How is HomeEXCEPT different from a wearable medical alert?
HomeEXCEPT works 24/7 in the home whether it’s with the user or not. You automatically get alerts when there is a change in the activities of daily living. You can check in on activity at any time. [Learn More]
Who monitors the alerts?
You and the people you authorize as guests. We call this the "Circle of Care". When anyone deals with an alert you will see it has been taken care of. Alerts can be delivered on your mobile device or through SMS.
What do I do with an alert?
Depending on the type of alert someone may need to respond to an urgent situation. Alerts also make you aware of important changes to mobility, medications, assists, sleep and toileting. These alerts help to identify and prevent risk.
