MED CHECK is one of the only products in our personal safety line that is designed specifically to remind people to take their prescribed medication. The service comes with many features that make it ideal for active seniors who need simple daily reminders to take their medication.
Our MED CHECK system will call your family member at designated times to remind them to take their medication. Calls can come in as often as required depending on how regularly prescribed medications need to be taken. There is no limit on how often our system can call your loved one. You or your loved one arranges the call frequency when you set up the service.
You do not need a smartphone
One of the benefits of using MED CHECK is that it works with all types of phones, except rotary models.
When our parents get older they may not want to adapt with the times and take on new technology. We have created our medication reminder system to work with smartphones, landlines, satellite phones and even flip phones. As long as the phone in question has a keypad, your loved one can use our MED CHECK program.
Simple entry of the number 1 will confirm that they have received the reminder notice. If the call goes unanswered a follow-up call happens 3 minutes later. If there is still no answer, an alarm is triggered in our Emergency Response Centre and one of our trained operators will intervene to determine what course of action is required.
Second and third calling
If a medication reminder is missed, the automated system will place a second call to your family member within three minutes. If the second call is missed as well, an alarm is triggered in our Emergency Monitoring Centre. Once this alarm is received, one of our operators will manually call your loved one. If that third call is missed, we will turn to the Alert Contact list provided by your family member so that we can contact you to let you know that a medication reminder was missed and that your loved one may require assistance.
No set-up fees
Like with all CHECKMATE products, MED CHECK has no registration or set-up fees. Also, we do not charge for false alarms, account maintenance or general customer service calls.
