A panic alarm is a device, usually worn as a bracelet or pendant, which can be used to call for help in the event of an emergency, such as an accident or illness. A medical alert panic alarm system works by prompting a call to a careline when activated. Once connected to an operator, the most appropriate response can be implemented. Panic alarms are the ideal solution for those at risk of falls or who live alone. They offer reassurance and peace of mind both to the user and to their friends and relatives, who know that in the event of a problem the alarm can be raised. A pendant alarm for the elderly and those with mobility problems can save lives. Research suggests that prompt medical attention during an emergency or following a fall can significantly increase the chances of a full recovery. A medical alert button ensures loved ones are able to get help when they need it most. What are the benefits of a panic alarm for the elderly? There are a range of benefits to using a panic alarm and the telecare system. These include:
More and more people are choosing to stay in their own homes as they get older. Whether this is to retain some independence and privacy or due to cost, medical alert systems are an ideal way to ensure they can have the best of both worlds. Individuals are able to stay in the comfort of familiar surroundings without having to rely on friends and relatives to check up on them so often.
A telecare system offers safety, reassurance and peace of mind for those who are at risk of fall, living alone, returning from hospital or with limited mobility.
