Like the crisis that ensues when roommates buy identical toothbrushes, a medical crisis demands a swift response. Give loved ones extra-strength at-home protection with today’s Groupon: for $58, you get a Direct Link Personal Emergency Response System installation and three months of in-home emergency monitoring from Home Helpers (a $155 value).
Home Helpers’ 24-hour, year-round emergency-response system unobtrusively safeguards older adults or physically impaired individuals living on their own. Seniors who need urgent help while home alone can press a single, clearly visible button on their Direct Link unit, which can be worn as a bracelet, pendant, or roguish eye patch. The device instantly alerts Home Helpers’ trained staff members, who quickly summon a family member, neighbor, or ambulance if needed. Direct Link also arrives loaded with every emergency contact number, and the waterproof button remains functional even during indoor monsoon season. A computerized medication timer spits out recommended doses at prescribed intervals, its microchip sorting multiple medications and outwitting larger, bullying supercomputers.
