More and more people are using Personal Emergency Response System (PERS) over the past few years. Due to the current epidemic and conditions that are upon us, the increase in personal protection is always on our minds.
With the technological advancements, seniors can now use our system to live independently for longer. The old mentality of obtaining a PERS device solely based on our doctor and for the recovery of an illness or accident are behind us.
As you’re researching in-home and mobile portable alert systems, understanding the benefits of Medical Alert and personal emergency response systems can be helpful.
Senior Protection by Alarm Guard is one of Canada’s leading providers of Mobile Personal Emergency Response Systems (mPERS). An innovative company that works solely on protecting individuals and offering peace of mind with the simple purpose of safety & independence.
It’s true, while the elderly population are the most common users of medical alert systems, all ages can use them. The benefits provided can be used for anyone, including those who live with a disability at a younger age. Learning about the benefits of Senior Protection can help you see why this investment is crucial to not only your life, but to your happiness in being able to live in your home independently for as long as possible.
Simply put, all seniors can definitely benefit from our medical alert device, but the following listed below are the ones who definitely need to have an emergency response system in place for unexpected events.
All people who live alone. These individuals may not have anyone to depend on in case of an emergency. This can be dangerous if an emergency occurs, such as an intrusion takes place, the person suddenly gets sick, falls or faints, accidentally becomes a victim of a fire. The Senior Protection mobile device is thought of as a buddy that is there for you 24/7. Nobody wants to think about events that may occur or accidents that might happen, but the sad truth is unless you have something in place to help eliminate the response time for help you can be the victim to something tragic that might have been avoided.
Seniors with a history of falling or are becoming a high risk. Whether you fall at home or on the street, a medical alert fall detection system can contact ambulatory services for transportation to the nearest emergency room. At times the elderly can sometimes experience health issues, such as fainting and dizziness. All new mobile medical alert devices supplied by Senior Protection have built-in fall detection ready, this is great for those in need and at the same time can be turned off for those who do not need it yet, but can be turned on at any time in the future without having to purchase a new device.
Anyone who may have mobility issues. The thought of not being able to move when there is an emergency is life-threatening and stressful. If someone falls and can’t get up, they may end up on the floor for hours or, in severe cases, days. With a medical alert device this doesn’t have to happen. People who live alone and have mobility issues can get all the benefits of Personal Emergency Response Systems when they need them, especially seniors.
How Does The Senior Protection Device Work?
1. Push Button or Fall Detection
There are 2 ways that an SOS call can be initiated. With the push of the emergency button, or if the built in fall detection alert senses a fall, the device immediately initiates and connects the person with a trained emergency response agent.
2. Live 2 Way Voice Connection
Our live emergency response agent will immediately assess the situation while speaking live with the customer to gather information on the emergency event. With complete access to their confidential personal profile will allow the agent to properly assess the situation and get the help they need.
3. Taking Action In An Emergency
Depending upon the emergency at hand, our live agent in real time can contact a family member, friend, neighbour or have the emergency services dispatched right away. For added peace of mind the agent can stay on the call until help arrives if needed.
