PERS: Personal Emergency Response System

A Personal Emergency Response System (PERS) is an electronic device that is capable of being activated by a remote wireless device and enables individuals to secure help in an emergency. PERS electronically monitors individual’s safety in the home and provides access to emergency crisis intervention for medical or environmental emergencies through the provision of a two-way voice communication system that dials a 24-hour response or monitoring center upon activation via the individual’s home telephone line or other two way voice communication system.
