Medical Alerts: A Watchful Presence When You Cannot Be There
Medical alert systems help seniors preserve their independence by providing a fast, easy way to get assistance in the case of an emergency. We recommend Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) from SafetyChoice®, which are activated with a simple push of a button to summon help.
These systems are activated when a loved one presses a button on a medical alert bracelet or necklace (also known as pendants), which then alerts the SafetyChoice Centralized Monitoring Station. TheSafetyChoice Centralized Monitoring Station will then make the determination of whom to call and in what order.

Medical Alert Systems with Bracelet and Necklace Pendants
If a loved one is injured or in other distress, our medical alert bracelets, wristbands and necklaces make it easy to contact help. Simply press a button, and our SafetyChoice® Centralized Monitoring Station will respond promptly. Many seniors, particularly men, prefer the convenience of a medical alert bracelet over the necklace or pendant option.
How they work:
The medical alert systems sends an emergency message via a tabletop console connected to a phone line in the home. These consoles, known as Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS), offer different configurations and features. Learn more about them below.
