Personal Panic Alarm
Older people and those who suffer from disabilities are at a greater risk of falls, accidents and emergencies, both at home and whilst out and about. A personal panic alarm is the best solution to ensure peace of mind and greater independence for both the user and their friends and family.
The UK’s population is aging, with more older people opting to live independently than ever before. Whereas in the past elderly people often moved in with their families or relocated to residential care homes, increasingly they are choosing to continue living in their own homes and maintain an active lifestyle, long into their old age. Although independence is something to be encouraged, it can raise its own issues. Many elderly people also may not have family members living nearby that are able to check in on them or assist them regularly. This can lead to problems should they suffer an accident or emergency either inside or outside of the home.
A personal panic alarm is designed to reduce these risks, making it easier for older people to live independently, even if they do not have friends or family close by. Easy to use and simple to set up, SureSafe alarms are discreet, portable and convenient. This ensures that those most at risk of injury are able to get help quickly, with very little effort required.
What Is A Personal Panic Alarm?
A personal panic alarm is, essentially, a simple button device which interacts with a base unit, allowing the user to summon help when needed. This interaction may take place through either a home telephone landline or via mobile technology.
The alarm is usually worn on a pendant around the neck or around the wrist on a band. Should the user suffer a fall, illness, injury or other problem, they are able to simply press the emergency button, this will trigger an alert which is then transmitted to either a designated friend or family member or to a 24/7 monitoring center. As a result of this, help can be on the way in just minutes. This quick response could be vital in the recovery of you or your loved ones. With over 50% of falls resulting in hospitalisation, in those over 65, a personal panic alarm could be essential in receiving much needed medical attention.
Will A Personal Panic Alarm Work While Outside The Home?
The majority of panic alarms are to be inside the home however, at SureSafe we offer a wide range of personal panic alarm solutions, some of which are suitable for use both inside and outside the home. As the number of older people wishing to continue enjoying an active lifestyle increases, further steps must be taken to protect them. Although, maintaining an active lifestyle has been proven to reduce the risk of falling in older people, it cannot be ignored that 50% of people over the age of 65 will fall at least once per year. This raises to a massive 75% in those aged over 80. Due to this, it is important to take precautions to ensure you or your elderly relatives and friends, receive the help they need. With a mobile ‘Go Anywhere’ personal panic alarm, elderly people can go out regularly, without the worry of what might happen in the event of an emergency.

This means they are suitable for use at any time and in any location. Using GPS technology, SureSafe mobile technology alarms have a unique ‘find me’ functionality, text alerts and two-way communication. They are lightweight, discreet and easy to wear; the perfect solution for added peace of mind and security, when outdoors as well as indoors.
