Home Care Aides say that medical alert systems can be true lifesavers
Medical alert systems are a convenient and efficient way for seniors to call for help when an emergency occurs. For senior who live alone, this device can offer a sense of security as help is just a press of a button away. Just by knowing that they are not truly alone can increase their confidence as they perform daily activities. Family caregivers can benefit from these devices as well. You don’t have to worry about your loved one’s safety every time you leave the house anymore because, with the Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) from SafetyChoice, your loved one will receive help and assistance whenever they need it, even if a home health aide is not around.
Personal emergency response systems consist of a medical alert console and alert bracelet or necklace. There are several choices available for each.
Medical alert consoles are small and easy to use. PERS is connected to the SafetyChoice Centralized Monitoring Station through a phone line. They don’t need Internet access to work. Medical monitoring is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Once activated with a push of a button, PERS becomes a hands-free speakerphone. This means your loved one doesn’t have to be near the console or the phone in order to call for help. Monitoring station personnel will assess the situation and send help. They will stay in contact with your family member until help arrives.
Medical alert necklaces can be worn even during the night as they are very light. They only have a big button and battery. If your loved one is not comfortable with wearing the necklace, they can use bracelets.
In case of an emergency, your loved one only needs to push the button and will have instant two-way communication with our home health aides. When it comes to accidents like falls, a quick response is crucial, which is why medical alert systems can truly save your loved one’s life.
