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.

Required a device for a period of time to help my mum have some confidence on her own after a suspected Heart Attack caused her to be unable to feel her arms and the pain stopped her from moving from her bed. She was unable to call for help for some time. Now on treatment that should ensure this no longer occurs and for a period of 3 to six months. So found this mobile phone network connected device that is going to ensure she can stay mobile travel and enjoy her recovery and not stuck in a house with the standard phone line connected pendent. So called had a chat and got the system set up by Angela in 5 minutes. Device arrived in about 24 hours and is now in use. Seems a great device for those who are unwell or recovering and require extra reassurance. So far I am impressed with the service and the device seems simple and as automated as possible. Certainly a belt and braces approach even for a short while or maybe permanently we shall see. GPS location is sent so emergency calls can be responded to instantly.

Whenever I have contacted SureSafe Alarms (be it by using the alarm itself, phone call or email) I have experienced helpful and knowlegeable advice and have received polite, cordial and friendly service. I have had the 'talking' pendant for some years now and it has given me the confidence to live alone and feel safe.

I contacted Suresafe as my mum needed a neck attachment for her alarm as the wrist band was too big for her. I received an immediate response from CHAT and Angela was so helpful, sending out the attachment without any issue. True excellent customer service. Makes me feel at ease with mum living so far away. Thank you 😊

I have had dealings with SureSafe for many years and would recommend their Personal Alarms for anyone who needs help and assistance. It certainly gives you please of mind to know that your vulnerable family member has 24 hour access should they need it. We have had complete reliability from the personal alarm and it certainly is great value for money. I would wholeheartedly recommend SureSafe as a genuine company who sell good quality products at a competitive price.

I have a serious heart condition and I stay alone in home for prolonged periods daily. My daughter gifted me this system to ensure I can get life saving help quickly should I need it. The system works perfectly and it makes me feel secure and gives the whole family peace of mind.
I highly recommend it for people at risk.

SureSafe's wrist worn alarm options include the SureSafeGO Plus alarm, the FallSafe and the SureSafe Personal Alarm. These three alarms offer a range of different features, all of which can be worn discreetly on the wrist. Whether you are looking for fall detection, 24/7 monitoring or an alarm that calls family and friends directly, these 3 wrist alarms give you plenty of choice at an affordable price.
