If you are at risk of falls and medical emergencies, Personal AlertSA could provide you with the subsidised purchase and monitoring of an approved personal alert system. Personal alert systems are devices that enable you to call for help in an emergency if you are unable to access or use a telephone. Using one of these devices can help you to live independently for longer.
