Personal alarms play an important role in an elderly’s life. Personal alarms can be worn as a necklace or wrist band so the user can easily press the panic button for immediate assistance. Even though personal alarms were first introduced in the UK during the 1980’s era, there’s still a big need for it as the number of elderly requiring home care grows.
Here’s a list of personal alarms for elderly available on the market.
