No one wants to leave the comfort and familiarity of their own home. But sometimes, living alone presents risks that can concern both you and your family. Are you prone to falls? If you needed to get out of the house quickly, would you need some help? Direct Link helps to eliminate these worries.

Any time you need help, Direct Link is as close as your fingertip. Simply push the button on your wrist band or neck cord, and our trained staff will have help on the way.

24/7 Monitoring

Whether it’s dinner time or 2 a.m., you can get the help you need. Direct Link Personal Emergency Response Systems are monitored 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. When you need help, simply press the button, worn around the neck or on the wrist. Your information appears immediately on the computer screen of our monitoring staff. Our staff will contact you through the 2-way speaker and await your instructions.

You can instruct us to:

  • Have a neighbor check in on you

  • Dispatch an ambulance

  • Notify a family member of your situation

  • Summon the police or fire department

With Direct Link, you and your loved ones will enjoy peace of mind. The cost is very affordable, at about a dollar a day. Best of all, it is available on a monthly basis. No equipment to buy. No long-term commitments or obligations. And, it is personally installed and maintained by our office.

Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS)


Seniors who have a personal emergency response system remain independent – and in the comfort of their own home – longer than those who do not, and research shows getting help within the first four hours of a fall can dramatically reduce the severity and effects.* Having a PERS boosts independence, safety, and self-confidence – all at the touch of a button.

Automated Medication Dispenser


Did you know approximately 20% of seniors are taking as many as 50 prescriptions every year?** That’s a lot to manage, even for the most organized of us. And it’s critical to be precise when it comes to your prescriptions. Direct Link’s automated medication dispenser is a simple, affordable, and reliable medical alert system solution for managing multiple medications safely and effectively.

Vital Signs Monitoring


We’ve all heard the saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” But regularly monitoring chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, congestive heart failure, hypertension and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) really can keep the doctor away, saving time and money while preventing unnecessary ER and hospital visits. All in the comfort of home.
