Riverside Alert: 24/7 Medical Response System
Riverside Alert is a lightweight, easy-to-use, waterproof medical alert device and service that reduces the risks associated with living alone. If you need help, simply press your Personal Help Button and your "communicator" base connects directly to a professional response associate who will access your file and quickly assess the situation. If you are away from the base or unable to speak, help is dispatched to you immediately based on your personalized care plan. Experience caring, patient service while speaking with Riverside Alert during an emergency and know you're never truly alone. There's no equipment to buy, no long term obligation and one convenient monthly bill.
Medication Dispensing Service
Riverside's Medication Dispensing Service ensures a 98.6% compliance average nationally (based on Philips national research data), the highest of any medication dispensing service available today. This service is available to help you take the right medications at the right time. The dispensing unit can hold up to 60 doses of medications at one time, stored in covered pill cups. Your caregiver or a qualified Riverside home care nurse will periodically load the dispensing device, so all you need to worry about is listening for the voice announcement telling you when it's time to take your next dose. The service also has caregivers in mind —it alerts them if a dose is about to be missed and allows them to track compliance through a web-based program. This user-friendly, affordable system can save you and your loved ones from the dangerous results of missed medication and incorrect dosages. For information call toll free at 877-287-6061.
