Award-winning emergency buttons for elderly people

Personal alarms and emergency buttons can help older people to live independently and give both them and their loved ones the peace of mind that comes with knowing that assistance is just the press of a button away, if ever needed.

Our range of in-home personal alarms work in the home and garden. They are ideal for someone who perhaps just wants that extra layer of reassurance as they get older so they can continue to live safely at home, where they are most comfortable.

Knowing that there is a fully trained Emergency Resolution Team available 24-hours a day, seven days a week, if there is an incident at home, have a fall or would just like some reassurance, can really help to boost confidence when living independently.

What features do you need in your emergency pendant?

The features available with panic buttons for the elderly can vary, so it’s important to find the right kind of personal alarm service for your needs, whether it’s for yourself or a loved one.

How a personal panic button can be worn

Many people like to wear a home emergency alert for the elderly around their neck like a pendant, which is why they are often known as pendant alarms or emergency pendants.

This means that the alarm is always on the person, but doesn’t get in the way and doesn’t need to be consciously carried around from room to room at home.

There are panic buttons for the elderly that can also be worn on the wrist, just like a watch, which some people might prefer. They can often also be attached to a keyring or belt.

How to get help if you fall

An alarm with built-in fall detection will automatically make an alarm call when it senses the wearer has fallen.

Fall detection features

If you or your loved one is at risk of a fall, either because of experiencing a fall previously or perhaps due to being a little less mobile, having some balance problems or being a bit more frail than in the past, you can choose a home safety alarm for the elderly that has built-in fall detection.

This means that it can detect when the person wearing it has a fall and will automatically raise an alert.

GPS technology in personal alarms

While many personal alarms are primarily designed for use in the home and garden of the wearer, at those times when they are likely to be alone, some people might also want a personal panic button that they can take out and about with them too.

This type of personal alarm doesn’t need to be connected to a landline (it has its own SIM card) and can send the GPS location of the wearer to the Emergency Resolution Team.

Home sensors with personal alarms

Having a wearable personal alarm can be great for peace of mind, but the latest technology also enables sensors to be placed into an older person’s home to make monitoring elderly parents remotely in the UK very straightforward, without compromising anyone’s privacy, as there are no cameras or microphones involved.

The sensors are there to ‘learn’ the routine at home using Artificial Intelligence (AI) and can then send an alert if something unexpected happens in the home, such as someone not using the kitchen or appliances in the home, like the kettle, as they usually do.

Choosing the right home emergency alert for your elderly loved one

Once you've decided which features you want for the in-home alarm system for your needs, you can build a package that meets all of those requirements to provide maximum possible reassurance that you or your loved one has that extra layer of protection in place.
