Fall Sensors for the Elderly from Taking Care

Last updated: 06/07/2023

Falls can have serious consequences for older adults, particularly if they live alone and may be unable to get help if they trip or fall. A fall alarm can provide peace of mind that help is available in an emergency and give customers the reassurance they need to remain independent and secure in their own homes.

The fall sensor is built into the alarm pendant that is worn like a watch or around the neck. When it detects a serious fall with a heavy impact, this triggers a call to one of Taking Care’s 24 hour alarm monitoring centres. The alarm monitoring team will call the person to check they are OK. If there is no response or help is needed, the team will call the emergency services or the person’s loved ones.

The alarm pendant also has an emergency button on it, which can be pressed by the wearer if they feel unwell, are in distress or need help.

For people without a telephone landline, a digital landline-free version of the fall alarm is available.
