This page contains specific medical alert recommendations for a specific type of person: one that fits a “persona” we call the “24/7 Care” persona. These recommendations were updated in Dec. 2023.
The “24/7 Care” Persona. (Persona E)
As people’s condition declines, for many there comes a time when they require 24/7 care. For this persona, the individual has chosen to get that care in their home.
Medical Alerts for the “24/7 Care” Persona
The Big Picture
This person is rarely (never?) alone in the house. And if they need any sort of emergency alert, it most likely should call the 24/7 carer rather than a call center responder or 911 directly.
The requirements for a medical alert for this persona are quite different than for the other personas. In many ways, this is more like a “nurse call button” than a traditional medical alert.
We have decided we do not want to make specific recommendations at present for this persona. This is largely because we think the requirements vary enormously — depending on the exact caregiving situation, and on what types of care exactly the person needs.
Meanwhile, we recommend you either examine the recommendations for the other personas, and decide which are the best fit for your situation.
