Personal Alarms for the Elderly

At SureSafe we provide an extensive range of personal alarms for the elderly. These alarms allow our customers to remain in their homes, knowing that their alarm provides them with assistance at the push of a button. Our range of personal alarms for the elderly work via a telephone-based system, allowing the user to immediately call for help in the unfortunate event of an emergency. Our personal alarms for the elderly, provide peace of mind to not only to your loved one but yourself as well.

How do our personal alarms for the elderly work?

There are many different types of personal alarms for the elderly. For the most part, these are telephone-based equipment that consists of a base unit and remote alarm button, which is worn around either the neck or wrist. Pressing the button sends a wireless signal to the base unit, which then automatically calls either a 24/7 monitoring station or family and friends. Any of our personal alarms for the elderly offer instant assistance when it matters most.

Let’s look at the statistics on falls in the UK:

  • 1 in 2 over 65 years of age fall each year
  • 3 in 4 over 80 years of age fall each year
  • 47% of those falls result in the injured person needing assistance to get up
  • 76% result in admission to A&E and subsequent release
  • 24% result in admission to A&E and subsequent hospitalisation

Why are personal alarms for the elderly so important?

Studies in the UK show that the longer a person stays on the ground following a fall, the longer the length of their recovery time and the lesser the extent of their recovery. Getting immediate help after a fall increases the chance of a full recovery to 80%. Our personal alarms for the elderly provide immediate assistance and therefore can be a life-saving piece of equipment.

In addition to having the potentially life-saving benefit of being able to call for help, studies show that personal alarms for the elderly have positive health benefits too. As wearers feel more confident that they can get help if they need it, they tend to stay more active. When a person stays active their bodies remain more mobile and responsive, reducing the likelihood they will lose balance or strength. In effect, wearing an elderly panic alarm actually helps reduce the chance of a fall. And prevention is better than the cure, as they say…
