As we get older the thought of losing our independence may frighten us. We have built our lives through hardships, learning, triumphs, and so much more. Just the thought of having something we cherish, such as our ability to live safely at home, possibly being taken away due to old age is unnerving. If you have a loved one who is struggling with these thoughts, but is adamant about staying in their home and keeping a sense of independence – we understand! It’s our mission to provide your loved ones with every possibility to keep their sense of independence and remain in their own homes because we care and it is possible!
With the Personal Emergency Response System, allow yourself the comfort of knowing that your loved one is safe and sound when they are home alone. The device comes in a necklace or bracelet form that can easily be concealed by clothing. This system allows your loved one to have 24/7 access to an emergency response team in case they ever need assistance. This two-way wireless system allows your loved one to have instant communication with a Personal Emergency Response System team member at any time of day. If your loved one activates their PERS, all emergency channels will be alerted instantly.
With the help of the SafetyChoice® Centralized Monitoring Station team, all medical response units will be made aware of your loved one’s medications, medical history, and conditions to ensure proper care is given in a timely manner once first responders arrive. From there, all family members noted on file will be contacted to alert them that their loved one is receiving care.
Rest easy knowing that your loved one is being well cared for not only by the caregiver, but also with the help of the PERS. We understand the challenges family members face when their loved one is in need of assistance but wants to remain independent. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to live in the comfort of their own homes for as long and safely as possible.
If you want to give your loved one the sense of independence they desire, while still having peace of mind – consider getting the Personal Emergency Response System. At Comfort Keepers®, an Albuquerque in-home care agency, we want to give the families of elderly loved ones a sense of security for those they care about, while providing an opportunity for seniors to feel safe and comfortable in their own homes. If you’re ready to take the next step towards giving your loved one their independence back, then give Comfort Keepers® a call today!
