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.

How does a Panic Button for the Elderly Work?

A panic alarm for the elderly can work in a variety of ways, depending on the particular model you choose. Different alarms have different features and benefits, so it is important to think carefully before you choose the one that you feel suits you best.

What most panic alarms have in common is how they help people in the event of an emergency. Most panic alarms are wearable devices that allow the user to call for help by simply pressing the SOS button. Multiple wearing options are available, with most alarms coming with both wrist and neck worn options. If the wearer needs help, for example if they suddenly feel unwell, all they need to do is press the button and the alarm will automatically call out for help.

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.
