New technology is enabling more home-based senior care. For some, that means checking in on their loved ones via smartphone, tablet, or webcams. But what happens when you aren’t able to contact your loved one? Or they can’t reach out to you? You want to know that help is on its way immediately – so do we. That’s why we provide our Silver Emergency Response System with all of the assisted living suites. Designed for seniors experiencing memory loss and may be prone to wandering, the Emergency Response System allows an after-hours caregiver or family member to report an emergency with just a few keystrokes.

About Our Emergency Response System

An emergency response system is a notification system that can call for help in an emergency. Usually, these systems consist of some sort of receiver that your family members wear that will be triggered by a signal from one or more transmitters placed around your home. When someone triggers a transmitter (usually by pushing a button on top), it sends out a signal over radio frequencies. The receiver, designed to recognize this frequency, quickly notifies your medical alert company for more help.

Benefits of Having Emergency Response Systems in Your Retirement Community

The emergency response systems that we use provide many benefits, such as:

  • Access to Multiple Features: The emergency response system not only allows you to contact emergency services but also enables you to take control of your home by opening or closing doors, turning on lights, and adjusting heating or cooling systems, particularly useful if you have mobility issues. With an emergency response system in place, your home can be ready for everything from fires to storms so you can feel safe and comfortable.
  • Increased Caretaker Efficiency: Caretakers are no longer forced to leave their charge to get help. If help is needed, caretakers can press a button that notifies emergency response staff that they need assistance. You save time that caregivers must leave their charge to get help, ultimately increasing efficiency and making a living in senior facilities safer.
  • Dependable Technology: Our emergency response systems run on a digital cellular system that gives you peace of mind knowing we can always reach you. With our intercom and motion detection capabilities, we can determine who needs assistance and get it to them immediately. You won’t have to worry about buying batteries or dealing with clunky equipment.

When Should You Consider Moving into a Retirement Community?

There’s no right age to move into a senior living community, but most people decide to do so when they need more care than their family can provide. Others may live independently with little assistance until illness or injury forces them to slow down or stop moving about freely. Either way, if you decide it’s time for you or your loved one to move into a senior living community in Sarasota, FL, we want you to feel safe and secure with our emergency response system.
