Emergency Alert, Location Services and Telephone Reassurance

Emergency alert systems are devices, often in the form of a pendant or wrist unit, that can connect people to immediate help. They are ideal for individuals who live alone, are at risk for falling, or have serious medical concerns. Many of these services are privately paid; however, there are some community programs available to those with limited resources or who live in certain counties or towns.

For those with cognitive impairments, wandering or getting lost in familiar places can be a serious concern. Location systems help individuals with cognitive impairments stay safe and give their loved ones peace of mind.
