In the UK, one in three people over the age of 65 will suffer a fall each year. As well as physical injuries, a fall can also have significant psychological effects. Unfortunately, elderly people living alone are especially vulnerable.
A panic button alarm consists of a base unit and a button. The small, stylish button can be worn around the wrist or neck, with a choice of comfortable wearing attachments. If the alarm user needs help, they simply press the red help button. Our 24-Hour Response Team will quickly arrange help, either by contacting the user’s emergency contacts or the emergency services. The panic button alarm allows elderly or disabled people to call for help, 24 hours a day.
The panic button alarm is the perfect solution if you are living alone or if you are concerned about an elderly loved one’s well-being.
