MePACS personal alarms have helped many people with a disability to live independently, without the worry of calling family for help in a medical emergency.
Living with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, our client Jess feels safer at home and away with MePACS.
“I decided to take up a MePACS personal alarm because I wanted to live by myself and still feel reassured that I could signal for help in a medical emergency. I think because I was moving out for the first time, it was really important to know I had support from MePACS 24/7.”
Jess is an actress, writer and model from Melbourne. At home on the stage, she is also a passionate disability advocate who enjoys speaking about her lived experiences as someone who has a disability to educate and engage others.
“I would definitely recommend MePACS to others, especially people like myself. Young people living with disabilities want to have as much freedom and choice as we can, so having funded support means that I didn’t have to worry about finances either,” said Jess.
“I feel like I can rely on my MePACS alarm too. It’s right there around my neck and I can press it quickly if I need to. Even if I’m not able to communicate properly, the MePACS team know something is wrong and will call for help for me.”

With NDIS funding, Jess also has the confidence to go about her day and achieve her life goals.
MePACS Home and Mobile bundles are a popular choice for many of our clients with a disability, so they can feel safe and secure at home and away. Along with 4G and GPS location technology, our Mobile Alarm has automatic fall detection to ensure a signal for help is sent to MePACS in the event of a dramatic fall.
With trained response operators guaranteed to answer a signal for help within two minutes, Jess and her family can now have the peace of mind they deserve.
It’s a small alarm, so I don’t have to feel self-conscious about it and I just know that when I’m in or out of the house, I am covered if I have a medical emergency. I can talk directly to the MePACS emergency response team and they call the most appropriate help for me – whether it’s family or Triple 0,” said Jess.
“I know MePACS is looking out for my safety, so it’s definitely a weight off my shoulders.”
