Helping to keep your elderly parents and loved ones safe

A personal alarm system can be a great way of helping your elderly parent or loved one stay independent. Even if they live with you or you see them regularly, it is impossible to always be there. Our personal alarms are designed with the elderly in mind, fast to set up and with buttons that are easy to press in an emergency. A personal alarm can help your elderly loved one to be independent while making sure that help is never far away.

How can personal alarms help take care of elderly relatives?

Personal alarms are available in various styles. This includes the wrist worn fall detector and personal alarm pendant. They are discreet and lightweight which means that your loved one doesn't need to worry about wearing an 'old person alarm', they will hardly notice that they're wearing it - and neither will others.

There are many ways in which a personal alarm can help you take care of elderly relatives. Helpful features like automatic fall detection mean that somebody will be alerted even when your loved one cannot press their SOS pendant; they are also designed with elderly people in mind. This means that they have a great range and can be used in the home or garden, and some are designed to be used in high-slip-risk areas like the bathroom. We even have a range that uses mobile technology and GPS.

But how do they support elderly relatives to live independent lives?

It's not just about choosing an alarm that has a great list of features. If your elderly loved one has a personal alarm that helps them live independently, it can have a really positive impact on their mental health and physical wellbeing.

Our fall alarms give elderly wearers the confidence to get up and about which can improve their stability. This activity is known to have the knock-on effect of actually reducing the risk of falling among the elderly.

And while there are some obvious health benefits, personal alarm systems are also shown to improve the elderly wearer's feeling of safety. The elderly people we support appreciate having someone on the other end of their SOS pendant who can talk to them, give advice and call the emergency services if they're needed.

After my husband died, I felt very anxious a lot of the time and struggled to settle down at night. Now I feel safer just knowing I have the alarm in the house. I'm definitely getting a better night's sleep.

Advice for elderly relatives

Sometimes it can be difficult to know what to do for the best when caring for an elderly relative. That's why we've put together advice to support you or your loved one. It is important to know that you are never alone, our articles are based on our many years of experience supporting elderly people to live independently.

Does your elderly loved one live alone?

Loneliness within the elderly community is a fairly common issue. As people age, they become more vulnerable to loneliness. This could be because they can't get out much or they retire and don't have the same social networks. But what are the signs of loneliness in elderly people? How can you prevent loneliness in elderly relatives? And how can a personal alarm system make a lone elderly person feel safe?

Fall prevention in the elderly

Fall prevention is even more important as we age because our ability to heal gradually slows down. An initially minor injury can easily develop into a long-term, serious issue. The best personal alarm uses personal alarm fall detection and is designed to prevent falls. It's thought that just having a fall alarm can give elderly wearers peace of mind which makes them more confident on their feet.

Most elderly people live at home and need at least some level of care from relatives to maintain their independence. We've put together some important things to think about if you're caring for elderly parents. This includes tips on safety, wellbeing and changes you might need to make around the home.

As our parents and grandparents age, their health may deteriorate and they may become more vulnerable to the risk of falling. Falls impact not only people's physical but mental health as well. A fall can knock a persons confidence, so how can we all help reduce the risk of falling?

Two of my elderly relatives have been using SureSafe Alarms. The alarms have been extremely easy to order and install. The Teams dealing with dispatching and advising on setting them up have been understanding, courteous and knowledgable. Those at the centre where the alarms are monitored are great and show enormous respect and empathy for the elderly.
