Overview

Personal Alert Victoria (PAV) is a personal monitoring and emergency response service that responds to calls for assistance and is funded by the Victorian Government through the Department of Human Services. PAV enhances the confidence of frail, older people and people with disabilities, who are isolated and vulnerable, to live independently in their own home by providing contact 24 hours a day.
