Elderly personal alarms are a more worthwhile investment than you might think

There are so many reasons why people all over the world finally decide to invest in a personal alarm, and you’d be surprised to know that not every purchase is for those with a medical condition or over the age of 80. Personal alarms are just a simple, affordable safety net for you and your family. Whatever your situation, it may be time to consider investing in a personal alarm after reading the reasons below! 


In today’s global society, many families are spread out across the country and even across the world. This can make it really difficult to reach elderly loved ones quickly enough in the event of an accident or an emergency. Even if you are lucky enough to live close to your loved ones, it can be incredibly difficult to just leave work in a hurry, especially without knowing the severity of the situation. Whether it’s your 65 year old Mum or your 90 year old Grandad, no one can predict an accident and no one should carry that worry on their shoulders. Whether your loved one lives far away or you have a busy work life, personal alarms are there to offer you that deserved peace of mind. You can relax in the knowledge that someone is on hand to take care of your loved one should they need it. Our services function 24/7, 365 days of the year.


Another factor to take into consideration is how much these personal alarms can help relieve some of the current strain on the NHS. In a study conducted by The Telegraph, the latest Department of Health figures show that over 17% of the 121,000 beds in NHS hospitals are taken up by the elderly. The simple installation of an alarm could keep your loved one out of the hospital and in the comfort of their own home. This in turn reduces the number of beds taken up at hospitals, whilst ensuring your family member receives immediate care and a speedy assessment of their situation, if the time comes. They will never have to be at the back of the line again. 

>span class="s1">Many people thinking about investing in a personal alarm may imagine a bulky, irritating, even humiliating pendant chained around the neck. However, with Helpline’s discreet, customisable pendent range, this could not be further from the truth! Our stylish designs are designed for ease of use and their lightweight material means that they can be worn discreetly around your loved one’s neck or wrist, giving them the choice of how to wear it whilst ensuring that it is always accessible should they need it. 

This is just a handful of the many, many reasons why you might consider investing in a personal alarm. They can help improve the lives of you and your loved ones, and in many circumstances even save them. For more information visit our information page.
