Describe your company's current technology and solutions
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Bedford Medical Alert was already delivering full-service wearable monitored life-safety devices to minimize safety risks and isolation for seniors living alone. Now, our services are even more vital than before. Caregivers for seniors across Canada depend on our monitoring when they must quarantine themselves. Our team has in place practices to safely on-board new clients, which supports caregivers, healthcare organizations, and families. With our monitored life-safety devices in homes, visits from potentially infected caregivers can be reduced and safety increased.

The current pandemic has created a new need for screening for signs of infection. Bedford's experience in HD IP Video Camera Surveillance Systems is well suited to assist private and public organizations. Our thermographic video and analytics systems, which our company supplies, supports, and installs, allow us to assist clients in identifying individuals, even within a crowd or gathering, with fevers that are indicative of infection.

We are differentiated by advanced technologies delivered using best practices developed over three generations. Our services increase peace of mind, decrease caregiving costs, decrease healthcare costs, and decrease workplace absenteeism for caregivers. Through clinician education, we receive referrals from hospitals, LHINs, government support agencies, and others. We are supported by a technology infrastructure that has been developed over decades to provide tailored life-safety monitoring solutions.
