For seniors who live alone, feeling safe and keeping connected with family are high on the priority list. So why not combine the two into a simplified touch screen with an integrated personal alarm that keeps you connected to friends and family as well as emergency services?
Our client Daphne lives in Victoria and is grateful for the 24/7 support of MePACS Personal Alarms, especially at the start of her day with the new MePACS Touch Screen.
“I get up in the morning and check the time, the weather and see the news updates all on the MePACS Touch. The screen is quite large so it’s very easy to read and find what app I want. I use it every day.”
“I wore the MePACS pendant to bed so I could press the button if I needed help in the middle of the night. It was very reassuring to know that someone would quickly answer at any time if I was feeling unwell.”
Communication is key
Daphne loves staying in touch with her family. With the new MePACS Touch Screen, she can now see them through a video call, but also signal for help to MePACS Personal Alarms at the touch of a button.
“The MePACS Touch makes it so easy to talk to members of my family who don’t live near me – they call me whenever they like and I am so grateful to see them, even if it isn’t in person.”
“It’s convenient, easy-to-use and a great safety communication device. I’m very happy with the MePACS Touch.”
Prioritising safety and security
Her daughter Carol agrees that the larger size of the MePACS Touch was fantastic for her mum, with no fiddly buttons or hidden features to get confused about.
“We were initially worried that the MePACS Touch would be too complicated for mum to use in her 80s, but that wasn’t the case at all. She liked that everything she wanted to use was right in front of her on the screen.”
Designed with seniors in mind, the MePACS Touch makes living independently easier and safer.
“The best thing for me is being able to video call and send photos to mum, so she can stay updated with all of our family. And when we aren’t able to visit, it’s so convenient to have a face-to-face video chat on the same device.”
“We think it’s great that the MePACS Touch is integrated with an app that we can all download on our smart phones. Mum is included in what we talk about as a family, and she can communicate on a device that’s personalised for her and easy to navigate.”
Be confident and independent
Using the MePACS Touch every day helped Daphne keep her mind active, as well as know that she could rely on MePACS to answer if she pressed her personal alarm pendant for help.
“Mum is quite tech-savvy for her age and already has an iPad, but we wanted a device with a monitored personal alarm service for her safety. Then we don’t have to worry about her when she lives alone and there’s a chance of a medical emergency.”
Carol and her family value the dedication of MePACS to support Daphne and help her feel safer in her own home, with a professionally trained emergency response team looking out for her 24/7.
“The MePACS team were always patient and understanding with mum, so it was nice to hear they took the time to ensure she was okay.”
“We would really recommend the MePACS Touch to other families who want to stay connected with their senior mum or dad who lives alone. Not only did the device give us peace of mind that she would have access to 24/7 emergency response, but we loved that she could use it all by herself and communicate with the whole family – even in her 80s!”
The MePACS fast response personal alarm service has been keeping our clients safer at home for more than 30 years. Based in Australia, our range of personal alarms are ideal for different lifestyles and medical conditions so you can make the right choice when it comes to your personal safety.
“I would certainly recommend the MePACS Touch to others – you have 24/7 assistance, the ability to talk to your family and daily reminders all in the one simple and effective screen.”
