Personal Emergency Response Systems give you the peace of mind knowing that if your loved one were to have an accident that they would have access to emergency assistance at the touch of a button.

However, some devices on the market don’t verify the authenticity of these alerts, meaning the user’s designated contact or emergency services may be unnecessarily contacted, which can become problematic. Luckily, these issues are avoided through alarm verification via direct communication with the APERS Care Team!

Alarm Verification

When your loved one presses the emergency button on their medic alert, a signal is sent straight to our specially trained Care Team, who will call the user through their device, opening a two-way voice channel where they will be able to get an understanding of the situation, allowing the Care Team to verify that the alarm is genuine. Then, the Care Team will contact the emergency contact person, and if required, notify emergency services, ensuring that your loved one will have assistance as soon as possible.

Providing Emergency Assistance When Your Loved One Needs It Most

Our ISO 9001: 2015 quality assured Control Room Care Team is accessible 24/7, 365 days a year. Whether your loved one has had a fall or medical emergency in the middle of the night or on Christmas day, the APERS Care Team will be there for them no matter the situation.
