Medical Alert Necklace
When a loved one falls or has an emergency and you can’t be there for them, it can be a very painful experience. With a medical alert necklace, it’s possible for someone to be there for your loved ones when they are alone, so that if there are emergencies that require help, they aren’t left alone. Whenever they need help, all they need to do is press a button, and there will be someone there to connect with them right away. At the SafetyChoice® Monitoring Station, there’s always someone ready to take their calls.
Our representatives are trained and will talk with your loved ones to assess what’s wrong. They will also contact someone who can help; this can be a neighbor, emergency responder, or a family member. After making the connection, they will stay on the line with your loved one until the time someone arrives to help.
How They Work
Our medical alert necklaces are incredibly easy to use and wear. They are light enough to wear, even while sleeping, and this is due in large part to the fact that they are essentially a battery and a large button. Every SafetyChoice® alert device has the ability to connect with a PERS or Personal Emergency Response System.
The PERS is a small box that can sit on a table, and it connects to our Monitoring Station via a phone line. Most of the necklaces we provide have a range of 200 feet from the PERS, which gives loved ones free reign of their home. There are increased-range models should your loved one live in a larger home, or spend a great deal of time outside.
By simply pressing the button on the pendant, a loud speakerphone activates on the PERS. This allows your family member to hear the representative whether they are near the table station or not.
Build the Monitoring Solution Your Loved One Needs
Some of our PERS devices also have the ability to connect to other monitoring stations such as fire alarms. Finding the right PERS system for your loved one is an important decision, and there are a wide variety of simple and multi-device platforms available.
Most of the stations come with an alert necklace, but there is the option for a Medical Alert bracelet (link to Bracelets page) instead, should you prefer that. The units available to vary, but there are a few of the most popular models:
Medical Alert Necklace
This affordable system is the ideal choice for anyone looking for just a medical alert necklace, as this is the base model, complete with a battery backup should the house lose power.
Connect up to sixteen additional alert devices to this PERS, including door and window systems. This also allows for recorded personal messages to give your loved one the comfort of a familiar voice.
This system allows for up to twenty-four additional alert devices, specifically designed to help care for those with Alzheimer’s Disease or other dementias. It’s also our smallest model, and comes with a waterproof medical alert necklace.
Home and Yard PERS
This system has a transmitting range of up to 500 feet, so it allows for a greater range of motion. In larger homes, or for active seniors, this is a great option.
This system features an adaptive, multi-sensor technology that can detect falls, which gives your loved one the freedom they need while still having the security and safety they deserve.
If your home doesn’t have a landline, this table station can connect using a cellular network; a great choice for up to date homes.
