MobileHelp® Announces New Initiative with the Volen Center

August 26, 2016

In celebration of ten years in business, local company works to give back

BOCA RATON, Fla. – August 26, 2016 – MobileHelp®, a leader in mobile Personal Emergency Response Systems (mPERS) and health management solutions, today announced the creation of a new local program with the Volen Center, designed to provide at-risk seniors with access to emergency help.

 

“Ten years ago, we started a company that was based on the idea that access to emergency help should not be limited to the four walls of a person’s home,” said Rob Flippo, CEO and co-founder of MobileHelp. “The locally-operated Volen Center has grown under much the same ideals: that by supporting the lives of our community members as they reach their golden years, we strengthen the community as a whole.”

 

To that end, MobileHelp is partnering with the Volen Center to launch an initiative that will provide both medical alert equipment and service free of charge to older adults who could benefit from access to emergency help, but who are not able to afford a subscription service.

 

 

“Connecting our older citizens with the assistance they need to live the lives of their choosing is our mission,” said Robin Goldberg, Director of Special Events and Donor Relations for the Volen Center. “We look forward to the work we can do with MobileHelp to provide our members with a new solution to support their lives.”


MobileHelp will initially present the Volen Center with ten of its SOLO systems at its anniversary celebration this afternoon. The Volen Center will then be able to distribute the devices to its members, and MobileHelp will work with them to designate the right level of emergency service monitoring for each member.


“We are honored to partner with the Volen Center and to support the critical work they do within our community,” said Mr. Flippo. “We look forward to an ongoing relationship with them as we continue to grow.”
