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.


About This Location

If you have a waiver or the Alternative Care Program covered costs include: purchase of equipment, installation, and monthly service charge.

If you have disability waiver funding, the service plan (based on an assessment of your needs) determines which services are funded through your waiver.

24-hour emergency response equipment like the Personal Emergency Response Equipment can be paid for through the Elderly Waiver and Alternative Care Program with the service called Specialized Supplies and Equipment.

Learn more about this service when paid for under the waivers, the Alternative Care Program, and Essential Community Supports in the Community-Based Services Manual.
