Personal Emergency Response Systems
Keeping a watchful eye on your loved ones when you can’t be there.
Every senior yearns to preserve his or her independence, but we understand how difficult that can be as aging and disease set in over time. With the use of a simple medical alert system, seniors can realize this goal with safety. Comfort Keepers® recommends Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) from SafetyChoice®. These devices are a convenient, simple, and efficient way to call for help in an emergency.
These life-saving items are available as necklaces or bracelets. This allows them to remain unobtrusive when worn. They feature wireless communication, which allows interaction with a centralized console that connects to a phone line in the home. Once activated, the senior can have instant two-way communication with medical device emergency staff. Phone lines are open and available 24/7.
Activated by the push of a button, medical alerts provide a level of comfort not only for the senior but family and friends at a distance. Once activated, the SafetyChoice® Centralized Monitoring Station alerts all appropriate emergency channels. The response is instantaneous, meaning there's no delay in help arriving. This simple and convenient device can be a true life-saver.
There are several choices available for medical alert systems
Medical Alert Bracelets
Learn more about these potentially life-saving devices worn conveniently on the wrist. These are often preferred by men.
Medical Alert Necklace
These alert products provide the same safety as bracelets, but are worn on a cord around the neck. They are comfortable and convenient.
Medical Alert Consoles
These tabletop units are the brain of the medical alert system. When a button is pushed on a bracelet or necklace (or on the console itself), these units send a message for help.
Comfort Keepers® will assess your safety needs and recommend the right product. Comfort Keepers will visit the home, work with the family to determine the specific needs, and demonstrate how these care products help seniors stay safe while maintaining independence in the home.
