Personal Alarms for the Elderly Promoted By Action on Elder Abuse
- December 9, 2014
SureSafe Alarms has partnered with Action on Elder Abuse (AEA). AEA are a UK charity fighting against all forms of abuse of the elderly.
AEA formed as a charity in 1993. Their goal is to eradicate all forms of abuse against the elderly. Abuse can be physical, emotional and/or financial. AEA are the only charity whose sole priority is challenging abuse of elderly Britons. Please see www.elderabuse.org.uk for more details.
AEA work towards their goal in many ways. They run a confidential helpline for victims. They run buddying initiatives with those at risk. They also lobby the government for improved protection. AEA recognise that technology can help those at risk. They support the use of Telecare and personal alarms.
Traditionally used to protect people at risk of falling or sudden illness, they also offer other benefits. Victims of abuse, especially those experiencing it in their own homes can lose confidence. Personal alarms can be a vital link to the outside world for people in danger. This can have a significant positive improvement to the independence, well-being and quality of life of the user. When emergency calls are directed to friends and family telephone numbers this can give even more comfort and reassurance.
How do elderly alarms help people at risk?
The SureSafe Personal Emergency Response System is the perfect solution. It is a non-monitored alarm that is programmed to call friends and family in the event of an emergency. The user wears an alarm pendant and pushes it should they fall, feels unwell or some other emergency. This alerts their emergency contacts who can come to their assistance.

SureSafe takes its role in the community seriously. We like to give back to the people that we serve. As part of this commitment we will contribute 5% of all sales to AEA. In purchasing a SureSafe Alarm you will be helping to combat elder abuse in the UK.
The AEA SureSafe Alarm is now also available from the AEA website by clicking here. 20% of all sales on the AEA site will go towards continuing the fight against elder abuse.
SureSafe and AEA thank you for your support for this great cause.
