A Resilient community is one which can care for those within it in the first instance. If you are not a hermit you will have connections with others. As well as family and friends there are those who you may know through community or faith groups and those who happen to live close by.
Many of us are willing to help but, for better or worse, we no longer live in the days where the door is on a latch and we can drop in to make sure members of our community are OK. If someone is isolated and needs need help the Assure ensures that help can be called, just when it is needed.
The Assure lets you know when someone you have agreed to look out for needs help, how to get to them (address and access information or where they are if they are away from home and using our smartphone app) and any first response information such as medication or who to call.
If you don’t have people who are available to you, or perhaps too few, there may be organisations in your area which can help.
Is there someone you care for? Would you like to know that they are OK?
The Assure personal monitoring smartband constantly monitors activity and, once configured, you can securely logon to My Acticheck and check that the smartband is being worn and see a history of activity over the previous seven days. The smartband monitors unusual activity and has a fall detection sensor which if anything is detected raises the alarm to alert the designated responders for help. Wellness checks can be set to buzz once or more a day on the wearable personal monitoring wristband, which requires just a pressing of a button to confirm all is well. If the elderly patient or the person you care for needs immediate or emergency help all they need to do is simply squeeze the wristband to raise the alarm. The Assure personal alert system gives peace of mind both to carers and the cared for.
You can also see a full history of who responded to any requests for help with contact details so you can contact them for more information.
