Despite popular belief Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) are for everyone. Yes, PERS are extremely helpful for seniors – but the reality of the situation is that accidents happen everywhere and to everyone.
Let’s start with the workplace: salons, restaurants, construction sights, bakeries, and industrial work sights are all environments where precautionary measures need to be enforced. Sharp objects, hot surfaces, wet surfaces, heavy machinery, and many other tools pose a danger in the workplace. Not to mention, if an incident occurs the confusion caused by the size of the work grounds and the number of staff can consume valuable time. A PERS improves response time by providing access to the central monitoring station at the touch of a button.
What about protecting your family? Certain areas of the home are more dangerous than others, for example, the risk of incident is greater anywhere there is water. To combat this issue waterproof PERS devices monitor action around the pool or in the bathroom, and provide professional assistance in the case of an accident. Children are innately curious; they will taste, open and play with anything. Install PERS devices in problematic household areas to ensure the safety of your family. Going out for the evening? PERS has you covered. Instead of worrying about your children you can enjoy the evening knowing that the babysitter can contact help without having to find or remember phone numbers.
Heart attacks, seizures and strokes are unpredictable and happen to people of all ages. In these instances response time is crucial; therefore if help is only a button press away – serious repercussions are minimized. We suggest installing PERS in public places such as sports facilities, schools, stores, community centers, medical clinics, or the beach to make calling for help as simple as possible.
Caregivers, PERS will save you time. As an out of home caregiver you’re not always available to provide assistance immediately. Since PERS users require an average of 91.2 fewer hours of personal care per month the need for caregiver/family member to constantly check on an individual is lessened, giving peace of mind to both caretaker and user. Features such as two-way voice communication, accurate fall sensors, inactivity monitoring, door, cupboard or medication cabinet supervision, and direct-call programmability enhance patient safety while constant support and assurance reduce the stress of the caregiver.
Grandma and Grandpa PERS is for you too, it will be a lifesaver for both you and your loved ones. Rather than moving into a long–term care facility prematurely PERS enables you to reside in the comfort of your home for a longer period of time. This is possible because daily monitoring and immediate assistance are available at the press of one button. PERS provides instant communication anywhere within the range of the base unit. Features like two-way voice communication, accurate fall sensors, waterproof devices and medication monitoring implement the benefits of a care home into the home at a lower cost. Go ahead, invite the grandchildren over, garden, cook, or tinker with some tools – whatever you’re hobby may be Personal Emergency Response Systems give you the freedom to do what you love!
Personal safety does not have specifics – it applies to everyone. How could a PERS better your life?
