Medical Alarms and Personal Response Systems
A Medical Alarm/Personal Response System from INS LifeGuard is like having your own personal Nurse on-call whenever you need them. We help people to live more independent, active lives with greater confidence & peace of mind knowing that help is available at the press of a button, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our systems involve a console unit, a small radio transmitter, and professional monitoring provided by our emergency response centre, which is staffed exclusively by experienced Nurses.
When help is needed, the user simply presses the transmitter’s “Help” button, sending a radio signal to the console. The console unit is activated immediately and automatically sends an alarm through to our emergency response centre. Within seconds one of our experienced Nurses receives the signal and can instantly identify the person and review their medical history. They’ll speak to the person via two way speakerphone, determine the nature of the emergency and take appropriate action right away.
Whether that means calling a friend, family member or neighbour to assist, or sending emergency services, rest assured knowing help is on the way. Following an event, we track the person for reassurance, even through the health system (if an ambulance was called) until they are back at home.
LifeGuard service for a loved one
Caring for a family member or friend isn’t an easy thing these days. It can be hard to balance everyday commitments to work and family. You want to be there for your loved ones as much as possible, yet hour after hour of continuous care giving can lead to exhaustion and may actually put your loved one at risk.
Family members often live far apart, making it more difficult to provide care, and the cost of paying someone to watch your loved one can really add up, even if it’s only for a short time.
Life is unpredictable, and a call for help could be needed at any time. Begin protecting your loved ones and experience the comfort and peace of mind that comes from having an INS LifeGuard service.
