What to Consider When Purchasing an Emergency Response System

PERS: A Guide to Evolving Personal Emergency Response Systems - Security  Sales & IntegrationWednesday, June 29th, 1:00-1:45pm                                             Open to all/free                         

Dan Grappi of Be Safer at Home, a Connect America Company, will discuss what is helpful to know before purchasing a personal emergency response system (PERS). Dan’s company owns Lifeline but he will talk about what to look for in buying any medical alert system. Do you want one that connects to a landline and only works at home? Or a GPS system that can be used away from home? Or is automatic fall detection important to you? There is a lot to consider! Dan will also talk about the typical cost, financial assistance available from agencies like Minuteman Senior Services, what to consider before signing a contract, and the uses of alert systems beyond getting assistance after a fall including medication management.
