Safety Products For Seniors | Most seniors want to stay in their own homes, and there are some significant health benefits to doing so as they continue to get older. However, making a senior’s home accessible and safe is important. Home health care products and home safety products designed for seniors can give family members peace of mind and make it safe for seniors to live at home.

Medical alert systems help local seniors preserve their independence by providing immediate, stress-free way to get assistance in the case of an emergency. We recommend Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) from SafetyChoice®. With a simple push of a button, help will quickly be on the way.
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. The SafetyChoice® Centralized Monitoring Station will then make the determination of whom to call and in what order. These alert products provide the same safety as bracelets, but are worn on a cord around the neck. They are comfortable and convenient home health care solutions.
According to the Canadian Institute for Health Information, more than one-third of medication-related hospitalizations are due to patients not taking their medicines as directed. We offer specialized pill dispensers for managing more complicated schedules. A TabSafe Medication unit capable of handling a variety of dispensing schedules and doses for each day of the week, with a dispensing button that’s easy to see and feel. As well as a MedMinder Medication Management system that uses smart technology to alert clients when it is time to take a medication dose. The cellular, wireless pillbox locks to keep medications safe and secure and can be easily programmed and managed online via a secure portal.
Home monitoring systems can be used to compliment a number of our Personal Emergency Response Systems for complete protection of your loved one at home. These systems include the following: Window and Door Alarms, Bedside Pressure Mats and Motion Detectors, Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors.
If you are concerned about the safety of your aging loved ones, especially in regard to fire, we can help. While it’s important to rely on the expertise of licensed professionals for certain precautions, we can provide home safety assessments and ensure your loved ones’ environment is safe.
