Living in sunny Queensland, our client Anne now feels safer and more secure MePACS, knowing that our 24/7 response team is always ready to look out for her safety and wellbeing.
“What stood out to me about MePACS in particular, compared to the other personal alarm options I was given, was that they offered a 24/7 emergency response service. So I could be guaranteed that someone would answer my signal for help, even if it was the middle of the night, and I wouldn’t be burdening my friends or family if I didn’t need them. I thought, ‘that’s the right personal alarm for me’ and I have been with MePACS ever since.”
“I’m very pleased with the MePACS service – the response team are always kind and friendly when I do my check in or a monthly pendant test. It makes me feel very reassured that when I have a medical emergency, they will reassure me that everything is okay, and I’m in safe hands with help on the way.”
“If you’re a senior who lives alone like me, I would certainly recommend a MePACS alarm. It is essential for us.”
Since joining the MePACS personal alarm service, Anne says that she definitely made the right decision for her personal health.
“I had a massive fall last year and ended up in hospital with a broken arm. When I was in rehabilitation, the occupational therapist recommended that I should have a personal alarm at home and when I go out by myself, because I was now prone to falls. I knew it would be an important safety measure for me, especially as I live alone and enjoy my independence.”
“I have the MePACS Home Alarm for wearing around the house and garden, because I only have a small backyard, and the Mobile Alarm for when I go out. It’s an easy switch and it gives me great peace of mind to know that I am covered if I have a medical emergency.”
Anne has multiple medical appointments to attend in Brisbane and used to worry about going out alone – but thanks to quick actions of the MePACS 24/7 emergency response service, she can retain her confidence to keep being independent.
“I don’t drive and I use a lot of public transport by myself. When I went to appointments, I worried about having a fall and the possibility of being disoriented or hurt and not being able to call for help quickly. Now I just press the button on the Mobile alarm, MePACS will answer and get the help that I need for me.”
“The MePACS Mobile alarm is quite convenient because I can clip it to my belt or wear it around my neck so it’s secure and I can easily reach it. I always have my mobile phone with me but navigating through the numbers and everything while in a state of distress is not what I want to do at all.”
“MePACS has restored my confidence to go out by myself, and my family are very relieved to know I wear a MePACS alarm all the time.”
At MePACS, we are proud to be able to support people like Anne, who despite some challenges, continue to live a full life knowing that help is just a button press away.
