Connected to care

According to demographic data from the U.S. Census Bureau, 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 every day in America. As they age, they want to continue to lead the active, independent lives they’ve always known. With 33% of people over 65 suffering a fall each year , balancing the need for independence with the ability to get help in an emergency is a concern—for older adults, their families, and their caregivers.

The Intel-GE Care Innovations™ Link Personal Response System is designed for older adults who want to maintain active lifestyles while living in their own home or in independent living communities. It combines a personal help button—worn on the wrist, around the neck, or on a belt clip—with a home base station. At the push of a button, Care Innovations™ Link connects users to a 24-hour emergency Response Center, where they can speak with a caring staff member who already knows their name, address, and other vital information.

Setup is simple and intuitive. The Link home base station connects to the main phone line, just like an answering machine. The personal help button automatically syncs to the home base. With a range that covers the average residence, the personal help button can be worn anywhere in the house, is waterproof  and is designed to be worn in the shower or bath.

A button push is all it takes to activate the system. The Link personal help button connects to the home base station, which automatically calls the 24x7 Response Center. The powerful, two-way voice home base connects with the Response Center enabling a conversation between the user and the trained operator.

Active. Independent. In control. The Link Personal Response System enables seniors to live on their own, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing emergency help is available at the push of button.
