Have you ever thought about buying an elderly alarm? Perhaps you're considering getting one for an elderly loved one. Whether you're buying for yourself or on behalf of someone else, you're in the right place. Today, we're counting down our top 3 reasons to buy an elderly alarm.
Here at Careline365, we provide a life-saving personal alarm service for elderly people, disabled people, and anyone who wants to feel protected at home. All of our alarms come with 24-hour support from our expert Care Team. When you press your alarm in an emergency, they'll answer your call and send help straight to your home.
1. Get Help at the Touch of a Button
The most important reason to buy an elderly alarm from Careline is this: it allows you to call for help with just one touch of a button. This can be a lifesaver for anyone who suffers a fall or a medical emergency. Our standard elderly alarm package includes a red pendant button along with a base unit that connects to the mains and telephone.
The portable red pendant can be worn around the neck or wrist - you'll receive both wearing attachments, so the choice is yours. Pressing the pendant's red button will send out a call from the base unit to our 24-hour Care Team. A member of the team will answer the call and speak to you via the speaker in the base unit. They'll quickly assess the situation and send help to your home, usually in the form of your emergency contacts. You can select up to six emergency contacts during the set-up process. When necessary, the Care Team will also call for the emergency services to attend.
It's no exaggeration to say that this service saves lives. With more than 3.8 million older people living by themselves in the UK, this is one of the most important reasons to buy an elderly alarm.
2. Retain Independence
Next, buying an elderly alarm can help the user to retain their independence and carry on living in their own home. A 2014 survey revealed that 97% of people do not want to move into a care home when they are older. The vast majority of people want to continue living independently in their own homes. A personal alarm can help you do just that.
Having an elderly alarm can give a crucial confidence boost to someone who is worried about living by themselves or having a fall, for example.
3. Total Peace of Mind
Last but not least, a personal alarm provides total peace of mind, not only for the user but also for their family and friends.
The Care Team is on hand 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This knowledge can put everyone at ease, leaving the alarm user to carry on living independently in the home they love. You'll no longer need to worry about what might happen if you have a fall at home - your Careline Alarm is right there on your wrist or around your neck.
