For those of you asking yourself the following question: “My loved one hasn’t suffered a fall but I worry about them, should I buy alarms for the elderly just in case?” We can really sympathise with this concern and have put together a guide that can help you choose our alarms for the elderly.
When to Buy Alarms for the Elderly
In the UK, falls are the most common cause of injury related deaths in people over the age of 75. For this reason it’s important that the elderly always have a easy and quick way to get help to them. Around one in three over 65-year-olds who live at home will have at least one fall a year.
If your elderly loved one has suffered a fall in the past, alarms for the elderly are for them. It’s equally as important that those who haven’t suffered from a fall also have an alarm set up in the event of a fall. Don’t wait for an injury to happen before seriously considering getting an alarm.
Alarms for the elderly are available at Careline, we’ve put together a brief guide of our range below.
Our Range of Alarms:
A Key Safe
If a neighbour, family member or the emergency services need to get to you in your home, they traditionally may have needed to break in and even break down your front door. A Key Safe is a locked box outside your house, that holds a front door key that can only be accessed by those you trust with the code. For more information about how Key Safes work click here.
Careline Fall Alarm
In the event of a fall or an injury in the home, it can be difficult to get access too help if you live alone. Your phone may be out of reach, and neighbours may not hear your calls for help. To see how our Fall Alarms work, click here for more information.
A fall can happen anywhere in the home, or in your front garden or bathroom for example. In such cases it’s important the alarm can still reach help. Our alarm pendants work within a 50 metre range and can be used in the bathroom. Read more here.
