Many of us have elderly parents that want to live independently in their homes. That can be a concern…we want our parents to have a rich life of independence in their older years but we’re also concerned about their safety.
That’s where personal emergency response systems (P.E.R.S.) come in. They’re an effective, affordable and practical way for elderly parents to maintain their independence while being able to quickly summon help when needed.
P.E.R.S. systems are commonly referred to as medical alert or a medical alarm. The all serve the same purpose: they allow a user to signal the need for help requiring emergency attention. Emergency attention could mean speaking with the monitoring center, contacting a neighbor or emergency responder or dispatching medical personnel.
These systems have a wireless transmitter (and they come in a variety of forms, most common are pendants wrist bands like a watch, and belt clip transmitters) that the user can activate in an emergency. Some have ranges of up to 1000 feet.
P.E.R.S. systems from Hue & Cry come equipped with the latest in technology:
- Water-proof, long-range transmitters, allowing freedom of movement inside most homes and residence walkways.
- Base station that easily connects to existing telephone lines or cellular service for communication. Each base station contains a microphone and speaker, allowing your parents to talk with our emergency response personnel when needed.
- No long-term contracts are required. Cancel service at any time with 30 days’ notice.
With the holiday season upon us, a P.E.R.S. is an ideal gift for your elderly parents. It’s affordable, practical and will provide peace of mind for all of you. Call us at 1-800-800-ALARM for more information.
