Do Personal Alarm Devices for the Elderly Help Keep them Safe?

Safety when at home alone can be a big source of worry for many. By encouraging the use of a personal alarm device for the elderly, you can help to put your mind at ease and help those living alone to feel safer and more secure by providing a simple way to call for help in the event of an emergency. When faced with an emergency such as a fall, a loss of consciousness, or a stroke, it may not be possible to reach or use a phone in order to gain assistance. With a personal alarm system for the elderly, help is just a button press away.

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.

Informative website, easy to order with fast delivery. Very easy to install the alarm, works when installed in the Virgin media cable telephone socket and test call was answered quickly. Thanks to the customer service team for answering my query about whether it would work or not with a Virgin cable phone and broadband installation. I like the fact the alarm can be wrist worn all the time including in the shower so that my dad doesn't forget to put it on. So far very impressed with Suresafe alarms

Unobtrusive. Easy to setup and use. Gives me confidence if I have to pop out to the shops, knowing, if my wife falls, she can contact me immediately. We'll worth the investment.

Great service from start to finish. They’re alway contactable if you have any questions. Very friendly, knowledgeable staff. I feel much better now my elderly mother and uncle have an alarm each. It’s very easy for my sister and I to check the status of their alarms via our mobile phones. So glad we chose Suresafe!!

Very pleased with SureSafe indeed, dad has no problems with it either, half the time he doesn’t even know he’s got it on, which is great, he’s had a call before from SureSafe to say he needs to charge it, which is excellent, at the moment though he’s not well enough to go out the flat, but it’s great reassurance for me, that if he needs help it’s right there, seeing as he lives on his own. Honestly couldn’t recommend this highly enough, absolutely fantastic item, and brilliant with the GPS too. There is nothing to fault with it, it’s a wonderful item, so well done. Anyone thinking of getting one, you certainly wouldn’t be disappointed with SureSafe.
