Press release from: Halo Monitoring

Huntsville, Al., December, 2010-Peace of mind and a new level of care is now available to seniors wishing to live at home where it is safe, comfortable and affordable, thanks to a partnership between Senior Helpers, a leading national in-home senior care provider, and Halo Monitoring, an aging-in-place technology company.

Halo Monitoring’s myHalo is now the exclusive Personnel Emergency Response Provider (PERS) of Senior Helpers Franchising, Inc. The myHalo automatic fall detection system will be available nationwide through all 300 Senior Helpers franchises. Senior Helpers chose the myHalo system because its advanced technology automatically detects a fall, without having to push a button. Halo Monitoring provides a comprehensive solution to the growing numbers of seniors who choose to age in the comfort of their own homes.

“Halo Monitoring is a leader in innovative, age-in-place technology for seniors, and the opportunity to partner with a company that has the reach and reputation of Senior Helpers is a great step for aging seniors living in their own home,” says Chris Otto, CEO of Halo Monitoring. “myHalo is a family’s first line of defense in monitoring the wellness of an aging parent. By working with Senior Helpers, families with aging parents can be assured help is always available and someone is always checking on their loved one.”

Through the use of a small, comfortable and wearable wireless device, the advanced myHalo system sends an automatic alert in the event of a fall. myHalo is also the first system of its kind that monitors heart rate and temperature allowing family members or designated caregivers, using a secure website, the ability to check on an elderly loved ones’ situation without invading a senior’s privacy.

“myHalo was chosen as the superior alternative to the outdated panic button devices because it brings automatic fall detection and home monitoring to Senior Helpers clients at home,” says Peter Ross, CEO of Senior Helpers. “We are combining the power of our National Franchisee Locations with the Halo Monitoring Authorized Dealer Agents to make it easy for families to have this amazing 24/7 coverage. Now when our caregiver isn’t scheduled to be in the home, myHalo is always on.”
