In an emergency, time is critical. Our KeepSafe system is an advanced Personal Emergency Reporting System (PERS) that will summon the help you need... IMMEDIATELY! Live confidently in your home knowing that you can get the medical attention you need FAST...all by simply pushing a button! KeepSafe is a personal emergency reporting system that comes in a table top unit. The system will also come with a wireless waterproof transmitter that you can wear as a neck, wrist, or belt pendant. The user can call for help by simply pressing the emergency or panic button on the main unit, or by pressing the button on their pendant.
One of the biggest differences between a traditional alarm system and a PERS system is that the operators are specially trained to handle medical emergency situations. Whenever help is summoned, the operator will ask the occupant if everything is okay.
The unit is a 2-way voice unit, that once activated, can hear what is going on in the home, as well as communicate with the occupant. This is very important for two reasons. First, the homeowner does not have to rush to answer the phone as they would with a traditional alarm system. They can simply talk and the operator can hear them. Second, there are cases where the occupant of the home has had an accident and is unable to communicate with the operator. Help can be summoned and the next of kin can be notified of the situation.
Stay at Home Longer... Safely...
The facts are that 1 in 3 of the 65 million Americans over 65 will fall in any given year.
Seniors are hospitalized for fall related injuries 5 times more often than they are for injuries from all other causes. Falls are the leading cause of accidental death for seniors according to the Center for Disease Control. Over half the people who fall will require assistance from someone else to get up. After a fall or other emergency, 90% of seniors who get help within one hour will continue independent living, but after 12 hours without help, only 10% of seniors will continue living at home.
Nearly half of all seniors who incur a serious injury will never fully recover and many lose their ability to function independently for the rest of their lives. A good proportion end up in nursing homes, making falls and the injuries that result, one of the most substantial health threats facing seniors.
