Factors to Consider When Choosing an Elderly Fall Alarm

Fall alarms can offer families peace of mind that their loved ones are being looked after while at home or out and about. With so many products on the market designed to promote safety, selecting the right one can feel overwhelming. However, with some research into the available options, families can be well-equipped to make an informed decision that’s best for everyone. It is important to be aware of the following factors to consider when choosing an elderly fall alarm for your loved one.

Ease of Use
When selecting an alarm, it’s crucial to consider its ease of use. Your elderly loved one may not have the technological know-how to operate a complicated device. That’s why an alarm that’s simple to use is the best option. The easier it is to operate, the more likely it will be used in an emergency. An accident can happen at any time, so choosing one that is straightforward could make all the difference in preventing a serious injury.
With our Isaac Fall Alarm, there is no set up required or any need for installation. When it is purchased, the buyer will receive an application form by email which captures the details of the person using the device and the emergency contacts.
It will then be pre-configured and sent out by courier. When the Isaac Fall Alarm is received it only needs to be turned on. A nice, easy process for everyone involved.
A product that is prone to malfunctioning or providing false alarms can lead to unnecessary panic and even a loss of trust. By providing a constant sense of security, a reliable alarm can give both you and your elderly loved one peace of mind and can make a world of difference in keeping your loved one safe.
With the Isaac Fall Alarm, we designed it with a sense of trust in mind. When the battery is running low, there is a voice prompt to charge it. This means you never have to worry about it running out unexpectedly. The device requires charging every 4-5 days and it has an in-built accelerometer which can detect the impact of a fall, giving you the reassurance that it knows when one occurs.
We recommend pressing the alarm button for help in all eventualities, leading to emergency services or your circle of care contacts. This allows multiple family members to stay involved and to be kept up to date with instant in app notifications.
It is important to remember that each person and situation is unique when it comes to choosing the correct product. Care should be taken to ensure that the right one matches the specific needs of your loved one, whether it is for recovery, long-term care, or at-home assistance.
If you’re considering one, take time to assess your circumstances and consult with professionals when needed. It is vital to have the right people available and ready to help, which is exactly what Isaac Care provides with our dedicated team ready to assist, support and provide peace of mind for families and their loved ones.
