BUYING PERSONAL ALARMS FOR ELDERLY

Personal alarm technology is improving every day, offering users and their loved ones, more benefits than ever before. With this advancing technology, it is no wonder that elderly people are turning to personal alarms rather than moving out of their homes.Many elderly people do not feel ready for assisted living; they love their family home and want to maintain the freedom that comes with independent living. Living alone can however, be a source of worry for many edlerly Britons, as well as for their friends and relatives. 

In order to continue living unassisted, personal alarms for the elderly have become somewhat of a lifeline. By buying a personal alarm, friends and family members, as well as the user themselves, can rest easy knowing they are being looked after. The wearer is able to call for help at the push of a button. If you are unsure of where to buy personal alarms or which type of emergency alarm system is best for you, SureSafe has a wide range of alarms for senior citizens, to suit any need  or requirement.

How do personal alarms work?

Using either landline or mobile based technology personal alarms allow the wearer to request help in the event of an emergency. Landline based alarms, means that the landline telephone acts as the base unit for the alarm. If the user presses the emergency button on their bracelet or pendant, a signal will be sent to the base unit. This will instruct it to alert either a friend or family member, or the 24/7 monitoring centre, dependent on alarm model and settings specified at installation. Landline based alarms can only be used within the users property, as the button must be in range of the base unit in order to contact a responder. 

For those without landlines, or those wanting to maintain an active lifestyle outside of the home, a mobile alarm may be more appropriate. Operated in the same way as a landline alarm, when the user presses the emergency button, a nominated contact or monitoring centre is alerted. The only difference is that these alarms do not rely on a landline as the base unit so they can be used anywhere, at any time.

As SureSafe utilises the latest technology to extend and improve our offering, many of our alarms have added features and functionalities. For example some of our personal alarms come with automatic fall detection included. The alarm is able to sense most falling motions. An automatic alert will then be sent out in the same way, as if the user had pressed the button themselves. In addition to fall detection, our mobile alarms use GPS to provide text alert location details of the wearer, in emergency situations.

Why should you buy a personal alarm?

Personal alarms bring peace of mind to the family members of their ageing loved ones. Elderly people are able to live safe in the knowledge that help is just a button push away. Confidence is a huge factor in maintaining independent living, a SureSafe personal alarm may be the key to building this. Recent studies have shown that elderly people who remain in their own homes and active into old age, are happier and more able, meaning they are less likely to fall.

As a close friend or relative, the safety of your aging loved ones is a priority. With the ability to request help immediately, should they suffer a fall, illness or emergency situation, the severity of the injuries are much less likely to be increased by an extended period of time without aid.

SureSafe personal alarms are easy to set up and use; all of our alarms are self install to reduce costs. Due to this, they are affordable with options to suit almost any budget. We offer a wide range of alarms with different features, such as the ability to use outside of the home or even in the shower, so that the needs of any customer can be fulfilled.
