An emergency call system, otherwise more commonly known as a medical alert system, is a device installed in the home to offer a quick and fuss-free way for older adults to get assistance in the case of an emergency. What classifies as an emergency that requires immediate response include falls, fire, or medical issues. This is a particularly useful function for older adults who live alone or have family members who are never at home much.
About Our Senior Living Emergency Call System
As our residents’ health and safety are our topmost priority, all the apartments in our independent living, assisted living, and SHINE® Memory Care communities are installed with emergency call systems. Before moving in, residents will be given transmitters to wear, which have a button that can alert our staff members. As these transmitters are designed to be worn anytime and anywhere, your loved ones can get help whenever it is necessary.
Benefits of Having a Senior Living Emergency Call System in Your Retirement Community
During aging, a number of health conditions arise, which can impede your loved ones’ everyday lives and prevent them from being fully independent. Daily tasks such as cooking, cleaning, and even just walking around the house can pose hazards that injure themselves. In more severe cases, heart attacks and strokes may even occur. Since we may never really know when these unfortunate events will happen, it’s best to ensure that your loved ones have access to help around the clock.
In addition, having an emergency call system eliminates the need for caregivers to constantly monitor their loved ones. This means that your loved ones can retain their privacy and go about their day freely. Our staff members can also have more time to concentrate on other matters that enable the community to operate efficiently.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Retirement Community?
One of the main reasons many family members decide to place their loved ones into a senior living community is to achieve peace of mind. Here, residents have 24/7 access to an on-site medical team, nurses, and caregivers. If an emergency occurs, your loved ones can alert for help straight away and receive the appropriate attention without having to leave the community.
Suppose your loved ones are unable to accomplish certain tasks by themselves, such as bathing and dressing, our caregivers are more than ready to jump in and provide assistance whenever necessary. With our host of amenities that include meals served at our Sensations restaurant three times a day, your loved ones do not even have to worry about day-to-day responsibilities, allowing them to entirely focus on getting healthy. At the end of the day, you and your family members can rest assured that your loved ones are living happily and safely in our community.
