Although this is a grim statistic, you don’t “have to fall” … to be “alarm appropriate!”
- Do you live alone?
- Are you prone to fall or concerned that you may fall?
- Do you want to continue to live independently in your own home?
- Would the assurance that you could get help from anywhere in your home (24/7, 365) provide peace of mind to you and your family?
- Do you take more than four medications daily?
- Have you been diagnosed with Heart Disease, Stroke, Pulmonary Disorders, Cancer, Parkinson’s Disease, Osteoporosis, Diabetes, or Arthritis?
- Are you using a cane, walker, or other assistive device, to navigate in your home?
- Are you receiving assistance with meal preparation, bathing, dressing, or restroom needs?
- Have you been hospitalized or to the emergency room within the past 12 months?
Although this list is brief, it is packed full of potential threats to your well-being. It can be used as a self assessment tool to help you to identify any need that you may have for a medical alarm device. Since each person’s health and situation is different, you should feel free to contact and consult with a trusted healthcare professional on this matter.
Individuals who have a PERS device maintain their independence longer
Typically, your need for a medical alarm service is dependent upon your health and your ability to remain independent.

Remember, that “Emergencies NEVER Make Appointments!”
Could you get Help, if it happened to you?
