How do Personal Alarm Systems for the Elderly Work?
Our personal alarm devices for the elderly work via a telephone-based system, allowing the user to immediately call for help in the event of an emergency. The user wears the alarm pendant around their neck; the pendant contains an emergency button which allows the wearer to call for help should they fall, feel unwell or require assistance. Many of our personal alarm systems also include automatic fall detection to ensure assistance can be gained even if the user is unconscious and unable to press the emergency button themselves.
In order to send out the alert, the personal alarm system is linked to a base unit; this base unit is usually the telephone landline in the home. We do however offer wearable alert devices which utilise mobile technology in order to allow the alarm to be used both inside and outside of the home. Mobile alarms are ideal for elderly people who wish to stay active and are often away from the house. Nevertheless, in both mobile and landline alarms, the result is the same. When the alarm button is pressed it activates the base unit, this in turn alerts a designated responder (usually a friend or family member), or alerts the SureSafe 24/7 response centre, who will be able to arrange the necessary assistance immediately.

The Benefits of a Personal Alarm Device for the Elderly
Personal alarm devices for the elderly have a wide range of benefits. The first and arguably most important benefit is helping to prevent sustained and more severe injuries. Studies in the UK have shown that the longer a person stays on the ground following a fall, the longer the recovery time will be. Lying on the floor with an injury for a prolonged period of time can result in further health complications, often causing lifelong ailments. This highlights one of the main benefits of personal alarms for the elderly. They allow immediate help to be requested. Studies also show that by gaining help immediately, the chance of making a full recovery increases to 80%. This shows how neck alarms for the elderly can be potentially life-saving devices in the event of an emergency.
In addition to this, wearable alert devices can help to reduce both worry and risk. It has been shown that those who are less confident and worry more about injuring themselves are more likely to. This is because they may be less keen to move around in fear of falling, however reducing movement also reduces mobility making falling more likely. Confidence is therefore key in helping to protect your elderly loved ones living alone. A wearable alert device for the elderly can be paramount in helping to restore this confidence, knowing that assistance is just the press of a button away.
Here at SureSafe, we offer a range of wearable alert devices for the elderly that can help individuals to live worry-free in the safety of their home whilst providing comfort and peace of mind for friends and loved ones. They help elderly people to maintain independence for longer and live a more fulfilling lifestyle.

We called SureSafe and spoke with Richard who was extremely helpful and patient. Nothing was too much trouble and he explained details very clearly about a personal alarm for my Mother. Thank you!
Phoned to purchase a Fall safe alarm for my 95 year old Mum. It was needed quickly as she was being discharged from a home. Spoke to John, he was very helpful & the alarm arrived the following day. Mum is very happy with it especially as it is light to wear. We did the alarm test & I was very impressed with the politeness & speed of answer. Let's hope it is never needed, but I feel confident knowing that Mum has it & that help is there if she does.
