The Personal Alert Link (PAL) Medical Alarm

The PAL Medical Alarm helps mom maintain her independence while giving me the peace of mind knowing help is available at the push of a button!

People always tell us once they have experienced the safety and independence of the PAL Medical Alarm they can’t imagine life without it.

The fact is that the PAL Medical Alarm service will change life for the better. Before you talk with your loved one about The PAL, we suggest you become familiar with facts that can help to convince them to welcome a PAL system into their home.

The PAL is recommended by doctors, nurses and other professional caregivers. Professionals know that even a minor fall can have serious physical and psychological consequences if your loved one can’t get help in a hurry.

The PAL is much more than a medical alarm. Our friendly professional operators respond to all types of requests and have been trained to call emergency services including EMS, police or the fire department. If your loved one becomes scared or disoriented, our compassionate operators will call neighbors and/or relatives to check on them. If needed the operator will stay on the telephone until a familiar face arrives.

  • The PAL comforts caregivers knowing that help is a button press away. Tell your loved one that the PAL helps everyone who cares for them feel better knowing help is available with the press of a button.

  • PAL helps your loved one remain in your own home. The alternative to getting the PAL is often assisted living, a nursing home, or 24-hour care.

  • The PAL is a good idea even if your loved one doesn’t live alone. Accidents are unpredictable. They might need help when someone they live with is temporarily out of the house.

  • The PAL is non-intrusive. The PAL help button is very small, simple to use and won’t interfere with day-to-day activities.

  • The PAL is so little to pay for security and peace of mind. The cost is far less than paying an occasional home aide or companion service. The PAL operators are there 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
