  • Do you have pets at home?

    Pets are known as beloved companions that provide entertainment, company, and in some cases, protection. Outside of these common pet characteristics, are benefits that can enhance any senior’s lifestyle and well-being. For a senior, a pet can help reduce stress, lower blood pressure, ease loneliness, and in some cases increase physical activity. For example, by owning a dog, physical activity and social interactions may increase from active dog walking and conversations with other pet owners.

It's simple. Press a button, speak with an emergency operator & help is on the way.
