Companion for Life is a non-profit program of the Seniors Council of Santa Cruz and San Benito Counties. Our goal to provide a community based, low-cost personal emergency response system (PERS) in Santa Cruz and San Benito counties. A PERS summons help when an at-risk or older individual is unable to call for help themselves due to chronic or acute illness and physical barriers. This type of equipment provides continuous emotional support and continued independence to older and disabled individuals living in their homes by improving their safety and a sense of well being. It also provides family and friends peace of mind. Companion for Life is trusted by local healthcare professionals and in-home support agencies and is proud to be partnered with MEDICAL GUARDIAN.
