You never want to be caught in a situation where you require help and you are unable to call for assistance. When you are out and about during the day within the The Wellington Retirement Residence seniors community, you can rest assured that there is someone around in case of an emergency, but you might be wondering how you can receive assistance during the nighttime or when you are alone in your suite. This is where the portable medical alert system comes in handy.

A portable medical alert system provides security, safety, comfort, and a peace of mind to seniors that may suddenly have a fall or medical emergency at the Medicine Hat retirement community.
