Do you or someone you care about live alone and are you concerned about safety?  SAGE Eldercare is here to help.  SAGE Eldercare has recently partnered with LifeAid, a nationally recognized provider of at-home medical alert systems for only $20 per month.  Medical alert alarm systems are one of the most helpful tools in promoting independence for older adults while giving instant access to emergency assistance.

Some of the benefits to the LifeAid system are:

  • Provides long distance caregivers security and peace-of-mind
  • Easy to use; live help at the press of a button
  • Help is sent fast
  • Dedicated monitoring center to handle calls; two live people on hand per call
  • 24/7 emergency and technical support
  • 35 years in business with an A+ Better Business Bureau rating
  • Free activation; no start-up fees or deposit required
  • Free shipping of console and components
  • No contract; payment are monthly, quarterly or yearly
  • 30-day money-back guarantee; cancel at any time without penalties or fees
  • Works with 911 phone service
  • Back up battery for system lasts more than 24 hours
  • Free replacement on components
  • Pendant and wristband components are waterproof

The system comes with a home table top console and a help button with free neck pendant, wristband and belt clip attachments.  Optional wall help buttons are also available for an additional fee.  Once the service is installed, if an older adult needs medical help, they press the button on any of the devices and a care specialist is able to immediately address the situation.  A second care specialist will then notify the local EMS.  While the local EMS is contacted and dispatched, one of the care specialists stays on the line until help arrives.

SAGE’s partnership with LifeAid is an extension of SAGE Eldercare’s mission to help people remain independent in their own homes.  “We are so excited to be able to help set up this service regardless of where the person resides,” stated Julie Reich, Director of Special Programs for SAGE Eldercare.  “In the past, the cost of the system has been a barrier for seniors and we are hoping that the reduced rate will make the service more readily available for seniors and their caregivers.”
