Personal Emergency Response System (PERS) Service: This is a medical alert service to assure that frail, elderly persons at risk of falling or living alone can have access to help right away. A transmitter pendant or button is worn around the neck or wrist all the time. In the event of an emergency or whenever help is needed, the pendant's button is pressed. This results in a signal being picked up by a unit that is connected to the phone line and that calls our company's Call Center that is always open. The Call Center’s operator will speak to the caller over the base unit's speaker phone and if help is needed, family, friends, neighbors or EMS would be called to respond.
Phillips Medication Dispensing System (PMD): This is an automated medication dispensing system that can provide medications at the prescribed times. At the time when medication needs to be taken, the PMD will sound a reminder and the subscriber will be prompted to press the correct level to have the medication dispensed in a little plastic cup. If the medication reminder is not followed by the subscriber taking the medication out of the PMD, the unit will call family to ask them to follow up. All records of when the medication was taken is logged and viewed via a secured website viewable from family caregivers remotely. Refilling of the PMD with more medications is the responsibility of the family or the subscriber's designated representative (i.e. Home care nurse). Because of the time and cost involved with the setup and installation, the PMD requires a 1 year commitment by the subscriber.
Lifeline Personal Help Buttons (PHB) are comfortable, attractive and are designed to help seniors at home access quick assistance when needed while encouraging constant wear for continuous protection. At the same time, the buttons meet program needs for troubleshooting, cleaning and reliable performance. The PHBs are lightweight, waterproof and automatically detect and report low-battery conditions to minimize false low-battery reporting.
