Christmas is a time of giving – to show your loved ones that you care about their welfare and want to help improve their independence.
For the carers of seniors, people living with disabilities or those with compromised immune systems, it can be quite worrying to wonder how they would get essential help in a medical emergency while living on their own.
Valerie and her family agree that her 93 year old mum Ema feels safer with a MePACS personal alarm.
“My mum is prone to falls and also has Asthma and Arthritis, so she needed to have some added security for those times when we’re not at home.
We all feel more secure now knowing there is a trained response team that can answer mum’s signal for help within two minutes. It’s given us great peace of mind.”
Philip and his family now feel at ease knowing that 24/7 assistance is available from MePACS for their loved ones.
“My mum and dad are in their 90’s and live independently in their own home. They wanted the security of knowing that they had a personal alarm on them that could be used instantly in the case of an emergency”.
In one particular emergency, Esma fell and Kevin wasn’t able to help her up.
At the press of a MePACS personal alarm, a response monitor quickly answered and arranged an ambulance to attend.
Philip says that he and his family are reassured that “immediate assistance can be sought from MePACS when mum and dad need emergency help.”
Sandy’s family also benefit from the efficiency and professionalism of the MePACS response team.
Sandy has Muscular Dystrophy, so she is prone to falls and has limited mobility.
Using her NDIS funding, she has a MePACS personal alarm to help her feel safe and independent in her own home.
“I feel very reassured, because I know I can always depend on the MePACS service to answer my signal for help.”
