Personal Emergency Response System
In a home emergency, Link to Life users push a small, portable button, usually worn on a necklace, wrist or clipped to a belt.
The button signals a call center where trained professionals call the Link to Life user to see if the type of help needed can be determined over the phone. If there is no response, the staff person will then call a neighbor or relative on the responder list to check on the user. Service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Many people do not get a daily visit or phone call; Link to Life can fill the gap. Each day, the subscriber is required to activate a button to indicate all is well.
Families can record up to eight personal reminders, such as when to take a medication, to play at preset times. This allows individuals to remain personally responsible with a little help.
Missed medication doses or taking the wrong dose is one of the top five reasons for re-admittance to the hospital or nursing. The Link to Life Medication Dispenser automatically triggers a reminder signal each time a dose is scheduled to ensure medications are taken on-time, every time.
The risk of falling, an ongoing concern for anybody with impaired balance or mobility, increases with age. More than half of all falls take place within the home. The Link to Life Fall Detector is the ideal solution for reliable fall detection and alert.
