The independence that comes with living or working alone can be a wonderful thing, but have you ever found yourself in a situation where you felt a little unsafe or vulnerable?
Something as simple as a fall when you are home alone could spell difficulties. What would you do if you couldn’t reach the phone to summon help? Are your family within range to come and help you immediately, if you needed them? If you spend a significant amount of time alone, no doubt these questions will have crossed your mind.
Or perhaps you enjoy walking or travelling on your own in remote areas, which is ,of course, an exciting and exhilarating way to explore our beautiful countryside, but, again, have you ever considered the implications of getting into difficulty in an isolated area. How would you reach help if you needed to?
There are a number of precautions you can take, such as always letting others know your movements and whereabouts, but that, alone, may not be enough to get you out of trouble.
The great news is that we live in a world where we have the technology available to help us deal with these situations. There are a range of different solutions available so that, no matter the situation, there is a something out there to help you.
For example, did you know that there are wearable clips, pendants and buttons that can actually detect if you have a fall, get your whereabouts by using GPS, have two way communications with our 24/7 monitoring service built in and incorporate a panic button!
If living alone is something that causes you concern and fear of break-in or falls or similar situations is something that you worry about, you may benefit from having a panic button located in your home or, indeed, worn as a pendant when you are alone.
