GreatCall Adds 5Star Personal Security to Senior Services

GreatCall, the company that offers the JitterBug cell phones for seniors, has announced a new service that can help the elderly.

The 5Star Personal Security Service can transform a mobile phone for seniors into a personal security device for almost any situation. This service allows subscribers to immediately connect to a certified emergency response agent. This service is on for 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.

When a senior citizens calls, the emergency operator will arrange appropriate assistance, while providing real-time professional support.

Elderly users will not find it hard to use this service. The caller simply touches (5) and (*) on their Jitterbug phone to reach the emergency operator. The operator who receives the call will immediately know who the caller is, where they’re located using the latest GPS technology, and their personal profile. The 5Star Personal Security Service operator will determine the type of emergency, dispatch the appropriate assistance, or connect to 911 or family members for familiar support, while remaining on the line to ensure resolution. The operator will even place a follow-up call as the situation warrants.

This senior mobile phone service will become commercially available in February 2011 for $14.99 per month.
