Get the Facts
Home alert systems were first developed in Germany in the early 1970s. Inventor Wilhelm Hormann had the goal of developing new and comprehensive structures for ambulatory and non-ambulatory care. As a whole, home alert systems can allow users to lead a life of safety and independence in their own home with 24/7 emergency care.
Quality Living Medical Alert’s Personal Medical Alert and Emergency Response Services are for seniors, individuals who live alone, and those with active lifestyles. They also provide assistance for those who are physically challenged, disabled, visually impaired, those with limited mobility, and people recovering from major surgery, a fall, heart attack, or hip replacement.
Many people have pre or newly diagnosed medical conditions that require immediate medical attention such as epilepsy, seizures, strokes, or heart attacks. An emergency can happen to anyone at any time. If you are unable to reach a phone it could be hours or days before help arrives. With Quality Living Medical Alert, paramedics, police, fire department, or your friends and family will be there with just the push of a button.
