Peace of mind with a GPS monitored personal alarm

For those living independently in later years, the risk of a fall, a medical event or another kind of incident can be a worry, for both the individual and for relatives and loved ones.

Whether it’s in the home or when out and about, knowing that help is just the push of a button away can bring real peace of mind.

Personal alarms that are designed to be taken out of the home can give someone in their later years additional confidence to go out and live their life to the full, able to continue the activities, hobbies and social interactions that they enjoy.

This is because they are reassured by the knowledge that their personal alarm can get an alert out if needed, along with their GPS location, so help is at hand if it’s required.

Our fully trained Emergency Resolution Team are on hand 24/7 if there is a problem or an incident, which can make a big difference to someone who wants to keep their independence in their later years.

What features to look for in a GPS monitored personal alarm?

Features on alert devices that are designed to be taken out of the home can vary, so it’s important to decide on the right kind of personal alarm service for your needs, whether it’s for you or for an elderly friend or relative.

These vary from those that simply track and send a location if needed, such as for someone with dementia, to fully-featured panic button wristbands or pendants that enable two-way communication and even count steps. Some of the areas to consider include:

Panic button wristband or pendant?

Many people like to wear their GPS personal alarm around their neck like a pendant, which is why they are sometimes also called pendant alarms.

A benefit of wearing the alarm like this is that it doesn’t need to be consciously carried around because it’s always worn on their person. Other people prefer wearing a wrist alarm for the elderly that looks and feels just like a smartwatch, because it is more suitable for their lifestyle, clothing choices or simply feels more subtle.

These types of alarms can sometimes also be attached to a keyring or belt; so, if this function is important to you, it’s essential to choose an alarm that fits with how you would prefer to wear it.

Fall detection features

If you or your loved one have had a fall in the past, or think that there’s a chance of falling while out and about, perhaps because balance isn’t what it once was, you may want a GPS personal alarm that includes fall detection technology.

This means that the device senses if the wearer falls over and automatically alerts the Emergency Resolution Team, even if the alarm button isn’t pressed.

Fall detection features

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

Battery life for your monitored personal alarm

Our range of GPS location-aware personal alarms are designed to be taken wherever you go and have a range of different battery types, so it’s important to check how often your device will need to be charged to make sure that this fits well with your life and routine.

For example, an elderly alarm smartwatch might need to be charged every day/night, whereas other types of GPS personal alarm can be anywhere between a few days and a couple of months between charges. Finding a device that fits with your lifestyle is important to making best use of the alarm system over time.

Activity tracker on your personal alarm wristband

In addition to an alert feature and potentially fall detection technology, some personal alarm wristbands also have features like pedometers, that track how many steps the wearer takes each day.

This can be a great help for older people trying to stay active as well as combining the useful and reassuring functionality of a panic button wristband in the same device.

Choosing the right GPS panic button wristband, tracker or pendant for your elderly loved one

When you’ve settled on the features that you want for your location-aware personal alarm system, you can select a package that meets your needs to ensure that it fits well with your lifestyle, or the usual activities of your elderly loved one.

Your customised alarm package can provide an extra layer of protection and peace of mind that help is always on hand if needed, helping you or your loved one to live a full, independent and active life for as long as possible.
