How PERS Devices Can Make Your Loved One More Independent
Personal Emergency Response Systems (also known as PERS devices) are a great way to help your loved one maintain their freedom and independent lifestyles. Since PERS devices and other medical alert systems are able to communicate with friends, family, neighbors, and other caregivers, they can offer peace of mind for both you and your elderly loved one. With the simple press of a button, you can be reached to assist your loved one in an emergency or non-emergency.
First thing's first: finding the medical alert system that fits into your loved one's current lifestyle and suits your needs as a caregiver. Read on to learn more about our mobile personal emergency response systems as well as our home-based medical alert systems.
Mobile PERS Devices
The great outdoors poses a few different risks to aging bodies. For one thing, falls are just as prevalent outside of the home as they are in the house, and finding balance can be tricky. All it takes is uneven ground, crumbling pavement, or simply wearing the wrong type of shoes outside to cause a potentially harmful injury. Luckily, confidence and independence are no longer limited to the home and surrounding yard thanks to the emergence of mobile medical alert systems. With a mobile PERS device, your loved one can still run their errands, visit their friends and family, enjoy the great outdoors, and exercise on the go! All the while, you have peace of mind knowing that if an accident were to occur, your loved one could still call for help no matter where they are.

Home-Based PERS Devices
With a home-based medical alert system, your loved ones can remain completely independent in their homes as they get older without ever actually being alone. A home-based PERS device remains in the home at all times and can call for help in an emergency in the home and surrounding yard at the press of a button. Home-based PERS devices are fantastic for people who don't often leave the house and spend a lot of time alone. LogicMark provides several home-based PERS devices, including the FreedomAlert, GuardianAlert, and Caretaker Sentry.
FreedomAlert is the world's first programmable two-way voice pendant communicator with no monthly fees. Personal security has never been so small or affordable. The FreedomAlert can be programmed to call family, friends, or neighbors, at any time from anywhere in the home and surrounding yard. If the programmed contacts are unreachable – the system can default to call an emergency 911 operator.
The FreedomAlert can be programmed with up to four (4) contacts to call anytime. The system can be customized with the three position switch on the back of the base unit to select one of three modes. A power outlet and an active landline are all that is needed for the unit to operate. The medical pendant is powered by a lithium-ion battery that lasts up to 6 months on a single charge.
