24/7 Emergency Monitoring Systems for the Elderly
24/7 Alarm Monitoring for the elderly
24/7 alarm monitoring for the elderly is where your personal alarm is connected to SureSafe’s 24/7 Response Centre. When you push the button on your pendant or wristband, your alarm call will be connected to one of our Response Centre Operators. We are here day and night, every day of the year, to get you or your loved one the help that you need. Our 24/7 service offers you the highest level of safety available, and gives your loved ones the peace of mind that help is always on hand when needed. You are never alone when you are connected to SureSafe 24/7 fall monitoring service.
You can leave an elderly person with a mobile phone or landline to get help if they have an accident or feel unwell. But is it dependable? If your loved one has a fall, they might not be able to reach a landline. Mobile phones can run out of battery, not to mention you would have to carry it around with you everywhere you go. Not just inconvenient, it is not even possible when you consider that you cannot take it in the shower with you – the highest risk place for a fall. So what is the solution?
The way to make your loved one feel safe and give you peace of mind is to invest in an emergency monitoring system for the elderly. This can be in the form of a 24/7 monitoring pendant or wristband. The elderly personal monitor can either connect to a base unit which you plug into the mains supply and telephone socket, or it can be fully mobile and can be worn anywhere you go. With the latter, there is no base unit or landline needed. Both our in-home and ‘Go Anywhere’ alarms come with access to SureSafe’s industry leading 24/7 monitoring service.

How a 24/7 emergency monitoring system for the elderly works
The pendant or wristband is comfortable to wear, and the call button is easy to locate. When you press the button, a call goes through to our response centre. An operator will then talk to you and take the appropriate action - they will get you the help you need. This can be calling the emergency services, contacted family and friends, or both.
Why the 24/7 alarm is the ideal elderly personal monitor
People over the age of sixty-five have a much higher risk of falling than someone younger. These falls can lead to fractures and breaks.
A person who has had a fall will not only suffer from the distress and pain of falling, but it could lead to the loss of their independence. In some cases, a fall can result in death.
If a person does have a fall, it is vital to get them help as quickly as possible. Minutes matter.
If an elderly person is unable to summon help, they could be lying in a painful and awkward position. After a few hours they could begin to dehydrate or on a cold floor, suffer from hypothermia.
A person wearing a 24/7 emergency monitoring system for the elderly can get help without having to try and get on their feet to get to a phone. A gentle push of the call button will activate a fast response. Getting help fast will reduce the risk of further suffering. This gives you or your loved one the best chance of a full and speedy recovery.

‘Minutes matter when it comes to getting the help you need.

The ambulance service said that because mum had medical attention within minutes of pressing her pendant she would be home soon, and make a full recovery’Rosie Response Centre Operator

Frequently Asked Questions
Have a question? Take a look at some of the common questions that people have before buying a SureSafe alarm:
Don’t worry, we have you covered. When an alarm is triggered and we cannot speak to you through your talking pendant or the base unit, we will try to contact you on your home phone and landline. If you do not answer we will ask one of your family and friends nominated contacts to check on you. If no family and friends are available, we will contact the emergency services and ask them to check on you instead. With SureSafe, no alarm call goes unanswered.
We have a wide range of personal alarms that let you connect straight to a trained Response Centre Operator at one of our Monitoring Centres. Our monitored alarms are designed with you and your loved one in mind. That is why they are easy to set up, user-friendly and simple to operate, and have affordable monitoring fees.
That’s why you never have to worry if you trigger the alarm but can’t talk, the call still goes through and is treated as an SOS call. Whether you speak or not, a personal alarm for the elderly will send an alert to your contacts, or a SureSafe operator (with 24/7 monitoring).
This means you will get help when you need it. You might have suffered a fall and you are unconscious, or you have had a stroke or a heart attack. In these cases, minutes matter, and our call operators are trained to take the most appropriate action, quickly.
If your call goes through to a nominated family contact, they will know that if you can’t speak you may need medical attention. They can phone the emergency services while they are on their way to your home. This system means there is no delay in getting the help you need.
Wearing your personal alarm for elderly as a pendant or on your wrist makes it easy to press the SOS button. With just one touch a SureSafe alert will be set in motion.
