Reasons to Get a Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS)

A PERS system placed in the home before a serious accident can save lives and prevent costly medical bills. Click here for more info & pricing.

The key is prevention before serious life-threatening events happen!

 When a person has PERS, they normally live in their home approximately 5 years longer because they survived medical emergencies at home with more reliable emergency communications and quicker medical treatments.

 The trend in America is Health Care at Home; more people will be using PERS.

 PERS are highly recommended by the following organizations: New England Journal of Medicine, Southern Medical Journal, United States Department of Health and Human Services, Center for Disease Control.

 PERS and a smoke detector is the only device that is recommended by the U.S. Government and the CDC.

 Most long term insurance companies will cover the cost of PERS.

 Peace of Mind for the Customer, their friends, and loved ones. Gives a secure feeling in their home.

 History of falls or inability to get up by themselves (ability to raise themselves from chairs, toilet or bathtubs/showers)

 PERS is an inexpensive alternative, saving thousands per month not having to go to assisted living or nursing home.

 US Government studies estimate that at least 260,000 of the 1 million people over age 65 in nursing homes don’t have to be there – and don’t want to be there.

 PERS provides independent living without feeling alone, losing self-esteem, and maintaining quality of life.

 One out of three Americans age 65 and older falls at least once a year. The chances of surviving a fall are six times greater if you are found within one hour.

 The sooner medical help is received the better the outcome, minimizing risk of permanent damage, disability or even death.

 An immediate response on a 2 –way conversation, with someone who can contact paramedics, fire, police, or loved ones.

 It’s not the emergency itself that results in debilitating injuries, but the fact that the sufferer lays unattended for a long period of time.

 Physically Frail or Suffers from Physical weakness Anyone who lives alone or is left alone for extended periods of time.

 Persons that use mobility assisted devices such as wheel chairs, walkers, crutches, canes, chair lifts, scooters…etc

 Person that is required to take several medications daily for chronic aliments such as heart disease, stroke, COPD, osteoporosis, diabetes, arthritis, asthma, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy...etc.

 Hospitalized in the last 12 months

 Sensory Deficits (vision, balance, hearing)

 History of medicine management – compliance with med’s.

 Home hazards – stairs, bathtubs, basements, attic’s.

 Knowing help is a push button away, any time day or night, even when you are not within reach of a telephone.

 The demand for PERS today is very large. Baby Boomers are buying them for their parents. In the future Baby Boomers will be the ones needing them.

 With our system, there is a medical profile on the refrigerator. In the event that the EMT is dispatched, they are told to take the medical profile to the emergency room with them. The emergency room doctors feel that the medical profile is very helpful to them in an emergency situation.
