Personal Alarms

Why Should The Elderly Carry Personal Alarms?

Personal alarms can be a lifesaver, literally, for both you and your aging relatives. Whether your loved ones live by themselves or with skilled providers, having a personal alarm can still bring you both the peace of mind that you seek. A personal alarm can alert responders, friends or family members to potentially life-threatening situations before they get out of hand or before it becomes too late.

The Importance Of Personal Alarms For The Elderly

Older people often feel embarrassed or ashamed to ask friends or family for help in their Autumn years. Whether they have a degenerative condition, a disease or whether they’re just struggling to manage in the same way that they used to, it can be difficult to have to approach loved ones and admit that they can no longer cope. Personal alarms can provide an excellent solution, enabling them to continue living independently with the added benefit of being able to summon assistance as and when necessary.

Due to impaired balance and weaker bones, older people sometimes fall or slip, make lose things or become forgetful or struggle to function while carrying out daily tasks. Even getting from room to room may prove to be a struggle. Getting into and out of their bath may pose a challenge and even a cup of tea could burn them if their hand shakes and spills the contents accidentally. A personal alarm ensures that they can get attention quickly in the event of an emergency without needing to have a phone to hand or remember a telephone number. Since older people can find themselves in all kinds of emergency situations, it’s easy to see why personal alarms for the elderly can be a literally lifesaving solution for independent living.

Planning Ahead For An Emergency

A lot of older people still cling on tenaciously to their independence and don’t want to have a personal alarm. Although their courageousness and strength is admirable, it doesn’t mean they’ll cope in the event of an emergency. A personal alarm can be indispensable when it comes to getting help in a crisis. Light-headedness, vision issues, strokes or heart attacks could strike at any time when you get older and being safe is always better than being sorry. Wearing an alarm brings you and those you care for peace of mind.

Since multiple contacts can be alerted with a simple press of a button, you can be confident that help can be on the way in just a few minutes when it’s most needed. There’s nothing more frightening that facing an emergency alone without any assistance or support, but that will never happen with personal alarm systems in place.
