Emergency Medical Response for Seniors 24 hours/7 days a week

In a home medical emergency, a senior usually can not reach the telephone and can lie on the floor for hours or days, disconnected from any help. This injury can become life threatening.

A simple press of a button will instantly activate Life Alert’s small base unit located in the house. This small base unit will immediately communicate with our Monitoring Center, initiating amplified two-way voice communication between the senior and our emergency operators. If there is no voice response, we will call a neighbor to check on the senior. If needed, we will also contact the authorities: Paramedics, Fire Department or Police.
