For older adults and individuals with disabilities who want to live at home but need quick access to help and emergency care, a personal emergency response system or “help button” is a great solution, as recommended by AARP. The technology behind these alert systems has evolved far beyond the “help, I’ve fallen” button. Today there are lots of options to consider! How do you pick the right one?
First, choose a local provider who can come to your home and get you connected with 24/7 care and your local emergency services. For seniors and disabled individuals living in Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts, Lifeline RI is a personal alert system run by a Providence, RI team. Because Lifeline RI is local, they always can come out to your home to set up your system for you and show you how to use it, including a live test call.
