Medical Alarms & Medical Alarm Systems For Seniors & The Elderly
Medical alert systems are currently becoming very popular among senior citizens. These medical alarm systems, usually in the shape of jewellery, are worn by the elderly so they can send a signal and indicate that they are having an emergency simply by pressing a button on their pendant. This definitely removes the demand for a telephone in cases when one is out of grasp.
Aussie Group Security is able to offer assistance and support in this specific area and provide a tailor-made solution for your individual needs Australia wide.
Sending Signals For Assistance
Typically, the device will produce a beeping sound to inform the senior that assistance is already on its way. Some systems even allow the user to communicate verbally with the operator while waiting for help. These medical alarm systems, or commonly known as Personal Emergency Response Systems, are usually configured wherein any outgoing calls are immediately terminated and an emergency call is started on the telephone. Essentially, medical alert devices are alarm systems intended to inform health care specialists about emergencies.
Our Process Of Notification and Response
The alarms, in the shape of wireless transmitters, are to be activated during times of emergency. Aussie Group Security handles your medical alarm alerts by forwarding your call straight to our response team. You can also have it set up to notify significant others upon activation. Medical staff are then sent to the place where the signal is to attend to the request.
A lot of senior citizens are living alone and may be left helpless should an emergency arise. For seniors suffering from debilitating health conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, or Parkinson’s disease, the medical alert devices will surely be of great help to them. Usually, individuals suffering from these ailments tend to forget vital information such as their names or even where they live.
What Happens If I Can’t Get Up
Your specific alert system can also help if you are suffering from movement related sickness. An exact example of situations wherein medical alarms are very useful can be seen in a famous advertisement wherein a senior says, “I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up”. Already lacking the agility to help themselves, senior citizens usually fall.
In cases where the seniors are left alone by their relatives, a copy of the housekey should be given to a trusted neighbor or a system provider. This would enable the emergency responders to enter the residence should the senior be incapacitated and cannot let the emergency crew in. For security purposes, the keys are kept in protected places and are usually marked with numbers.
Using Your Medical Alarm As A Passive Alarm
There are actually other ways on how the medical alarm is used. It can be utilized as a passive alarm, wherein the elderly will turn on the alarm a couple of times in a day to inform others that nothing’s wrong. This simply means that if the alarm is not active for a certain pre-determined span of time, It is then assumed that there is something wrong.
The emergency medical personnel will then call the person to check if there is something wrong. If they cannot reach the person, they will assume that there is something wrong and send emergency response immediately.
