Restore Peace of Mind with Elderly Alarm Devices
- December 18, 2014
Elderly alarm devices aren’t just for those who have disabilities or health conditions that might require more careful monitoring. They can be used to restore peace of mind for the families of an ageing parent, along with the individual who wants to maintain their freedom, although they might be aware of some of the potential issues associated with growing older or living alone.
No matter how good of shape you’re in, no one can be fully prepared for an emergency. This is especially true for the elderly who might be experiencing lack of strength or the inability to walk and use their limbs and fingers as they once used to.
In the event of an emergency, many ageing people don’t know who or how to call. If there’s not a phone in the same room as the one in which the accident occurs, the elderly individual is left waiting for someone to find them in their state of disarray. Don’t let this happen to you or your loved ones. It’s always best to play it safe and be prepared. Wearing a personal alarm system ensures you won’t be left in the dark should a traumatic situation occur.
Because a personal alarm system can be worn in the bath or the shower, there’s simply no reason you can’t keep it close, no matter where you go within your home, whether you’re lying in bed and hear a strange late-night knock at the door or you’ve fallen on the kitchen floor and can’t manage to get up. While these circumstances might not seem probable now, they almost always strike when you least expect it.
In addition to personal safety while you’re at home, there’s a health benefit in wearing elderly alarm devices. Sufferers of high blood pressure, diabetes, Alzheimer or heart conditions are ideal candidates for wearing a round-the-clock personal alarm system. When a medical condition becomes serious, you can press a button and alert all of the contact phone numbers that have been stored in the elderly alarm devices . This means you’ll have a list of phone numbers at hand that will be dialled at the press of a button. There’s no fumbling with phone keys, no trying to remember digits and no waiting to talk. Once the alarm goes off, your closest family and friends know it’s an emergency.
