PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Medical Guardian™, a leading provider of Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS), today announced Family Guardian, an advanced in-home system that allows caregivers to monitor seniors from afar, is available for pre-order now. In addition to the suite of customizable devices, Family Guardian is compatible with the new Family Guardian Monitoring app. Together, Family Guardian and the Family Guardian Monitoring app give families the freedom to choose the best options for their loved one based on individual habits and behavior.
“Family Guardian brings flexibility to caregivers and maintains independence for seniors,” said Geoff Gross, Medical Guardian CEO. “Our mission remains to keep seniors safe. We’re also committed to helping caregivers take a proactive approach to caring for their loved ones. Medical Guardian is leading the next phase of in-home care through the addition of the PERS industry’s most cutting-edge technology and real-time access from Family Guardian and the Family Guardian Monitoring app.”
The Family Guardian package will include multiple layers of coverage to keep seniors safe when caregivers are away. The Main Door Contact Sensor is placed at the main entrance of the senior’s home and monitors if the senior is inside or outside the home. Two Activity Sensors, each placed in the bathroom and kitchen, monitor the motions of the senior while going about their daily routine. Each in-home sensor sends alerts regarding activity levels to the designated caregiver via web, email, or SMS notifications throughout the day. The Emergency Help Button puts seniors that live alone at ease knowing in case of an emergency, such as fire or flood, they will be taken care of immediately.
The Activity Sensors and Main Door Contact Sensor deliver real-time visuals accessible through the app from multiple devices. The app tunes in to data collected by each in-home sensor and summarizes activity in a daily index. In the event of hazardous or worsening health scenarios, automatic alerts are sent directly to a mobile device, giving caregivers peace of mind knowing the safety of their loved one can be monitored at the touch of a button 24/7.
Like each Medical Guardian product, Family Guardian is protected under the standard guarantee of reliability, simplicity, and affordability. Family Guardian is available for pre-order now through Medical Guardian’s website. For more information or to pre-order Family Guardian visit www.medicalguardian.com/family-guardian-preorder.
