5 Benefits of Elderly Alarms and Detectors

elderly alarms

Personal alarms or elderly alarms are small wearable pendants or devices that an older person can use to get help if they have a fall, feel unwell or unsafe, or have an emergency. 

An elderly alarm ‘gives you the freedom to live independently in your home. With the touch of a button, you can call the 24-hour Emergency Resolution Centre for help should you have an accident when alone’ – AGE UK.

There are many types of elderly alarms and detectors, such as a falls detector or a lifeline unit with a pendant. 

Different types of elderly alarms have various features, and choosing the right one to suit your needs is crucial. However, regardless of which elderly alarm you choose, they all have fantastic benefits for the user and their family, friends and loved ones. 

Here are our top 5 benefits of elderly alarms: 

1. Elderly alarms provide a quick response

Having an elderly alarm in an emergency could make all the difference. At the click of a button, you will be in touch with a 24/7 monitoring centre that can act promptly to your needs. This helps to ensure that you get the help you need as soon as possible and give you the best chance of a speedy recovery. 

2. Peace of mind 

Not only does the use of an elderly alarm give the user peace of mind but also friends, family, neighbours and loved ones. Knowing you have access to help if needed can be very reassuring to everyone involved, so you can all relax knowing you’re in safe hands.

3. Independence and confidence 

With peace of mind and reassurance that you have help on hand should you ever need it, it gives you the confidence to continue living an independent and active lifestyle. An elderly alarm doesn’t disrupt your current living, so you can go about your day-to-day as you normally would.

4. Elderly alarms can reduce pressure on the NHS

With ever-growing pressure on the NHS, you might feel like you want to avoid putting any extra pressure on them. Having an elderly alarm in place can help you and the NHS in several ways. Elderly alarms help raise the alarm sooner, which can shorten and even prevent hospital admission. Elderly alarms are also a home care provision, meaning patients with these systems in place are more likely to be discharged from the hospital sooner, which can free up a bed for the next person who needs it.

5. Pendants are discreet

Pendants can be worn around the neck for easy access and are very compact; for example, our Red Button Lifeline Pendant is no bigger than a standard house key. Other alarm systems can be discreetly worn on the wrist, like a watch; for example, our Red Button Falls Detector is a similar size to an apple watch. As the elderly alarms are so small and compact, they won’t interfere with any lifestyle.
