Elderly Care At Home: Medical Alert Necklaces
Technology from Comfort Keepers in State College, PA, keeps seniors safe even when they are home alone
With age, the risk of falls, injuries, and medical emergencies increases. Many seniors receive elderly care at home in order to stay safe, comfortable, and independent as their health declines, but unless someone can provide them with assistance round the clock, there will be times when they are home alone.
While your loved one may enjoy their privacy, you may be worried about their safety when no one is there to assist them. At Comfort Keepers, we have a solution that can allow your parent to stay at home alone and perform their daily tasks and activities and give you peace of mind at the same time. Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) are innovative devices that can save your loved one's life in case of an emergency of any kind, whether it is a medical emergency, fall or burglary.
PERS are tabletop units that are connected to our Central Monitoring Station, where our elderly care at home staff works non-stop and can help your loved one whenever they need assistance. In order to enable your loved one to do whatever they please at home and freely move around their entire property, PERS also comes with a medical alert necklace.
Medical alert necklaces are unobtrusive devices that allow seniors to communicate with our emergency operators at the station whenever they feel they are in some sort of danger or are experiencing an emergency. To talk to our operators, all your loved one has to do is press the button on their medical alert necklace and they will be immediately connected with a member of our staff. After determining the cause of the distress call, our operators will notify emergency responders - your loved one's elderly care at home provider, the police, medics or any other appropriate emergency channel.
Until help arrives, our operators will stay on the line with your parent and do whatever they can to comfort and calm them down. Our systems at the station hold the medical and medication histories of our clients, so we can properly inform emergency responders of your loved one's condition, which can allow medics, for example, to determine how to best help your parent on the spot.
Since we have plenty of PERS models, we are happy to show your loved one how our devices work. Just give us a call today at (814) 283-6162, and schedule your free in-home presentation and one of our elderly care at home experts will visit your parent's home, demonstrate how the products function, and answer all your questions. We are here for you!
