Medical Alert Service

Emergency Response System

Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center offers unique systems (powered by Guardian Medical Monitoring) to allow you to live at home independently, while maintaining an immediate link to a call center. We understand that when there is an emergency, there is no room for error. Guardian Medical Monitoring has been providing safety and independence for clients for more than 80 years. At the push of a button, Guardian's trained operator communicates with the client, assesses their need, and calls for appropriate help - family, neighbors, or emergency personnel. These services operate in conjunction with your home or mobile telephone services and operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

How Do Personal Emergency Response Systems Work?

Each subscriber has a communicator unit attached to the telephone and a portable button that can be worn around the neck, on a wrist band, carried in the pocket, or attached to your clothing. At the first sign of trouble, you push the portable button. This automatically sends an electronic message through the telephone line to Lifeline Systems Call Center's Emergency Response Center where trained personnel immediately talk to you to determine the problem. If you are unable to communicate, our Response Center staff contacts responders whose names have been supplied by you. These responders are usually relatives, friends, or neighbors who live nearby and have a key to enter your home.

In addition to the list of responders, the Response Center staff has a brief medical history on you as well as the name of your doctor. They will contact the necessary parties such as police or ambulance as appropriate.

How Can Guardian Medical Monitoring Reassure My Family?

Guardian Medical Monitoring provides a large range of solutions to support your family in helping individuals remain safe, while offering peace of mind to caregivers. In addition to Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS), Guardian Medical Monitoring also offers specialized medication dispensers and fall sensors, offering complete solutions for those who wish to remain living at home while offering reassurance to family members even when they can't be there.

What is an Auto Fall Sensor?

Guardian Medical Monitoring with Auto Fall Sensor is for individuals who are high fall risk. Guardian offers fall detection pendants for both home-based systems (landline or cellular). The pendant must be worn as a necklace and can detect a fall based on high velocity movements towards the ground and the detection of sudden impact. The Guardian operator will know the activation resulted from a potential fall and help will be dispatched when appropriate.
