Falling can be a minor annoyance for most, but if you’re a senior a fall can result in serious injuries and loved ones worrying about your safety at home. Thankfully, with the Mills-Peninsula Medical Center Personal Emergency Alert Device Program you can retain your independence, while ensuring peace of mind for both you and your loved ones.
The Personal Emergency Alert Device Program is a service that can connect seniors who have fallen to emergency services to get the help they need. Through the use of a help button, which can be worn as a bracelet or as an adjustable necklace, you will be able to communicate your needs directly to the Response Center.
Two different services tailored to fit your individual lifestyle are offered, HomeSafe and GoSafe. Both options offer differing windows of coverage for your safety, although both include:
- All personal help buttons are designed to be waterproof. This is crucial for the shower and bathtub where falls happen most often.
- No long-term contracts.
- No service cancellation fees.
- Maintenance package included. Any repairs or service needed for the equipment is covered in the monthly fee.
- No landline phone needed. Wireless communicators are available.
- A home communicator that works directly with your help button by calling the Response Center when the button has been pressed.
- AutoAlert, which is the most widely adopted proven fall detection technology in the country. If you fall and cannot reach your help button, you will automatically be placed in contact with the Response Center.
