Alfred and Mary Ann have relied on their MePACS personal alarm service since 2017.
When Alfred had a heart attack in 2016, he knew it was time to do something more about monitoring his personal health, especially as he lived independently with his wife Mary Ann.
In their own home, they wanted the peace of mind that comes with knowing MePACS would answer the pendant press within two minutes.
“If anything happened again, I’d have the security knowing that help is available 24/7 from the friendly MePACS team.”
Feeling secure at home was a number one priority for the couple. They didn’t want their family to worry about them either.
Alfred and Mary Ann have the base unit installed in their home, but they each have a pendant that they wear every day, so help is easily called with one press of their MePACS pendant.
They loved the service of MePACS at home so much, they decided to get a mobile alarm so they can feel safe and independent when they socialise, shop and exercise in their local neighbourhood.
“It gives me confidence to go for longer walks as I was always worried going too far, but now the MePACS Mobile Alarm makes me feel more secure.”
Alfred and Mary Ann are now reassured when they go out on their own. They enjoy their afternoon activities more than ever, with the confidence and independence that comes with a MePACS personal alarm.
“It’s also great that my wife Mary Ann can take the MePACS Mobile Alarm with her when she goes to Bingo and I’m at home.”
Why did Alfred and Mary Ann choose MePACS?
MePACS response service is monitored by trained professionals at all times of the day and night, every day of the year. Based in Australia, our friendly team can assess the level of help that you need. We then call the appropriate contact to come and assist – be it a neighbour, family member or paramedic in an emergency situation.
The base unit comes with a pendant, which can be worn around the neck or on your wrist, like a watch. The alarm has two-way communication with the base unit, so there is no need to get a phone. It’s also waterproof, so you can wear it in the bath or shower.
Alfred and Mary Ann share their mobile alarm, so they stay connected to MePACS whether they are at home or out and about. The mobile alarm has a GPS locator and can be used anywhere in Australia that has mobile reception. It is also splashproof, so you can take it out on a rainy day.
