First Response Offers Online Program Educating Independent Seniors to Better Manage Their Personal Safety and Living Environment


Brewster, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/17/2014 -- First Response, a leading national provider of medical alert systems, is managing a nationwide initiative within the personal medical alarm industry by offering health and age-based at-risk communities with a comprehensive first alert program to better and more effectively manage their personal safety and home environment. This program is easily accessible to the public through the company’s website and toll-free reliable nationwide, live customer service center.

Scott Hazlewood, Director of Client Services & Support for First Response System states, “The cornerstone for an effective senior adult safety plan is a medical alarm system that monitors sudden accidents and then dispatches emergency responders to a user’s location quickly. Using this alarm system lays down the foundation necessary for at-risk individuals to integrate other key measures into creating a comprehensive, pro-active and solution-based safety plan.”

The online program consists of key elements and strategies that consumers will find immediately manageable and actionable. Features include a consumer checklist to choose the right system provider, as well as how personal medical alert systems work, the creation of a friends and family contact notification list, and executing and updating a personal medical data form. Other management techniques in the online program allow users to implement an indoor and outdoor home safety evaluation checklist, track key elements of an annual wellness exam, maintain strategies on how to effectively engage with primary physicians and caregivers, and retain resource materials for web-based health and wellness tools.

National statistics show that the majority of seniors (over the age of 65) have experienced a recent critical fall accident and, as a result, have been involved in subsequent recurring falls. Chronic ailments and managed medications only elevate these conditions. Until now, finding solutions and educational resources within a single source to address these challenges of aging-in-place have not been available, or at the very least hard to find. First Response presents a program that is convenient to access under one source and is formatted to be easily understood, and simple to activate.

Greg Ribaudo, General Manager of First Response and a respected medical alarm industry veteran, further explains, “Seniors and their caregivers must adopt a far-reaching safety plan that not only addresses the challenges and complications of aging and chronic disability, but serves to slow down this process through proper education and awareness, prevention, and effective medical monitoring devices. We feel our Personal Safety Program addresses all the key components to help preserve and maintain independence, mobility and safety for our seniors and individuals at-risk.”

As part of this online initiative to provide seniors and health care professionals alike with easy-to-access educational content, First Response has established a nationwide toll-free phone service to help guide these at-risk communities through consultations with live Medical Alert Specialists from the company. A “request for more information/brochure” submit button is also available on the company website to directly access and receive various documents of the personal safety program.
