Emergency phone dialers are just one of many methods to summon help at the touch of a button. The waterproof help button is lightweight and it can be worn on the wrist, around the neck as a pendant, or securely clipped onto a pocket or belt. All that is necessary to connect to a help line is to push the button.

Well-trained emergency personnel take the call and quickly determine the appropriate course of action. If you are able to speak with them over the console, they will get a verbal assessment of your condition. If you cannot speak or if you are too far from the console for your voice to be heard, they will notify the appropriate personnel according to your pre-determined selection. Local rescue personnel will automatically be notified if you are unable to speak or to be heard.

Benefits of Emergency Phone Dialers

The fear of being alone and being injured immobilizes hundreds of thousands of seniors. The peace of mind for seniors and family members offered by emergency phone dialers is priceless. Restoring the ability and confidence to resume or continue a normal daily routine improves the mental, physical, and spiritual condition of the elderly.

Every year that a senior is able to live at home instead of in an assisted living facility, he or she is saving an average of $125 per day. Statistics show that about one-fourth of the seniors who fall are transferred from hospital care to an assisted living facility. This is due in part to the delay in getting treatment immediately following the fall.
