Sadly, it happens almost every day. Aging loved ones and other family members who live alone have serious accidents in the home. Whether it's a bad fall, a sudden illness, or something else, these accidents happen without warning – and loved ones are often left nearly paralyzed.
Imagine a common scenario of someone slipping in a shower, breaking her leg and rapidly losing blood. If she's unable to reach a phone to dial 911, then this situation could become even more serious. In a worst-case scenario, it could be days before anyone knows what has happened – and by then it will be too late.
This is why we stress the importance of Security Doctors Personal Emergency Response System (PERS) for anyone who lives alone.
Security Doctors PERS enables loved ones to get help in an emergency with the push of a button. Your loved one simply wears a wireless pendant on the wrist or around the neck. It's waterproof, so it can also go in the shower.
If your loved one falls, injures herself, feels ill or just uncomfortable, she simply presses the button on her pendant. Trained dispatch operators at our 24/7 monitoring center will receive the signal. They'll attempt to make contact with your loved one over the system's voice console, located in the home. Dispatchers and your loved one can talk back and forth over the console, even if the console is in another room.
Even if your loved one is unable to communicate, we have procedures to help her. We'll notify the appropriate authorities (police, fire or EMS). We can also notify relatives or neighbors. Plus, we can supply responders with critical medical information, such as prescriptions, medical history or doctor contact information.
The system is extremely easy to use, easy to setup (it comes pre-programmed, ready to use), and it's a fraction of the cost of assisted living. Most importantly, it can save lives, and the peace of mind is invaluable.
