What is a Panic Button for the Elderly?
Do you have concerns about what would happen if an accident should occur and nobody is around to help? The answer could be a panic button for the elderly.
When you need a solution to help you rest easy, a panic button for yourself, or elderly relatives, gives you the additional security you seek. Giving older people the confidence to stay in their own homes, panic buttons offer a safe and reliable way of calling for assistance from family, friends or the emergency services, whenever they feel at risk or vulnerable.
How Can A Panic Button For The Elderly Help?
A panic alarm for the elderly is an extremely useful tool for people wanting to maintain their independence long into their old age. As panic buttons allow the user to summon assistance should they fall or become unwell, both the user and their family and friends are afforded greater peace of mind knowing their loved ones are being looked after. The alarm can also be used if the user feels distressed at all, for example if they have an unexpected or unwanted caller at their door, or feel in danger in any way.
For elderly people living alone, this service can be a vital lifeline. Family members may not always be able to reach their aging loved ones quickly when they call. With a 24-hour monitoring service, older people can remain independent, living in their own homes for longer whilst still feeling confident and secure.
