Personal Emergency Response

About the System
A personal emergency response system is a unit which can be activated in the event of an emergency situation. A land line telephone in the home is required.

By pressing a button on either a bracelet or necklace (provided), the 24-hour emergency center can speak directly with the client, and can contact the client's family, emergency contact person or emergency services. These units are designed to provide a sense of security to those who have serious physical limitations or are living alone.
Sliding Fee Scale
An annual assessment is conducted to monitor client needs. Charges for these services are determined using the sliding fee scale shown and are based on the client's income.
