An OAP alarm gives elderly people added protection against the dangers of being left without medical attention for too long after a fall or other event. Personal alarms, panic buttons and talking pendants all act to ensure that our elderly loved ones are well taken care of without having to be watched around the clock.
It’s proven that the extra security from an OAP alarm gives them more confidence and can make them happier, healthier and have a more fulfilling time during their golden years, with some alarm systems offering much more independence.
Types of OAP Alarm
There are several different types of OAP alarm to suit a range of different situations and personal needs. Each one aims to protect from sustained and long-lasting injury due to slow responses after a fall, or from being left unattended after a medical event for too long.
A fall alarm is one of the most innovative and lifesaving personal OAP alarms we have here at SureSafe. The fall alarm automatically detects when the wearer has fallen and sends a signal so that assistance can be immediately given.
This alarm is great for those who experience falls or medical events, such as hearts attacks or stroke, that would mean they can’t press a button. The sensors do all the work for them.
The talking pendant OAP alarm allows the wearer to talk to our response centre 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from anywhere in their home or garden. This fabulous technology means that we can communicate directly using two-way communication to properly asses a situation and act appropriately
An anywhere alarm doesn’t use a traditional landline connection, so it doesn’t need to be connected to a base unit that only allows it to be used within the home. The wearer can go about their lives, visit friends, go to social events or walk the dog all with the complete peace of mind that if something were to happen, the alarm would still work to send a signal and get them the help they need.
