Protect Loved Ones with a Personal Emergency Response System

Enhance Security with a Senior Safety Alarm

When it comes to the safety and well-being of your loved ones, a personal emergency response system (PERS) is an essential tool. Designed to provide immediate assistance in an emergency a PERS ensures that help is always just a click away. 

As our loved ones age, their risk of falling or experiencing a medical emergency increases. A senior safety alarm is specifically designed to address these concerns. They are easy to use and provide instant access to help. Seniors can call for help simply by pressing a button. They can get assistance quickly from caregivers or emergency services.

A PERS promotes independence while ensuring that help is readily available. This balance of autonomy and security is essential for allowing your loved ones to maintain a high quality of life in their later years. It’s also a wonderful way to give family members a sense of comfort knowing their loved ones are protected.

Gain Peace of Mind with our Comprehensive Medical Alert System

How it Works

A medical alarm system is more than just a device; it’s a lifeline. These systems typically include a wearable device, such as a pendant or wristband, equipped with an emergency call button. By simply pressing the help button, the user is connected to a 24/7 monitoring center staffed with trained professionals. This immediate response can be crucial in situations where every second counts.

Certain Elders’ Helpers medical alert systems come with advanced features such as GPS medical alert capabilities. This allows caregivers and emergency responders to locate the user quickly in case of an emergency. This feature is great for people who tend to wander or get lost, giving them extra security and peace of mind.

personal emergency response system (PERS)

The emergency call button is the core of any personal emergency response system. This simple yet effective device empowers users to call for help with minimal effort. In the event of a fall, medical emergency or other crisis, pressing the emergency call button immediately alerts the monitoring center, which can then dispatch emergency services or notify designated contacts.

Fall detection devices take personal safety a step further by automatically detecting falls and alerting the monitoring center without the user needing to press the button. Our Mobile and Wearable PERS devices use sophisticated sensors to detect sudden movements and impacts, distinguishing between a fall and everyday activities. If a fall is detected, the device sends an alert to the monitoring center, ensuring that help is on the way even if the user is unable to call for assistance themselves.

Our devices are waterproof and durable to ensure they can be worn at all times. Even in the shower or bath where slips and falls are common. This constant accessibility is crucial for providing comprehensive protection.
