About the Company

SeaCure Solutions derives its name from our coastal surrounding and commitment to peace of mind through safety and security initiatives. The company specializes in Personal Emergency Response Systems, also known as Medical Alert Devices and other risk management strategies to support senior populations, lone workers such as realtors, children, and anyone with special needs. Medical alert systems cost less than $1.00 a day and can be covered in part by Medicaid and/or medical insurance.

So, what is a medical alert or PERS device?

The Delaware Health and Social Services Division of Aging and Adults with Physical Disabilities describes a personal emergency response system or PERS as a device that allows a person at risk to get immediate help in the event of an emergency. A PERS or medical alert device is monitored by care specialists with knowledge of the client’s name, location, medical history, family contacts and practical details such as pets and how to access the residence. A PERS device with fall-detection can notify the monitoring center in the event of a fall, even if the client cannot press the emergency button. A mobile PERS with GPS can track the client to monitor their location. Emergency medical services are immediately dispatched to the client’s location when they need help.

Who should wear a PERS device?

According to the Centers for Disease Control, chronic conditions such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes are the leading cause of death and disability in the United States. Six in ten adults in the U.S. have a chronic disease and four in ten adults have two or more. According to the National Council on Aging, falls are the leading cause of fatal injury and the most common cause of nonfatal trauma-related hospital admissions among older adults. Additional findings show that:

-Every second of every day in the U.S. an older adult (age 65+) falls

-Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall

-Every 19 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall

-A full 80% of falls among seniros occur in the bathroom

-The average cost for treating a fall exceeds $30,000

Simply put, a medical alert device can provide safety, independence and peace of mind to anyone who lives alone, is vulnerable to falls, or has been diagnosed with a serious medical condition.
