Helping Seniors and
Their Caregivers Since 1996

Jim and Lorraine Giles were once two busy entrepreneurs managing two separate businesses. When their fathers passed away, they were both tasked with looking after their mothers – neither of whom were willing to move away from their rural homes.

Necessity, as they say, is the mother of invention. That’s why Jim and a colleague worked together to create a communication system that would allow Jim to be alerted to their mother’s emergency needs. The device, which Jim and Lorraine named the Personal Emergency Response System (PERS), provided them with genuine peace of mind while preserving their mothers’ independence and quality of life.

Jim and Lorraine’s friends and neighbors soon adopted the PERS as well. In 1996 the Gileses incorporated PAL Medical Systems so they could share their life-saving technology with others throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin. In time PAL Medical Systems would develop other technologies for use at private residences and assisted living communities, including automated medication dispensers, medication lockboxes and fall prevention alarms.

While Jim has since gone on to eternal life, Lorraine and PAL Medical Systems’ professional team continue to support seniors and their caregivers by offering high-quality products and 24/7/365 emergency response services.

We are grateful for your interest in PAL Medical Systems, and welcome any opportunity to serve you or better explain how our products can help to prevent hospitalization and potentially fatal accidents. We hope to hear from you soon!
