Home care: Where to find It

Emergency Response Systems

For emergency help when you are alone and cannot get to the phone.

A personal emergency response system (ERS) is an electronic device which helps people in an emergency.  The system is connected to a person’s phone and programmed to signal a response center once a “HELP” button is activated.  ERS services are used mostly by people who live alone.  Usually there is a monthly charge for this service.  Ask about getting one free or for a low price.
