    Alarm systems

    Hi there,

    I have been looking for some advice regarding panic alarm systems.

    I am living with a relative who has recently been diagnosed with heart failure and her memory is a little confused as well. Whilst we are all off work during Christmas, we have been able to ensure that someone is here at all times, however we will need to return to work in January, and have been looking at alarm systems just in case she feels unwell whilst we are out.

    I have seen several types of alarm system, however no comparison site and was wondering if anyone had any experience with a particular company good or bad. They all look very similar at the moment, but as you can imagine, we want to ensure the best possible service.

    Any advice would be most welcome

    Contact your local Social Services Adult Care as they are able to provide one at a small weekly fee. May be worth asking for a care assessment too as they could recommend aids or even provide some that will help.

    Hi Wilderheart,

    Thank you for your enquire. We agree with Beau's advice, contacting your local Adult Social Services and getting an assessment is the best way to start. If they are not able to provide the equipment or you would like to purchase them yourself, then please have a look at the link below for more information about telecare systems and suppliers:

    Please let us know if you have any more questions.

    Kind regards,
    DLF Team
