Personal Emergency Response System Available 03/26/2010
St. Mary's Medical Equipment is now offering the Personal Emergency Response System from Guardian Medical Monitoring.
Guardian's Personal Emergency Response System is a medical alarm that preserves the independence of seniors while offering an immediate response in the first critical moments of an emergency with hands-free, two-way communication. There is a waterproof button that can be worn as a lightweight pendant or wristband. With a push of the button, a well-trained representative will immediately answer the call and stay on the line until help arrives, whether ambulance, family member, friend or neighbor.
The system operates for up to 24 hours with a re-chargeable back-up battery in the event of a power failure and sends a signal for low battery. Caregivers are notified of emergency alerts. St. Mary's PrimeWise members will receive free installation. (There is no charge for St. Mary's PrimeWise membership.)
