Home Technology Solutions, Inc. provides personal emergency response services, as well as other adaptive home living technologies. In 1982, Dr. D. Cramer Reed realized what a vital service personal emergency response systems provide, and what that could mean to an individual wanting to remain independent within their own home. With Dr. Reed’s vision, the non-profit organization was established and has continued to grow and evolve throughout the years.
A Board of Trustees, comprised of local business and health professionals, governs the non-profit organization and is instrumental in establishing vision and direction for the organization. The team at HTS has numerous combined years of experience in the field of the aging population and is committed to providing the highest level of customer service when working with the subscriber and their family.
34 years later, Home Technology Solutions, Inc. continues to uphold the same mission imparted by Dr. Reed. Physicians, hospitals, other healthcare professionals as well as family and friends refer individuals on a daily basis, counting on the service to deliver help to the individual. Not only do subscribers depend on services, but family members, friends, neighbors and caregivers have peace of mind, knowing there is a system in place to get help when they are not available.
Around 1:30 AM on Saturday morning the 15th of August my mother Mary Ann slipped off the bed and couldn’t get up. It was the first time she has had occasion to use her [HTS] button and you responded immediately. 4 neighbors rushed to her aid. I just want to personally thank you on behalf of all my brothers and myself for the peace of mind that small button affords us.
God Bless each & everyone of you for the service you provide.
When my social worker told me that regardless of having diabetes, high blood pressure, and a history of falls, I thought (how wrong I was) that the doctors, pills, and checkups were all I needed.
I am a female, 73 years old, and I live alone. I have a wonderful caring son and daughter-in-law who live about 30 miles away. I am friends with all of my neighbors but I have always been very reluctant to depend on or burden anyone with my problems. I manage as best as I can.
It was quite a shock and surprise when last week I suddenly found myself shaking, light headed, and dizzy. I made my way to the living room using the walls for support. I began to feel very weak so I tried to make it over to the couch to rest awhile. I never made it. I tripped on the rug I had in the middle of the floor and fell to the floor. I landed on my left leg and I was in severe pain. I couldn’t get to my feet nor could I crawl to the phone, which was on the other side of the room.
Luckily, for my sake I was wearing the personal help button that [HTS] gave me last week. I pressed the button that I wore around my neck and was immediately calmer and my panic was gone. In a few minutes, paramedics were in my house and soon after I was taken to Wesley hospital.
Having the [HTS] system, that I didn’t want, saved my life! Without it I might have gone into shock and passed out and it would have been hours later that my neighbors or relatives would realize that I wasn’t answering my phone and something was wrong.
I would strongly recommend [HTS] to everyone regardless of thinking as I originally did, that I did not need the alarm button. I was wrong.
