Finding the Right Care Call Pager Kit for You

Thursday, 28 January 2016

Now that you know that you want to use the Care Call Pager as your Care Call Receiver, it’s time to decide what your main concern is in terms of care. 

If you’re not sure you want to go with the pager as your Care Call receiver, head over to our blog on finding the right Care Call Alarm Kit to start again.

Step Two: Choosing a Main Sensor

Please select what you are interested in detecting below, or scroll down to find out more about each option. You can add more sensors later, so this isn’t an absolute selection.

Carbon Monoxide

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a deadly gas which is odourless and colourless, so there’s no way to detect it on your own. There are a lot of things in the home which can lead to a CO leak, so it’s vital that you have a way to detect it. 

The Care Call Carbon Monoxide Alarm monitors the levels of CO in the air and will alert the pager if levels become dangerous. This is ideal if you’re working in a large home and you can’t always be in earshot of all the CO alarms. By alerting you wherever you are, it enables you to quickly react to the issue for the safety of those under your care.

Chair Leaving

Chair falls are a dangerous risk for the elderly – not being able to stand up safely can cause elderly people to fall, potentially causing serious injuries. It’s therefore incredibly important that you do everything you can to prevent them from occurring.

The Care Call Chair Leaving Mat detects when someone tries to get up from their chair and alerts the pager, so you can quickly come to their aid and help them stand.

Movement

Wandering is a big problem for elderly people, and can be incredibly dangerous. Wandering can easily lead to falls, which can cause serious, life-threatening injuries in the elderly, so it’s vital that you know people are up and about when they shouldn’t be. The Care Call range features several sensors which can be used to help with wandering.

The Care Call Magnetic Door Monitor detects when a door or window is opened and alerts the pager, making it an incredibly versatile tool for detecting movement. Not only can it be used for alerting you when someone leaves their room, it can also be used for telling you if someone enters an area they shouldn’t, like a certain room or cupboard.

The Care Call Under Carpet Pressure Pad detects when someone steps on it and alerts the pager, making it great for use in doorways or at the side of beds to tell you if people are getting up and moving when they shouldn’t.

The Care Call PIR Movement Monitor uses infrared to detect people moving, and alerts the pager to alert you.  It’s ideal for use down the side of a bed, and because it uses infrared it won’t be set off by inanimate objects like duvets trailing off the bed, reducing false alarms.
