Talking Pendant Alarms Without a Landline

Talking pendant alarms for the elderly allow you or your loved one to talk to our 24/7 response centre, or your nominated contacts, directly through the pendant or the wristband. Wherever you are in the home or garden, or even when ‘out and about’, you can speak directly to the person answering the alarm call. This means that you can tell them exactly what type of help you need, so you get the right help – fast!

How is a Medical Alert System with a Speaker in the Pendant Different from other Alarms?

A talking pendant alarm for the elderly, also known as a medical alert system with a speaker in the pendant, isn’t like most standard alarms. If you buy a low-quality standard alarm, it will only have a base unit that plugs into your landline. The base has an integrated speaker, and you speak to the base when you need help. You can’t talk through the pendant.

What happens if you fall in the bedroom, bathroom or kitchen? If your ‘standard type’ alarm is plugged into the telephone socket in the hallway downstairs then chances are you won’t be able to speak to the respondent, they won’t know what you need. And if you are in the garden when you fall or feel unwell then forget about it, there is no chance of two-way communication.

Additionally, if the speaker inside the base unit doesn’t have a good enough range, your voice won’t be picked up. There a lot of reasons why a talking pendant alarm is the way to go.

That’s why a SureSafe medical alert system with a speaker in the pendant provides extra protection and peace of mind. You can be sure that when you press the SOS button you will hear the person you have contacted loud and clear.

Most ‘standard’ alarms do not offer this feature. The traditional alarms on the market are based on the same technology as when they was first launched in the 1980’s. It is simple to use and reliable, but it has not kept pace with the advances made in technology. This is how SureSafe’s talking pendant alarms are different.

How do Talking Pendant Alarms for the Elderly Work?

A talking pendant alarm for the elderly contains a small speaker and microphone that allows you to speak and listen through your pendant. It means you, and your family, have the security of knowing help is at hand whether you’re indoors or ‘out and about’ simply with the touch of a button. Not all talking pendants need a landline either, there are talking pendant alarms without a landline that use mobile phone technology. This means they can be used both at home and when ‘out and about’.

If you feel unwell or have a fall, you don’t need to worry about finding your mobile phone or landline. With the talking pendant all you need to do is press the SOS button to get help. When you press the button, a call will go through to a SureSafe operator or your nominated contacts, depending on which talking pendant alarm without a landline device you have.

Not everyone can use a mobile phone. An elderly person may have difficulty due to shaking hands, sight problems or forgetfulness. They might also be unable to locate it or work it during a sudden illness or fall. A talking pendant alarm without a landline can give you, or your loved one back their independence. They will have the confidence to get out into the garden or get out to visit friends.

A medical alert system with a speaker in the pendant means you can have a two-way conversation with a SureSafe Operator or one of three nominated contacts. It is an emergency call device you wear around your neck, even in the shower. You don’t need to depend on your telephone. Your emergency button is with you all the time you are wearing your talking pendant alarm without a landline.

Why You Should Have a Talking Pendant

Studies show that getting help in the first 60 minutes after a heart attack can prevent your death. After a fall, muscle cell breakdown begins between 20 and 60 minutes after the incident. And, for every 15 minutes that passes after a stroke the likelihood of death increases by 4%. Minutes matter.

If you are unfortunate and suffer from a fall, a stroke, or a heart attack, then quick access to medical attention is vital. The faster you can get emergency assistance, the better your chances are of making a full recovery.

If you are wearing a talking pendant, you will get assistance quickly when you’re alone. Depending on the type of personal alarm you’re wearing, a call will go through to a SureSafe operator or to your nominated contacts. You can tell them exactly what is happening and help can be on the way within seconds.

What our customers think of our fall alarms

Fall alarms can make a real difference to our customers and their families, but don't just take our word for it read our reviews to see for yourself...

Absolutely brilliant product and company and I cannot praise them highly enough. We bought the alarm when my father stumbled and fell into the bath one night and was unable to get out himself. As he still liked to go shopping we bought the alarm with the SIM card and the automatic fall detection. The staff at SureSafe were amazing about getting us set up with the right product, the whole process was so simple from start to finish. In all their dealings with us, SureSafe were incredibly friendly and highly professional. Dad was a bit reluctant to use the alarm at first as he once pressed it while asleep and the emergency services were soon there. They were fine about it and said they would rather be called out once too often than not enough. After that, he felt more at ease and really did wear it all the time. The automatic fall detection was brilliant. When he finally did fall and broke his arm, the ambulance crew was there in no time and called me to let me know what was happening. Before he finally entered a care home, this alarm gave me me so much peace of mind that my father was able to stay in his own home and that I could be sure he would not be lying injured without anyone finding him. Very reasonably priced too.

This company deserves the highest of recognitions. I dealt with a lady called Angela, she was extremely helpful, made the whole process of getting a fall alarm for my mum so easy. No hassle and very straight forward. I cannot thank you enough for all your help. I have no hesitation in recommending this company. First class throughout.

My grand daughter bought me an alarm for my birthday, I can talk through it and it tells the lovely people at suresafe if I have a fall and I can press a button. I can now walk my dog further and for longer. In a world gone mad with Covid, you can still be sure SureSafe will keep you safe,

My father (91) recently had a fall at home (he lives by himself) and he used the SureSafe button that he was wearing to call for help. They quickly contacted my sister-in-law but the phone line was bad and the connection could not be made. So SureSafe then called the local emergency services in my father's area and two police officers came to get him back on his feet. I would definitely recommend this company and their service for elderly people who may need help if they get into any difficulty.

Exceptional Customer Service and Excellent Product. This company have completely exceeded my expectation... I can not speak highly enough about them. They went over and above to ensure that was able to achieve my goal of receiving my Fall Safe urgently and have it set up in super fast time. I would recommend them in a heart beat. My father was really pleased with the alarm warn on the wrist which is totally waterproof which means he does not need to take it off. I could see him visibly calm just knowing that someone would be there should he have a fall....... and I actually slept for the first time in a week! Great product, so easy to set up (you just plug it in), simple instructions, had a message to test the system when we were ready, very polite service centre. 5 STARS!

I was unsure about getting a pendant alarm, but am so thankful I did. It gives utter peace of mind to family and friends, but also to me. I never worry about going walks on my own, even in isolated spots, as I know I can get help very speedily, should I be unwell. Having the satellite tracking system, and also the falls alert, gives peace of mind. The centre rings me if I forget to charge the device and they never mind if you ring by accident. The service is excellent and when I recently needed an item, it came within 24 hours. Thank you!

I needed something for my elderly mother who had suffered from some falls. The equipment was delivered quickly and was easy to use. It gave me great peace of mind knowing help would come quickly. Support was available, and was very responsive. I would highly recommend this service. Les

This is the 3rd alarm we've bought for our 90 year old mother from various companies and so far it is the most reliable. As she lives in a rural town, signal coverage has always been an intermittent problem but with her tracker now choosing the best from O2, EE and Vodafone, we can see exactly where she is all the time. A big improvement. SOS and fall alerts are working well too so well pleased. The company were quick to dispatch and help set up which was pretty easy. It could do with an app so you can view the routes the tracker has taken but the company say they are working on this. However by just sending a text to the tracker you can find out within seconds where she is, and when you phone it she can speak to us despite it being buried under her jumper when she's out for a walk.
