Elder care and technology have evolved dramatically in recent years, and as a result, so too have the ways that senior citizens monitor their own health and wellbeing. Specifically, personal alarms for the elderly—like those offered here, at the highly reputable and trustworthy SureSafe—are more popular today than they have been at any other point in history, and if recent trends are any indication, this popularity will only continue to grow in the coming years.

What's more, is that the increased prevalence of personal alarms is hardly a byproduct of chance or coincidence. On the contrary, more seniors are turning to personal alarms to assure their comfort, safety, and peace of mind because there are so very many reasons to do so.

To inspire uncertain and/or sceptical seniors and their families to invest in wellbeing and protection from unforeseen incidents, let's take a look at why so many (previously uninterested) elderly individuals are turning to personal alarms.

Lower Costs

Here at SureSafe, an emphasis is placed on affordability. In the past, cutting-edge personal alarms for the elderly (those offered by other companies) cost an arm and a leg—an amount that was far too expensive for the majority of potential clients to afford.

Today, thanks to technological innovations and our distinct commitment to ensuring the value and satisfaction of customers, personal alarm systems can be bought for value-heavy prices. Now, safety and optimal quality of life don't have to come at an unbeatable price.

Increased Quality

As a general rule, the overall quality of elderly alarms has also increased by leaps and bounds in recent years. Contemporary tech devices are more reliable, efficient, and responsive than those of the past—including those of just a decade ago. Consequently, personal alarms are now more or less a guaranteed safety mechanism, in the sense that if and when trouble does arise, help can be received in a matter of minutes.

Less Stigma, More Automation

Home automation and stigma have increased and decreased, respectively, in recent years. Now, a tremendous number of individuals utilize artificial intelligence technology, ordering products and managing their schedules with their voice. Lights can be turned on and off with these smart devices, and countless other examples of home automation exist.

As a result, the previous stigma (which was minuscule in the first place) surrounding personal alarms has dissipated. There's nothing wrong with ensuring personal safety and peace of mind with tech—in fact, almost everyone does so today!

Numerous Options

In the past, personal safety alarms came in one form: a button on a necklace or bracelet that was to be pushed in case of emergency. That was well and good, and it helped a lot of people, but recent innovations have greatly expanded the variety and style of products offered by leading companies.

SureSafe, for example, presently offers 24/7 Connect Anywhere Alarms, which track seniors' location via GPS and function both at home and on the road; TalkSafe, a highly responsive unit that allows users to speak to response centre officials with the press of a button; multiple devices that watch for and automatically report falls; a stylish wristwatch alarm that can be discreetly worn by users; and much, much more.

In short, personal safety alarms for seniors have become more common and accepted because revolutionary companies and dedicated professionals have gone above and beyond the call of duty to ensure the comfort and wellbeing of the elderly.

Hopefully, this information made clear that there's never been a better time than today to invest in a personal safety alarm. The quality is unparalleled, the options are diverse, the acceptance is great, and the cost is minimal. Don't hesitate to reach out to a SureSafe representative.
