During an emergency situation it is difficult to think, function and remember what to do regardless of your age. As a senior citizen it can be even more challenging when you are alone and worrying about how you are going to get help when you are injured. This is why medical alert companies have come up with a system that puts help a button press away, giving seniors and their families peace of mind all the time.

Panic alarms for the elderly can be easily worn around the neck as a pendant or on the wrist as a watch where the individual simply has to click the button and assistance is immediately on the line. New technology has replaced the old systems where you had to be near the base station in order to have a two-way conversation. Nowadays you can get systems that are fully mobile and give you the same protection a traditional system gives, anywhere you go e.g. the shops or on a walk.

There are usually two different types of systems to choose from based on your comfort level and budget. The first system has the panic alarm linked directly to a monitoring center that can call for help as the button is pushed and speak with the user until help arrives. This requires a low monthly fee plus the equipment usually has a lifetime warranty. The other system is less complex and only requires the initial payment for the equipment without any ongoing fees. The alarm is linked to a group of family and friends numbers that are determined and programmed by the user so when the button is pushed then the system calls the first number on the list. It continues this until it reaches someone who can speak with the elderly individual and determine what needs to be done.

No matter which option you select the goal is to give your loved one the independence and security they need while giving you peace of mind that they can reach someone easily in an emergency. Panic alarms for the elderly remove the guess work and thinking out of the equation and give the responsibility to someone who can work through it calmly and effectively to achieve a satisfactory resolution.
