Who is Your In Case of an Emergency Contact?
Imagine you had an accident, a fall perhaps and need help in an emergency. How easy would it be for you or someone else to find your doctors’ phone number? Or your daughter’s mobile number? Or your medications, insurance details and Medicare number?
Our experience has shown many families don’t have this information and they may never have broached some of these subjects – so it can be a real problem sorting out affairs in the event of a medical emergency. At Home Instead we know open and informed communication amongst seniors and their family members can lead to positive experiences, in addition to averting crisis situations.
Home Instead has developed the In Case of Emergency App to help families and seniors share emergency contact information that is critical in the event of an accident, hospitalisation, illness or other emergency event.
The app allows for contact details to be added for as many individuals as desired including medical conditions, medical contacts, allergies, medications etc. for each individual. Once entered, this information can be readily accessed including automatic dialling functions to desired contacts.
