Houston, TX (PRWEB) January 30, 2014
One Call Alert, an industry leader in the personal emergency response system space, today announced the formation of a strategic affiliation with the Invisible Disabilities Association that will help raise awareness and funds for the non-profit organization. The mission of One Call Alert is to enhance the lives of their clients by providing a service that gives them the security and peace of mind necessary to live independently. The strategic affiliation forwards the mission by helping to fund programs that provide support for those with unseen chronic medical conditions; unseen chronic medical conditions that many One Call Alert clients suffer with every day.
“We care about our clients. Our emergency operators, our sales people, our care operators are on the phone with clients every day that are living with a chronic medical condition. This partnership offers us a way to give back and be a responsible partner in the community, but it also can help expand the services and support community many of our clients rely on,” said Justin Noland, Brand Director of One Call Alert, when asked what this affiliation means for One Call Alert, “IDA reaches out and touches a huge number of communities. There are hundreds of invisible disabilities from PTSD to diabetes to rheumatoid arthritis to fibromyalgia to multiple sclerosis, the Invisible Disabilities Association is there to provide support and we’re proud to be a part of that.”
Unlike organizations that pertain to just one condition, the term “invisible disabilities” covers hundreds. Therefore, the Invisible Disabilities Association does not attempt to supply a vast amount of detailed information for every diagnosis. Instead, the Invisible Disabilities Association’s website, publications, seminars and awareness address all debilitating conditions that are often misunderstood. The Invisible Disabilities Association encourages, educates and connects people and organizations touched by illness, pain and disability around the globe.
“What moved me to launch IDA was my desire to care for others. People who live with an invisible disability oftentimes become part of the shadows. They need care which can be defined as “health, welfare, maintenance and protection.” But sometimes caring can be hard to come by. Many times a person living with illness ends up all alone because of being misunderstood and disregarded due to the invisible nature of their illness and pain. They need help and I believe One Call Alert provides a solution of caring amidst the isolation,” said Wayne Connell, Founder & President of the Invisible Disabilities Association, in a statement announcing the partnership.
