Question and answer
describe ways to ensure the individual can summon help when alone during personal care
There is wide range of personal alarms and other emergency response equipment available to those who live on their own, and they can take many forms . [ Some might depend on someone being nearby - for example in another room or next door Telecare alarms, known as community alarm services, are very useful for people who live alone. They work through a base unit in your home, which is connected
to your phone line. You can press a button on the unit or on a pendant that you wear around your neck. This connects you to an operator who can arrange the help you need. Some telecare alarms have movement sensors that can detect if someone has fallen and cannot get up, or leaves a certain area. Those alarms will be activated automatically, so the person does not need to do anything to summon help. ( Another device worth considering is the mobile phone, these can be programmed with emergency contact numbers, at least one of which could be entered on speed dial, so that all the person at risk has to do is press a certain number, ie, 1, on the keypad. Then there is the emergency cord or panic button, which could be linked to a call centre who will alert the emergency services if necessary ]
