Elders' Helpers

Elders' Helpers has been the sole provider of the Medication Management Program through Kent County Senior Millage since 2007. Through this program, Elders' Helpers' nurses make biweekly visits to residents' homes. During these visits, the nurses can (a) distribute medication into pill boxes, (b) reorder prescriptions or changes in prescriptions, (c) monitor vital signs, and (d) keep in contact with doctors and pharmacists to ensure proper medication management.

Personal Emergency Response System/Carelink

P.E.R.S. stands for Personal Emergency Response System, another service through Kent County Senior Millage. It is a help call button on a necklace or bracelet to notify emergency personnel in case of a fall or medical emergency. This system can help reduce time between an accident and a medical response. It can save lives, pain, and money. In less than a minute, the system's live operators are speaking with the home. Communication is carried through the base unit of this senior monitoring system. Help is dispatched and at your door quickly.
