are electronic devices for older adults and people with disabilities to easily call for help in an emergency.


The person may also wear a portable "help" button to allow for mobility. The system is connected to the user's phone and programmed to alert a response center once the "help" button is activated. The response center is staffed by trained professionals.


Additional Information

Monitored medical alarm system and Personal Emergency Response System. The device comes with a main box and a transmitter that can be worn on a necklace, bracelet or belt clip.


When activated by the client it will call the 24/7/365 monitoring center and the operator will initiate a conversation using the built in speaker phone, determine what type of help is needed and then call the appropriate help based on the client's call list. There are also monitored smoke detectors and activity sensors for use with the system.
