Personal Alarm Elderly

More older people than ever before are keen to remain in their own homes for as long as possible however, maintaining an independent lifestyle can become more challenging as we age. Many families worry about the safety of their aging loved ones living alone. With concerns about what may happen, should they suffer a fall or accident with nobody around to help, personal alarms for the elderly are the ideal solution.

With the ability to summon help instantly, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, a personal alarm is the answer for those wishing to avoid going into residential care. As assistance is just the touch of a button away, both older users and their families can enjoy increased security and peace of mind.

How Does A Personal Alarm For Elderly People Work?

Personal alarms are primarily telephone-based pieces of equipment, made up of an alarm button and a base unit. The alarm button should be worn by the user and can be worn around the wrist or neck. This gives the wearer easy access to assistance regardless of their location within the home. Some options do however have a greater range, by employing different technology, and can be worn both in the garden and out and about.

If an emergency situation arises, the user presses the button located on their device which, in turn, immediately transmits a wireless signal to the base unit. The unit will then automatically dial a designated friend, family member or the 24/7 monitoring center, who are able to alert the emergency services should this be a necessary course of action. As a result of this, assistance can be obtained rapidly helping to ensure the continued safety of your loved ones.

A Landline Based Alarm

One type of personal alarm system is a landline based alarm. This type of alarm uses the homes’ landline telephone as the base unit, in order to summon help when needed. Perfect for those who spend the majority of their time indoors and want the additional assurance they will be looked after should they suffer an illness, fall or accident inside of their home. If the wearer presses the button located on their wrist or pendant alarm, transmitting a signal to the base unit, it will then dial a nominated contact, or the 24/7 monitoring centre, to alert them that the user is in need of aid.

Landline based alarms have limited reach and can only be used if the user remains within range of the base unit. This usually covers the whole house however cannot be guaranteed, dependent on the size of the property. Although this is the case with our landline based systems, SureSafe differs in the sense that for the majority of personal alarms, users must be near the base unit in order to talk. SureSafe pendant alarms on the other hand, allow the wearer to communicate with nominated contacts, or the monitoring centre, from anywhere in the house using our two-way communication technology.

A Mobile Technology Alarm

Some people may not have a landline telephone or may spend much of their time outside of the home. In such cases, a landline based alarm is unlikely to be suitable. The answer in this case may lie in a mobile technology-based personal alarm. This style of alarm uses GPS tracker technology to maintain the safety of the user whilst inside and away from the home. Employing our two-way communication technology, connecting the user to family and friends or to the 24hour monitoring centre, call and text alerts, ‘find me’ functionality and automatic fall detection; mobile alarms are perfect for those prone to wandering or those wanting to maintain an active lifestyle.

This solution gives the wearer complete confidence they can get help when out and about, should the need present itself. These no-landline alarms give the user and their family members greater peace of mind they will be safe, both in and outside of the home, allowing them to continue enjoying life without fear.
