Personal alarms are perfect for older people concerned about not being able to summon help, after a fall at home or out walking, or stuck in the bath or a chair for example. Personal alarms give peace of mind to families knowing that elderly parents and relatives are safe and can call for help 24/7.

Worn as pendants round the neck,  or the wrist, personal alarms have different features for different needs.  There are broadly three main features and types of personal alarm to consider:

Mobile personal alarms – which operate much as a mobile phone does without the need of a connection via a landline; for use in the home and out and about, wherever there is mobile coverage, the wearer presses the alarm to be connected to the 24/7 call centre speaking directly through the device. The location of the wearer is built-in to the alarm technology making them easy to find.

Simple alarms for use in the home (limited range in eg the garden) – most are connected to a 24/7 call centre through a base unit attached to the landline.  The wearer presses the alarm button and will be connected to a call centre operator who will speak directly to them to determine the problem and decide next steps – call a family member or neighbour or the emergency services.
