Comfort Keepers Of Racine, WI, Recommends Personal Emergency Response Systems For Added At Home Care
At Home Care Medical alerts system from Comfort Keepers of Racine, WI can help seniors maintain their independence for longer
If your senior mom or dad lives alone, using medical alert systems can give them a confidence boost when performing activities of daily living. These devices allow your loved one to contact experienced staff in case of any kind of emergency. While one of their primary uses is to help seniors if they fall indoors, they can be activated whenever your loved is worried about their health.
Family caregivers can also benefit from installing medical alert systems. They can go out and leave their loved one alone knowing that if something unexpected happens, they can receive help within minutes.
In order to call for help, your senior loved one just needs to push one large button located on a medical alert necklace or bracelet. A trained representative at the SafetyChoice Centralized Monitoring Station will answer the call and dispatch appropriate help, including medical professionals or caregivers. The SafetyChoice personnel will continue communicating with your loved one until help arrives to reassure them everything will be fine. Sometimes just hearing a friendly voice can mean a lot and have a calming effect on an injured or distressed senior.
Medical alert consoles are easy to install. During the installation process, your loved one’s routine won’t be disrupted. Alert units are connected to our monitoring station using a phone line, as it is more stable than an Internet connection. What’s more, once the system is activated, your loved one can expect a response within seconds after transmission. Another useful feature of PERS is that we can provide health and medication history to emergency responders.
We offer various models of bracelets and necklaces to suit the different tastes and needs of our clients. What they all have in common is the button and batteries, which can make sure that the system will continue working even if power goes out. For added safety, the SafetyChoice PERS can be combined with other home monitoring devices which can provide a higher level of security, especially for seniors with dementia or cognitive impairments.
The range of medical alert bracelets and necklaces is typically 200 feet. For seniors with more active lifestyles or those who have large yards or gardens, we can offer devices with a broader range to ensure they are protected in every corner of their home.
