Looking for a Great Gift for Mother’s or Father’s Day?

Are you a caregiver who is looking for “The Perfect Gift” for your aging mom and/or dad?  Are they independent, but you worry about their home safety?  Do you know that a medic alert system can bring you (and them) peace of mind?  

Around the Clock Medical Alarms is a nationwide provider of the Personal Emergency Response (PERS) device.  They are able to help you to help them to never be alone and to be able to get help any day, time, or reason — 24/7, 365, even if they cannot speak!  

Unlike many of our competitors, we do not have a contract and your loved one can use our service for as little or much as they need.  “None of us have a time ticker or a crystal ball to know how long we might need this kind of service,” states owner, Linda Bass.  “To ask a senior to commit to a long-term contractual obligation is just wrong on so many levels!”  

Following are some of the FAQ’s that we have encountered over the last 9 years in business:

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long do I have to sign up for?

There is NO long term commitment with our system. You’re only required to keep the system for 1 month. After that you can send it back any time for any reason and there is NO cancellation penalty.

Is there a Contract?

There are no long-term contracts. Your Around the Clock Medical Alarms service is able to be cancelled at any time. You will be asked to sign our monitoring agreement after ordering, but this agreement states that your service is simply on an month-to-month basis.

Will the monthly rate ever go up?

Absolutely NOT! With us, the price you pay when joining our service will be locked in. You could have it 20 years and it will never increase!

Which price plan is right for me?

Our most popular plan is Quarterly. However, we have the variety of plans to best meet your financial needs. It is recommended that you set up automatic payments on your account through credit card or bank automatic withdrawals.

Are there any funding sources available?

Yes, some long-term care policies can cover the cost of our service.  Additionally, the VA Aid and Attendance pension plan (for wartime veterans and/or their surviving spouse) can provide the service as well.  

Around the Clock Medical Alarms is honored to serve wartime veterans and/or their surviving spouses to stay safe in their homes by providing a PERS (Personal Emergency Response System) that can be paid for through the little-known VA Aid and Attendance Pension.  This system can provide an extension to home care, by bringing peace of mind that our aging heroes are never alone — and that they can get help any day, any time, any reason — even if they cannot speak!  

This Department of Veterans Affairs pension (VA Non-Service Connected Pension with Aid and Attendance Benefit) provides personal care services through home care to veterans and/or surviving spouses, so they can remain in their own home, which is where they want to be.  Subsequently, it can also be used to pay for a medic alert device, as well as assisted living, if, and/or when, they are no longer able to maintain their independence in their own homes.  

Is the button waterproof?

YES, the button is 100% waterproof. It can be worn in the shower or tub. This is very important because a majority of falls occur in the bathroom on wet, slippery surfaces.

What is the range/distance the button will work from the base unit?

Up to 600 feet away, that’s the length of 2 football fields. It’s designed for our clients who have VERY large backyards.

Does it automatically detect a fall?

Yes, there is a fall detection pendant available.  Please note:  ActivePERS technology does not detect falls with perfect accuracy or precision.  IF YOU NEED HELP, YOU MUST ALWAYS PUSH THE HELP BUTTON on your wearable device or base unit.

Is the equipment hard to install or set up?

No, it’s very easy. In fact, most of our clients do it themselves. It’s like plugging in an answering machine. It simply plugs into the phone jack in the wall and the power outlet. If you have any trouble at all, you’ll call our customer service number (which comes with the system) and we’ll walk you through it.

Can I take the system with me if I move, or go to my winter home (or any 2nd residence)?

YES, many of our clients move or have duel residences so it’s quite common. You just bring the system with you. When you get to the new residence, you’ll let us know the new address and phone number and we’ll get everything switched over immediately.

How will emergency personnel gain access to my home?

There are a few options to gain access to the home. 1st option is to hide a key outside the house. You will give us the location of the key to keep on file and our monitoring station would dispatch the location of the key to emergency personnel. 2nd option would be a lockbox, like the home realtors use. It hangs around the front door and secures a key inside of it protected by a 4 digit combination. We would keep that code on file and dispatch the code to emergency personnel as well. A 3rd option would be to give a key to a neighbor or someone close by who we could call in an emergency. A final option would be having the paramedics bypass the lock to gain access into your home.

Will the operator be able to hear me anywhere in my home?

The system is designed to cover a person’s voice throughout 2500-3000 square feet. It’s made to cover a large 2 story home with a basement. The speaker amplifies up to 20 times a normal speaker telephone.

What if I am outside, can the operator hear me there?

No, most likely not. But remember, if in any scenario the operator cannot hear you, they don’t take any chances. The care specialist will send the paramedics to your home and begin calling your emergency list of family and friends to let them know an emergency has taken place. If you would like a different protocol set, we can do that for you.

What kind of personal information do you keep on file?

You will fill out a form that comes with the system. We keep medications, medical history, doctor information, hospital preference, and additional information that might be good to know in an emergency.

Does your system work with VoIP or cable phones?

YES, our advanced system is actually the FIRST in the country to work with VoIP or cable phones. It’s actually one of the questions we ask while taking your order. We will program the system to work with VoIP or cable phone before we send it out to you.

Do I have to have a “land line” phone for the service?

No, not at all. The cellular unit has all the features of the advanced unit, without requiring a “land line.” It does, however, require reliable cell phone signal.

What about protection away from my home?

A Mobile GPS unit is available. This device is designed for individuals who are always “on the go!”

How are services cancelled?

After the first month, you are free to cancel services at any time! The equipment must be returned to Around the Clock Medical Alarms to formally close out your account. If you need to cancel, please give us a call so that we can give you complete instructions on returning our equipment.

Additional questions?  Please don’t hesitate to give us a call, so that we might be able to answer those as well.  If you are looking for a great gift idea, or find that this system can be a solution to your problems of helping your aging grandparents, parents, neighbors, or others to maintain their safety and independence, we would be honored to protect them with an Around the Clock Medical Alarms system!

Medical Alarms in Ladue MO: Fall Detection Devices

What Can a Medical Alert Device Do for You?

Back when they first came out, medical alert devices weren’t as sophisticated as they are now. They were able to put the wearer in touch with help in an emergency, but that was about all they could do. Today’s medical alert device can pinpoint your location for emergency services and even detect a fall.

 

Medical Alert Devices Are More Than Just a Button

It’s tempting to look at a medical alert and see just a button that contacts help in an emergency. But today’s medical alert systems offer so much more than that. The entire system works together to improve communication and to get help to you in an emergency, of course. But the system has technology inside that can do things like let a dispatcher know that you might have fallen, even if you’re not able to tell someone that yourself.

 

Medical Alert Devices Offer Independence

You might also worry that you’re going to be tied to something that restricts you in some way or that “tells on you” to family members. That’s not what medical alert devices do, but it’s understandable that you might be worried how the device will impact your ability to be as independent as you want to be. The reality is that with the ability to call for help quickly if you need to, you can be more independent and may find yourself feeling more adventurous.

 

Personal Safety Is a Key Goal

One of the biggest goals of any type of medical alert device involves keeping the wearer as safe as possible. That means that whether you’re at home going through your normal daily routine or running errands, you’re going to be able to let someone know you need help. Fumbling with a cell phone to call for help might be a concerning thought, but it’s a huge relief to know that you can push a button and help will be on the way quickly.

 

Finding the Right Medical Alert Device

It’s important to look at the features of each device you’re considering. If you’d like the one that automatically detects situations in which you might have fallen or become injured, there are devices that have those features. Make sure that you double-check what the device’s capabilities are so that you’ve got exactly what you need.

Knowing that you’re able to reach help instantly can be a huge relief, both for you and for the people who love you.

Fall Detection in Jackson MO: Fall Detection Importance

What Is a PERS?

If your elderly family member is interested in remaining as independent as she can for as long as possible, a PERS device could be exactly what she needs. That might sound backward to her at first because the PERS is something that she wears. But, this small electronic device really can make a big difference in your elderly family member’s overall safety and well-being.

Personal Emergency Response System in Ladue MO: PERS Alert

Personal Emergency Response System in Ladue MO: PERS Alert

They’re a “Personal Emergency Response System”

A PERS is a small device that your elderly family member wears. These devices are used as a communication device in order to get help when/if she needs it. Just having one can help your elderly family member to feel more secure. Additionally, if she has one, you may feel more comfortable with her decision to age in place. 

They’re Portable

One of the best things about a PERS is that it’s extremely portable. Your senior can put it on and not have to think about it again because it’s not bulky or difficult to wear. She can usually wear the PERS as a pendant, on her clothing, or around her wrist. There may be other options, too, that leave the device readily available, but that is also extremely wearable and easy to access.

They’re Easy to Use

Another benefit for your senior is the fact that personal safety monitors are deliberately simple to operate. There’s usually only one button and easy-to-read indicators. There’s typically also a large speaker and a sensitive microphone. During an emergency situation, a complicated device is not going to be what your elderly family member needs. Simple is going to get her the help she needs quickly. In addition, there are fall detection buttons, which automatically detect and activate if she falls.

Technology also now offers equipment that does not require a home phone line and “go anywhere” devices, which are about the size of a flip phone, and can assist them wherever they may go. So, in today’s world, there are no limitations — or excuses — for her to deny the ability to be protected with a PERS device.

They’re Able to Notify You IF/When Your Senior Needs Help

Another feature that many PERS devices have is the ability to notify you anytime the device is activated, other than an inadvertent or accidental push.  The Response Center has all contact information and will call “Must Notifies” on a subscribers list, if/when an emergency occurs.  These do not have to be “lights and sirens” situations, (such as ambulance, fire, or police), but may also include the need for lift assists or a family member/friend to come check on them, because they “don’t feel well.”

With a PERS “medical alert device”, she is never alone and can get the help she needs when she needs it! 

Talk to your elderly family member about what features she’s most interested in with a personal emergency response system.  There are a variety of PERS devices that can meet her needs easily and without cramping her style at all.

Around the Clock Medical Alarms has NO Contract.  NO Hidden Fees.  NO Long-Term Commitment.  NO Worries. However, the biggest benefit is that she is never alone and can get help simply by pushing her button.  The Around the Clock Medical Alarms EMD (Emergency Medical Dispatch) certified Response Center is available 24/7, 365 to assist with helping to keep her safe and independent!
