Complete peace of mind with ADT’s Health & Wellness solutions
Taking care of your elderly loved ones is important, but you also don’t want to interfere with their independence. ADT’s range of personal alarms for seniors are frequently used throughout private homes and residential care facilities to provide families with peace of mind in a reliable and non-intrusive way.
How do personal alarm devices work?
Personal alarms for the elderly are typically small, wearable devices that can be pressed at any time to alert others that they are in distress. They are typically used by seniors to call for help when they’ve had a fall but may be used for any emergency. ADT’s NevaAlone Alarms and Emergency Call Units are designed to be easily accessible so that no matter what happens, your elderly relative has no trouble calling for help.
ADT NevaAlone comprises a medical unit and wristwatch or pendant. ADT Emergency Call Units are another personal alarm option that can be worn on the wrist, around the neck, or on a belt. All our personal alarm devices allow your elderly loved one to call for assistance anytime at the push of a button.
When the button is pressed, the device will contact our 24-hour ADT monitoring centre like a telephone. Through a two-way speaker, our team can determine the situation and take the appropriate steps to contact designated emergency contacts or emergency services if needed.
If the ADT team can’t communicate with your loved one through the speaker, they will follow the established emergency procedure.
At ADT, we understand false alarms can happen. Each personal alarm device has a cancel button that can be pressed to stop the call, or you can simply explain to our operators it was a mistake – no harm done!
How effective are personal alarms for the elderly?
Kiwis have relied on personal alarms for decades because they’re a proven method of minimising harm and saving lives. Mobile phones may seem like a simple workaround, but for an elderly relative in an emergency, a simple one-touch button is far more dependable for getting help as quickly as possible.
Personal alarms are a sensible precaution to invest in the safety of your elderly loved ones, even if they never get used. ADT’s modern and aesthetic wearable personal alarms ensure that your loved one always has access to help without the device being a burdensome eyesore.
Is a personal alarm system difficult to install?
Not at all – ADT’s personal alarm systems come with easy-to-follow instructions. The ADT team will do a free home assessment before you get your alarm and set it up after you buy it.
Are personal alarms just for the elderly?
No, ADT’s personal alarms can be used to provide peace of mind and independence for any loved when, whether they are elderly or live with a medical condition or disability. Contact us to discuss your needs so we can help you find the right product.
