What is a PERS?

PERS Explained

As we age, everyday activities can become dangerous. You can fall going up or down stairs, trip on a crack in the sidewalk, or get knocked over by a pet. These things can result in significant personal injury. Unfortunately, someone may not always be around you when an emergency happens. Thankfully, there are small, wearable devices that you can wear to alert others to the fact that you need some medical assistance.


PERS or personal emergency response systems are wearable devices that allow you to easily call for help. You likely have seen ads for Life Alert and their famous “Help, I’ve fallen and can’t get up” commercial. That is a prime example of a PERS. These are always recommended for our clients to help ensure that they receive emergency assistance when they need it, especially when a home health aide or family member is not present with them.
