Personal Safety Monitoring


When is it time for a Personal Safety Monitoring System (PSM)?

  • Did you know that falls are not the only reason for benefiting from a PSM?
  • Are you alone several hours a day?
  • Have you fallen in the past year?
  • Do you have a chronic aliment – heart disease, stroke, etc.?
  • Are mobility and balance an issue – use of a cane, walker or other device to help with balance and walking?
  • Are you a recent widow and concerned about your safety?
  • Would you and your family benefit from the peace of mind a PERS could provide?

What happens when the button is pushed?

A trained professional will respond promptly and take action based on your prior instructions. They will:

  • Talk to you over a speaker system (it’s OK if you have pushed it by accident)
  • Notify a family member of your situation
  • Have a neighbor check in on you
  • Dispatch emergency personnel
