Personal Emergency Response System (PERS)

24/7 emergency and concierge services at the press of a button

What is PERS?

PERS is a personal emergency response system that enable subscribers to summon help quickly in the event of an emergency. PERS gives many people the confidence and freedom to live independently, knowing they can get help whenever they need it.

  • How does PERS work?
    • A speaker box is connected to a phone line or cellular network and the subscriber wears a waterproof help button.
    • When the personal help button is pressed, the communicator automatically signals the PERS Response Center.
    • Trained staff are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to immediately telephone the subscriber and offer assistance. If the subscriber is unable to answer or needs further help, the PERS Response Center will contact a friend, neighbor or relative who has been previously designated as a "responder" or local community emergency services to check on the subscriber.
  • What is PERS with Auto Alert?

    Henry Ford e-Home Care’s PERS with AutoAlert® offers an additional layer of protection by automatically placing a call for help when you’re unable to. The AutoAlert Help Button works in conjunction with a compatible PERS Communicator. If you fall and can’t get up or are unable to push your help button, AutoAlert will automatically transmit a signal to the communicator who will then call the PERS Response Center for help.

    This feature could be lifesaving for subscribers who are unable to request help because of disorientation or unconsciousness.
