Tight chest, rapid breathing, difficulty thinking and shaky hands are all common signs of a panic attack and add to this that you just had a fall or slip in the home where you live by yourself and the situation just got complicated. Trying to get help in these situations can be difficult and challenging with high emotions ranging from painful to scared, especially when you have to remember what numbers to dial in order to reach anyone.
This is why you need to have panic alarms in your house that only require the push of a single button to alert a response centre, family or friends to your need for assistance. The two-way communicator in the base station allows for conversation to flow back and forth so the individual can understand the situation and make a decision on the next step.
Medical alert systems are generally recognized as pendants worn around the neck or on the wrist but what happens if you forget to put it on that day? When you have extra panic alarms located in different rooms then you don’t have to worry about being tied down to a single accessory. The system will work the same no matter which button you hit and there is no room for error or having to think about what to do. It is a proven fact that patients who have suffered an accident feel safer and calmer once they realize that they are not alone and that help is on the way. Family members have greater peace of mind knowing that their elderly parents have access to emergency help any time of day or night without having to worry about whether the battery is charged or having to carry around a cell phone.
Get online and find a medical alert system that will work best for you and your family. There are several options to choose from including monitored with a monthly fee and a 24/7 dispatch centre, or unmonitored with no monthly fee and the system will automatically call preprogrammed numbers until it reaches someone. There is no reason to panic when you know that help is no farther than a push of the button on your panic alarm system.
