    Presentation of Help Button Social Service project (Alarm Button) (3,8 Мб , pdf)


    Help Button (Alarm Button) is a unique project, involving medical, social, emergency and personal care service intended for provision of a range of services to the disabled, sick, single and senior people.

    Our project aims to help both children living apart from elderly parents, and parents whose children are left home alone when adults are at work.

    In fact, the services rendered by our social service are oriented towards a wider range of customers. We have analyzed the market of similar services and have found out that the services of Help Button social service are intended for all people in need of care in view of age, health or other circumstances:

    • elderly people (over 17% of population),
    • the disabled (9.5% of population),
    • people with grave diseases and injuries,
    • pregnant women and women with children of tender years (about 5% of population),
    • single people (over 7% of population).

    Similar social projects named Alarm Button are successfully implemented in St. Petersburg and Ulyanovsk.

    The distinctive feature of our project is that in addition to the health and social services and emergency calls, we offer an expanded range of services, which also includes household and socio-cultural services, which are also of a great importance for social adaptation of persons with disabilities, the elderly and single people.

    The project brings the following benefits to the people:

    • simple and convenient service system – all services can be obtained by pressing a button;
    • security – permanent presence of an experienced expert compensates for a sense of desolation and reduces anxiety. Besides, Help Button makes it possible for the relatives, who stay far, to disburden some care for their loved ones upon professionals;
    • mobility – Help Button enables a user to maintain an active lifestyle, to feel calm and safe 24 hours a day, 365 days a year;
    • alternative to the hospitals – Help Button makes it possible to preserve usual home environment for those in need of permanent care without placing them in hospitals, which favorably affects their well-being and is an important factor of social adaptation;
    • professionalism – wide range of professional consultants;
    • wide range of services – the users get a wide range of services in one place – from medical or social advising to household and leisure assistance;

    region/city gets the following benefits:

    • absolutely new technology, which contributes to establishing a socially comfortable environment for the single and elderly people and the disabled;
    • reduction of budget expenses due to decrease in the number of hospital patients;
    • reduction of the load on emergency services by reducing the number of false calls to the emergency;
    • development of other socially important projects and service (social taxi, social counselor, nursing service, etc.);
    • generation of objective statistical data on the needs of the elderly people and the disabled, which enables to improve social infrastructure;

     and finally:

    creation of a social image of the region/city and increase in people’s satisfaction with the social sphere of the region/city as a whole.
