Elderly Health & Careline Alarms
The population of the UK is ageing rapidly and in some cases, wellbeing is falling short. In the current climate, personal alarms for the elderly have become a necessity to help keep our ageing loved ones safe. Many elderly people want to remain in their own homes for as long as possible meaning there are a large number of elderly people living alone. Even if you live with your elderly loved ones, it is almost impossible to keep an eye on them at all times. It is also doubtful that your loved one would want to be constantly watched! A personal alarm helps elderly people to maintain their independence and privacy for as long as possible, whilst offering them the ability to gain assistance if necessary and protecting their wellbeing.
Careline Alarms – A Brief History
The origin of careline alarms can be traced back to the 1970s when Wilhelm Hormann of Germany developed a home medical alert system with a vision to help the elderly, the sick and the disabled. As the technology evolved, these careline alarms became smarter and more helpful.
In 1975, a telephone company offered an emergency phone system which helped a user to make several phone calls with just a button press, in case of an emergency. The system was offered with a pendant emergency button which could be pressed should the wearer fall, become ill or find themselves in an emergency situation. The phone would then dial a series of pre-programmed numbers in order to raise the alert. This was the first personal alarm system that resembled the personal alarms of today.
