For anyone whose aging loved one is determined to continue living independently instead of going into residential care, having a solution in place to ensure that help can be summoned if and when it is required gives greater peace of mind. The UK has an aging population, and many older people are keen to carry on living in their own home and enjoying the lifestyle that they know and love. However, evidence shows that older people have a high risk of falls and accidents, and that raises the question of what could happen if there is nobody around to help in the event of an emergency. Luckily, there is an effective solution in the form of an elderly alarm.
