Our alarms for bathroom emergencies make it simpler for people to receive any help that they might need without having to sacrifice any of their privacy.

Falls

When an elderly person falls, it can cause serious problems. Breaking your hip may sound painful but the truth is that most elderly people that break their hip never fully regain their quality of life pre-fall. The most important thing is to ensure that if a loved one or a patient is to have a fall, that you can react as quickly as possible to give them every chance. Our fall alarms give you a clear indication after a fall and allow you to deal with the problem promptly.

Whilst everyone is entitled to their privacy, this may be a worry for carers as the bathroom can be a danger zone for falls. A pull cord system allows the user to retain their privacy and independence, whilst being able to easily alert someone from another room should they require assistance.

However, if you have a hearing impairment, a standard sounding alarm isnít always enough. Care Alarms provides a range of specialised smoke detectors designed with the hard of hearing in mind, able to alert the user through vibration and strobe signals, as well as through sound.

Sound

Sound

For the hard of hearing, everyday situations can prove difficult. From having to turn the TV volume up really high, to more urgent issues like not being able to hear the smoke alarm, hearing loss can put a real strain on you and the rest of your household.

Stepping on a mat

Stepping on a mat

Dementia can cause huge emotional strain, both for its sufferers and for those who care for them. One particularly distressing result of the condition is the patientís tendency to wander, which puts them at risk of getting lost and harming themselves. Sensor mats work by triggering an alert when someone steps on them. This allows you to be notified should your patient or loved one leave a room or the house, contributing towards a safer environment.

Temperature

Temperature

A standard fire alarm can usually detect smoke, but at Care Alarms we offer devices which are also receptive to temperature. Whether itís an optical alarm, able to sense fires in the early stages, or an ionisation alarm more effective at identifying rapid flames, heat detectors can save lives. These systems can also be suitable for the hard of hearing, so your hearing loss does not have to compromise your safety at home.

Toilet related incidents, like bed wetting, can happen to anyone. Despite this, they may still cause embarrassment and discomfort, particularly if you are more prone as is the case with children and the elderly. But you donít need to suffer in silence. A number of products from Care Alarms can help, from sensor mats to detect excess moisture in bed, to pull cords which allow you to call for help when using the toilet.

Walking

Walking

If you care for someone at risk of getting lost, or perhaps someone who lives alone and suffers from memory loss, the act of walking can be used to your advantage. Sensor mats, for instance, can activate an alert if walked across to inform a carer that someone has left a room. Similarly, walking can trigger a spoken reminder from a motion activated device. Products like these are especially useful for dementia sufferers and are available from Care Alarms.

Wandering

Wandering

Wandering is commonly associated with dementia sufferers. Itís not uncommon for a patient to walk somewhere, only to become confused, disorientated and at risk of harm. To entirely erase the risk of wandering would sacrifice your loved ones privacy and independence, but Care Alarms offer products which find a compromise. From sensor mats to trackers, you can monitor your loved ones movements without having to be glued to their side.

Water Overflow

Water Overflow

Whether you have dementia or are just prone to getting distracted from the bath running, a water level alarm can be really useful.
