ADT Partners With Senior Helpers to Offer Aging in Place Safety Options
The companies want to provide safety and support for clients who require a caregiver but who also want the independence to live in their own home.
The collaboration will allow seniors more options to age in place, while providing additional safety and support, particularly when a caregiver is not present, according to an announcement.
The announcement cites research data by AARP that found more than 87% of Americans 65-years and older are looking for more options to age in place and maintain their current lifestyles. ADT’s partnership with Senior Helpers is said to provide clients with multiple program benefits, including:
- Added peace-of-mind for family and friends
- Medical alert monitoring that provides an additional layer of protection in the event of an emergency by contacting the customer and communicating with emergency services on their behalf if necessary
- Notifications to caregivers and designated family and friends in the event of a medical emergency and throughout the initial term of treatment until the customer is discharged
“Providing peace of mind for our clients is very important, and we believe that this service from ADT is one that many of our clients will find attractive,” states Peter Ross, CEO and co-founder of Senior Helpers.
Under the new partnership, Senior Helpers clients will receive preferred pricing for ADT medical alert systems, including Medical Alert Plus and On-The-Go units.
Medical Alert Plus provides a full in-home monitoring service which offers fall detection and home temperature monitoring, along with a wide monitoring range (600 feet from the base).
On-The-Go is a mobile option, offering flexibility for customers to leave their homes and still have monitoring and support when needed. The device has fall detection and GPS capabilities.
Landlines are not required for either service. The systems also provide families and caregivers with options to monitor their aging loved ones remotely, according to the announcement.
“Our partnership with Senior Helpers will help provide additional safety and support for its clients who require a caregiver but who also want the freedom and independence to live in their own home, maintain and enjoy their current lifestyle and stick to a budget with no long-term contract commitments,” says Jay Darfler, senior vice president of emerging markets at ADT.
