What is a PERS unit?
A PERS unit typically consists of a personal radio transmitter pendant and an automatic telephone dialer, typically located in an individual’s home.
How does a PERS unit work?
During an emergency situation the client presses his/her personal radio pendant which initiates a call to a central monitoring station. The monitoring station assesses the situation and sends help.
What are the benefits of a PERS unit?
PERS units provide users with freedom and comfort to move around in their own homes and with the knowledge that if help is ever needed it is only a button press away.
Why should a PERS unit be monitored by a 24-hour service centre and not just ring a pre-programmed number?
The use of 24-hour service centres guarantees immediate attention during any time of day.
Why should I look for a registered PERSA member provider when selecting a PERS service?
Dealing with registered PERSA members ensures that you are dealing with an organisation that has satisfied the strict criteria set forth by the Australian Government regarding PERS systems.
