Personal Emergency Response System (PERS)

This is a medical alert system that can help older adults have the confidence to continue living in their own homes. These devices are worn as a necklace or bracelet and alert others when the alert button is pressed.

The Ontario County Office for the Aging provides PERS units for people over the age 60. The program has no financial eligibility requirement; however, it is intended for those older adults who would otherwise be unable to afford a PERS unit. Call the Office for the Aging at (585) 396-4040 to determine if you are eligible. There are also several companies serving Ontario County provide PERS on a monthly fee basis.
