Keeping a watchful eye on your loved ones when you can’t be there.
As we grow older, one of the things we fear the most is losing our independence, but it gets harder and more difficult the older we get; disease and age set in, and we become more dependent. With the use of medical alert systems, seniors can be as independent as the want to be and still maintain a level of safety. Comfort Keepers® recommends Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) from SafetyChoice®. These are very simple, convenient, and easy ways to get help while in an emergency.
These are life-saving tools that can be worn as necklaces or bracelets, which allows them to be relatively unobtrusive when worn. Every device has wireless communication, which means that they can connect to the phone line in the home with only the touch of a button. Once activated, there’s an instant two-way communication with medical device emergency staff that are available 24/7.
Again, by only the press of a button, medical alerts can be sent out. It provides a level of comfort not only for the wearer, but also family and friends who are not there. Once activated, the SafetyChoice® Centralized Monitoring Station alerts all appropriate emergency channels. There is an instantaneous response, meaning no delay in help getting to you. This simple device is convenient and can save a life.
There are several choices for medical alert systems:
Personal Emergency Response Systems
Medical Alert Bracelets
These life-saving devices are worn conveniently on the wrist. While they are often preferred by men, they can be worn by all.
Medical Alert Necklace
These are alert products that have the same safety as the bracelets; however they are worn on a cord around the neck. They are comfortable and convenient.
Medical Alert Consoles
Lastly there are the tabletop units that are the brains of the entire system. Whenever a button is pressed on either a bracelet or a necklace (or the console itself), these are the units that send the message for help.
Comfort Keepers® assesses your needs for safety and can recommend the product that’s best for you. Comfort Keepers® visits the home, works with the family to determine their needs, and demonstrates how these care products help seniors stay safe while maintaining their independence in the home.
