Why a Personal Emergency Response System?
Injuries are the sixth leading cause of death in the 75-and-over population, with falls the leading cause of injury-related deaths. 60% of all falls happen at home. 90% of those who get help within one hour will continue living independantly. After 12 hours only 10% of people will continue to live at home.
A Medical Alert Alarm System or Personal Emergency Response (PERS) System is a device used to help people that are at risk living alone in their homes. Our Medical Alert Alarm System provides safety, security and peace of mind knowing that help is just the push of a button away 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
