Locally Operated Personal Emergency Response System (PERS)

The CareLine (PERS) unit allows someone to remain in their homes, perform the normal activities of daily living and avoid losing their independence. The system gives peace of mind to both the subscriber and their family. The quick response time minimizes the risk of further injuries that can occur when people do not receive immediate assistance after a fall or major incident.

How it works

Each subscriber has a communicator unit and a portable waterproof button that is worn on a cord around the neck or strap around the wrist. The user can be anywhere inside the home, in the yard, or even on the go with our Mobile Care unit, to benefit from the program. A fall detector waterproof button is an option for subscribers who may have concerns about falling frequently, automatically calling for help when you can’t. Our Mobile Care unit includes a built in fall detector and GPS location services. In most cases, subscribers do not need a phone for CareLine service.

Although CareLine’s normal focus is on the frail and elderly, the service may be utilized by all ages, including latchkey children and pregnant women confined to their homes during a difficult pregnancy.
