Peace of mind with an alarm pendant from TakingCare

If your older loved one or relative lives independently but could be at risk of a fall, an elderly alarm pendant can bring real peace of mind. If they are a little frailer than they used to be, it is reassuring to know they are able to call for help if something does happen when no one else is around.

Pendant alarms are designed to be worn comfortably around your neck. This means they won't be forgotten as you move around the home or garden because they don’t need to be picked up and carried like a mobile phone.

With alarm pendants that are worn at all times, you can get help even if you don't have a mobile phone or other device to hand by pressing the button on the pendant, providing a more effective and reliable way to raise an alarm than a mobile.

There are elderly alarm pendants that are perfect for the home and garden, or for out-and-about with our location-aware GPS features. Having an alarm pendant can help older adults living independently to stay in their own home and carry on with their usual activities for longer. They provide reassurance for the individual and their loved ones that help can be reached if something were to happen.

This can help with confidence too, meaning you are able to better enjoy the things you like to do with the peace of mind that with just the press of a button on your alarm pendant, you can reach assistance 24/7.

What features to look for in an elderly alarm pendant system

We have a range of pendant alarms for the elderly and vulnerable with various features so you can find the best solution, whether you’re looking on your own behalf or for someone else.

Some of the most common features available in elderly pendant alarms include:

Long battery life

Alarm pendants from TakingCare are designed to have a long battery life of up to five years. The pendant won’t need to be taken off and plugged in to recharge and the battery won’t run down and leave the wearer without assistance either.

Our systems know when your alarm pendant battery needs to be replaced and we will arrange for this to be done free of charge so that it isn't a worry or concern.

Water-resistant pendant alarms

A significant number of falls and injuries that happen in the homes of older adults occur in the bathroom. With water spillages likely and plenty of other slip and fall hazards, if you or your loved one were to have an accident and be injured in the bathroom, raising the alarm could be a problem if they’re on their own in the home.

With our water-resistant pendant alarms that can be worn in the bathroom or shower, it means that help is always within reach if something does happen.

Fall detection technology in your pendant alarm

If you or your elderly loved one have had a fall in the past, or are starting to have more challenges with balance, a pendant alarm with built-in fall detection is a good choice.

As we get older, the risk of experiencing a fall increases. Having an alarm pendant device that senses the impact of a hard fall and automatically raises an alert with our 24/7 Emergency Resolution Team provides you with reassurance.

In the event of a fall, our team will get in touch with the wearer through the alarm unit and can arrange for help from family, friends or the emergency services. Even if the wearer is unable to speak, assistance can be sent, and emergency contacts called.

GPS technology in your alarm pendant

If you or your older loved one enjoy activities out of the house such as gardening or regularly travel within the UK, a pendant alarm with GPS technology could be the perfect fit.

These devices are location-aware and can send the wearer’s location to the Emergency Resolution Team if an alert is raised. This means that wherever they are in the UK, their location is known if help is needed.

Pendant alarms that can also be worn as a watch

While many people love the simplicity and ease of use of their pendant alarm, some people prefer a different wearable option.

Many of our pendant alarms can be worn around the wrist or clipped to a belt. For example, the Digital Personal Alarm has a choice of necklace or wrist strap so it can also be worn as a watch.

Our alarms are convenient and comfortable to wear, whether worn as a pendant or a watch. They operate in the same way with a straightforward button to press in case of emergency, so help can always be reached when needed.

Choosing the right elderly alarm pendant system

Each person and situation is unique, which is why we offer a wide range of pendant alarms with different features that can suit people with a variety of different circumstances - so there is something for everyone!

If you’re looking at pendant alarms for a relative or friend, talking to them about changes like this can feel daunting.

However, having a solution like an alarm pendant can enable them to enjoy a much more independent life, particularly if they are diagnosed with elderly epilepsy or another concerning condition.

If you’re considering a pendant alarm for yourself, to help offer peace of mind for you and your family and the confidence to live as you want to in later life, we believe that we have a solution that will fit your lifestyle and needs.
