Peninsula Regional Medical Center announced on Monday, November 17, that it has become a certified Philips Lifeline GoSafe provider. GoSafe is a leading mobile medical alert service that is designed to help provide peace of mind to seniors at home or on the go.
Peninsula Regional Medical Center achieved certification through completing a comprehensive training curriculum and program offered by Philips Lifeline, the nation’s first medical alert service. Throughout the certification process, Peninsula Regional Medical Center demonstrated its knowledge of GoSafe and expertise in how the technology can help active, independent seniors live life to the fullest.
Featuring the power of up to six location technologies, GoSafe gives seniors the assurance to get up and go while being protected by Philips Lifeline’s 24/7, U.S.-based emergency call response center. GoSafe is the only mobile personal emergency response system (mPERS) to use this “hybrid” locating approach, which allows response center associates to locate seniors in need of assistance in areas where GPS may not be available. Additionally, GoSafe’s built-in AutoAlert fall detection technology can automatically call for help if it detects a fall, providing protection even if the senior is unable to call on their own.
GoSafe enables help to arrive when and where it is needed. The system uses an in-home communicator to optimize in-home performance, and the pendant can be charged while worn, providing continuous protection for the wearer.
“We’re proud to offer a service that empowers seniors to age safely and independently while providing their families with peace of mind,” said Bevereley Stoakley, Lifeline Manager for Peninsula Regional Medical Center. “By offering GoSafe, we can give seniors the confidence to stay active and on-the-go while keeping them connected to help if they need it. Peninsula Regional Medical Center considers senior health and wellbeing to be our first priority and we’re delighted that Philips Lifeline shares that mission.”
