Are you considering a Care Line alarm? Before you make your decision, it’s important to weigh up the different benefits of a personal alarm. Some benefits will be more applicable to certain people than others, depending on your circumstances. For example, people who live by themselves will likely have different needs than someone who lives with a spouse or relative. Understand how an alarm could help you and be sure it’s the right option for you and your needs.
The advantages of Care Line for the elderly:
- Continued Independence – 97% of people want to avoid moving into a care home. Wouldn’t we all prefer to stay in our own homes where we’re most comfortable? With an alarm, you can stay near your familiar community, neighbours, family and friends. Doing some of your own chores and weeding the garden is still possible with our pendant alarm’s 50-metre range.
- Inexpensive Solution – we all hate to talk about money, but the savings that a personal alarm can offer in comparison to care home fees are HUGE.
- Put Families At Ease – many relatives contact us after their loved one has had a fall, and are so thankful that they had the alarm and our care team to comfort them. It really can give you peace of mind to know that if you’re not available, someone else is there to help whatever the time of day.
Is an alarm the suitable option?
While personal alarms are very versatile, they are not a one-size-fits-all solution. For some people, particularly those who have one or more long-term medical conditions, living alone in their own home may no longer be viable, with or without a care line alarm.
However, many elderly people are both mentally and physically able to continue living at home for as long as they can. These are the people we are keen to reach and ensure that they can keep an active and independent life. If this sounds like you or someone you know, perhaps it’s time to think about installing a care line for the elderly.
Who should I buy an alarm from?
There are so many different personal alarms on the market, many with similar-sounding names. It can become rather confusing! It’s really important that you trust your alarm provider to be helpful with any issues you have. You should also be confident that they have skilled care teams ready to receive a call for help.
Our Care Line for the elderly alarms connect directly to our 24-hour Care Team who will reassure you and work out the best course of action depending on the situation. They’re there 24/7, 365 days a year.
