Monitored personal alarms help so many older Australians enjoy their retirement years without having to worry about what might happen in a medical emergency, whether they are at home or out being active in their local community.
With a fast response personal alarm service like MePACS available 24/7, our client Shirley now has great peace of mind that her safety, health and well-being are prioritised.
“I decided to join the MePACS service after a fall a few years ago and I wanted to set myself up so there was no way anyone was going to move me into a nursing home. MePACS was the first thing I needed for my security.”
“Having a MePACS personal alarm makes me feel that my plans are in action. It makes me feel safe and self-sufficient, because I am the one making sure I can still live independently and not have to worry my family at all.”
“I’m really glad that MePACS started me on my journey of looking after myself in my senior years.”

Unfortunately, Shirley had to press her MePACS alarm when she had a fall in the hallway at home and couldn’t get up.
“I don’t remember much except for pressing my MePACS alarm despite the pain I was in. While I was lying on the floor, the response team quickly called my neighbour and an ambulance which was here in minutes. I was so relieved.”
“MePACS saved my life actually. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for MePACS because nobody would have come to check on me. It’s an excellent service.”
The MePACS personal emergency response system is designed for senior Australians, those with chronic conditions or recovering from surgery to keep them safe and independent in their own homes. We guarantee a trained professional will respond to your signal for help within 2 minutes.
Our personal alarms are available as home and mobile alarms – giving you peace of mind when you are at home or out and about.
Shirley was taken to a hospital in Melbourne for treatment and recovery, while MePACS let her family know about her medical emergency.
Now, she’s even more grateful to have the MePACS ‘daily call’ welfare check every morning so she knows our 24/7 emergency response team are looking out for her safety.
“It’s nice to have a reminder in the mornings that MePACS care about my well-being. I feel confident to live alone and go about my day so I recommend a MePACS alarm to anyone who wants to feel safer at home. And have great peace of mind.”
“It’s just that extra reassurance if I were to have another fall or feel unwell, I can quickly signal for help without having to get to my phone. A real person is there to answer within seconds to check if I’m okay – it doesn’t matter what time it is. They’re always very friendly and polite.”
Shirley likes to knit and spends plenty of time outside in her garden – with her MePACS alarm on, she can focus on doing what she loves best.
“My MePACS pendant is always sitting here around my neck quite comfortably. I wear it in the shower, and when I’m out in the backyard, so I know I’m covered if I have another fall – especially if it is slippery.”
