Home Health Aide in Fairfax, VA
Along with a Comfort Keepers home health aide, our PERS medical alerts system is there to keep your loved ones safe
For many seniors who have a home health aide from Comfort Keepers, the question arose regarding what to do in an emergency when their caregiver was not in their Fairfax, VA home. We took these questions very seriously. We are proud to team up with SafetyChoice® and present the Personal Emergency Response System. Designed to provide emergency communications for your loved ones when you or their provider are not in their home.
The simple fact is that far more seniors fall and are injured every year when they are alone than do when their caregivers are in the home. What might start out as a minor injury can quickly become life-threatening when help cannot be quickly summoned. With the PERS system, your loved one simply pushes the button on their medical alert necklace or bracelet and they instantly connected to the SafetyChoice® Centralized Monitoring Station.
At the Station
The lines at the Centralized Monitoring Station are manned by experienced agents who are familiar with a wide array of medical emergencies. They can summon the necessary medical services and stay on the line helping to keep your loved one alert, oriented, and calm until the EMS team shows up. The entire system has been designed to be simple to use.
Your home health aide can place the console in any central location in your home. The only requirements are a power outlet and access to a phone line. The necklace and bracelet are designed to connect wirelessly to the central unit. A single push on the button, the unit sends out the request for help and an agent will start talking to your loved one immediately and remain on the line until help arrives.
