Nominated Personal Alarm Contacts

When you join our personal alarm service you nominate up to 4 contacts, who we can call for assistance day or night in the event of an emergency, to check on your well-being. These contacts need to live within 30 minutes from you. They should be someone who is known to you such as a family member, friend or trusted neighbour and ideally need a key to your home. It’s also a good idea to get a key lock.

MePACS Saved My Life

Ron was at home having a midday rest late last year, when all of a sudden he was so badly overcome by pain that he couldn’t move.  “I was in so much pain that I could not even reach the phone at the side of my bed to call 000,” recalled Ron.

“I had suffered a major arterial blood clot cutting off blood to my heart and brain which totally incapacitated me.”  Ron lives alone, so nobody knew his life was in grave danger.

“Luckily I had my MePACS medical personal alarm on me and was able to press the button for help.”

Ron, Victoria.

My MePACS Mobile Alarm Saved My Life

Judith was in the backyard of her five and half acre property in the Yarra Valley, when all of a sudden she lost her footing and fell to the ground. “I couldn’t move or get up. I am so glad I had my MePACS mobile personal alarm on me”. recalled Judith.  “I had dislocated my shoulder and broken my arm”

Judith lives alone, so nobody knew she was seriously injured. “If I didn’t have my MePACS alarm, it may have been up to 24 or even 36 hours until someone may have found me, I definitely believe that MePACS saved my life.”

Judith, Yarra Valley.

My MePACS Alarm is my Life Saver

Doreen from Melbourne became a MePACS member over 6 years ago and says her MePACS personal alarm is her lifesaver. Doreen wears the pendent around her neck day and night and it has given both Doreen and her daughter peace of mind that if she fell, had an accident or became unwell help would be only the press of a button away.

Although Doreen’s daughter lives with her, she works long hours each day, so worries about her mum when she’s away. Her daughter also wants to visit family in England in July and without the peace of mind that MePACS personal alarms service gives her, she wouldn’t have the confidence to leave mum on her own.”
