What is it?

The Personal Emergency Response System (PERS) is an incredible tool to provide peace of mind for loved ones who spend time alone in their homes. In the case of an emergency, a senior can push a button to summon help. The button may be worn as a pendant or as a bracelet.

In 2022: We now partner with Medical Guardian to provide this service to Clay County older adults who live in their own homes. Residents age 60+ must call Clay County Senior Services to receive discounted costs: 816-455-4800.
