Introducing PAX Plus: Mobile + Home Fall Detection System

Nancy was in a tough spot. Her mother, Phyllis, fell a week after her milestone 80th birthday. Her fall landed her in the hospital with a wrist sprain and a bruised hip. Nancy’s worries about her mom’s ability to safely age in place were growing. Phyllis needed monitoring in her day-to-day life. But, Phyllis wasn’t quite ready to give up her independence. They needed a solution that offered Nancy peace of mind while respecting Phyllis’ independence.

Initially, Nancy considered moving Phyllis into an assisted living facility. Naturally, Phyllis resisted— there were many activities she wasn’t ready to give up yet. Her daily walk with her neighbor, a ritual for over 10 years, was a big one. She also enjoyed picking fresh produce at her local farmers’ market on Sundays and gardening. Not to mention, she loves her house and has called it home for over 40 years. Living independently was something Phyllis was proud of. With this in mind, Nancy took to the internet to find a solution. 

As Nancy researched their options, she learned about Alert1. Relating to our mission to help senior Americans age in place, she wanted to know more. On our website, she found the latest Alert1 product, the PAX Plus. It was a perfect fit. Within a few days, Phyllis received her new system and fell in love with it. Finally, Nancy is able to relax and have the peace of mind that her mother is staying safe.

It’s easy for Phyllis to add any piece of her system to her ensemble. With PAX Plus’s gray, black and white design colors, the pendants go with everything!  Her PAX Plus system offers a variety of different ways to wear it. This keeps help close, but her devices discreet. No one ever notices she’s wearing a medical alert device. 

PAX Plus is the most compact and portable system available. The device is an industry leader with built-in GPS location technology. This means Nancy doesn’t have to worry about help finding her mom. And Phyllis loves that she doesn't have to carry around a bulky device.

These are Phyllis’ favorite features of her new PAX Plus:

  • She can shower with her device on. She knows that showers are the #1 place for senior falls, so this eases her fears of falling in the shower. 
  • The 24/7 fall detection monitoring allows her to live without worry. She no longer fears a fall going undetected. She can keep up with her walks, gardening and so much more!
  • If she needs to push her button, the built-in microphone allows 2-way communication. She can speak with the Alert1 Command Center right from her device. 
  • Her mobile + home system arrived activated. All it needed was a quick charge and it was ready to use.

In the past, Nancy didn’t know how to talk to Phyllis about medical alerts. After her latest fall, it became an important conversation to have.

With Alert1, Nancy was able to learn about the different medical alerts and choose the best one to fit Phyllis’ lifestyle. Now they’re both happy because of the peace of mind and ensured safety that Phyllis has with her new PAX Plus mobile + home fall detection system.
