Alarm Button for Elderly
Providing an alarm button for elderly loved ones can help those living alone to feel safer and more secure by providing contact to the outside world in the event of an emergency. They can help older and less abled people to feel safer at home, and to remain independent for longer. When faced with an emergency like a fall, losing consciousness or having a stroke, a mobile phone isn’t always within reach to call for help. A personal alarm button for elderly loved ones can provide a life-changing solution.
Why do you need an alarm button for elderly loved ones?
If your elderly loved one lives alone, it is important to ensure they are able to gain assistance quickly. The UK has an aging population and the elderly are continuing to live longer thanks to medical breakthroughs. They are more active and more independent than ever before, with many living alone. Living alone can place elderly, disabled and vulnerable people at risk, especially if prone to falls. 51% of people over the age of 75 live alone, and nearly 1 in 2 over the age of 80 will suffer a serious fall this year (Campaign To End Loneliness).
It is vital that in the event of an emergency, they have a way to call for help. When faced with a fall, loss of consciousness or a stroke, using a mobile phone isn’t always a viable option. A personal alarm button for elderly loved ones can provide a life-changing solution.

Alarm buttons: how do they work?
Most emergency alarms utilise telephone-based technology and consist of a base unit and a remote alarm button. The alarm button is worn around either the neck or wrist and in the event of an emergency, the user can press the emergency button in order to request assistance. On pressing it, a wireless signal is transmitted to the base unit; which will then automatically alert a monitoring centre or a predetermined, designated contact.
By choosing any of our personal alarms, we are able to offer wearers instant assistance when it matters most, and friends and family peace of mind knowing that should your loved one have an emergency, they are receiving the help they need.
