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.

A clever product supported by excellent sales and customer service. We purchased the SureSafe Go for my Mum. Initial enquiry feedback,the sale and post sale customer service have all been superb. There was one slight glitch with a confirmation email not being received. This was not the fault of SureSafe and was quickly rectified by resending the email. The product has given my Mum a feeling of increased independence and peace of mind for her family.

So far so good! I picked up the phone and spoke to John as I wanted to double check this was the right alarm for my father. Clear, helpful information. Best thing about this alarm is you speak directly into the neck piece, not a base station. Perfect! Does everything we need. Only just started using it so can’t verify the 24/7 assistance but fingers crossed- we have peace of mind to leave my father for short periods knowing he has immediate help should he need it.

My initial order via my smart phone was thwarted by difficulties with my payment method but I found it straightforward, with the help of Daryl, on my laptop. Thereafter all was plain sailing. The Friends and Family wristband arrived the next day (a Saturday). The setup was simple, even for an oldie, and my three offspring now have their tabs on me. It is functioning, although I am not sure of the charge capacity. Altogether a very efficient company with helpful, knowledgeable staff

Prompt and efficient service. I phoned to get more information and Darryl was very friendly and helpful. The wrist alarm arrived the day after the order and instructions were straightforward and we managed to set it up without trouble. It is very reassuring to know we can be in touch if needed.
