What is a Safety Pendant?
Simply put, a safety pendant or a fall alarm is a device for the elderly to be able to get help fast when the need arises.
When the SOS button is deployed, the device alerts family and friends that their loved one needs help.
It first send out a text message with a location of the user and then follows a few seconds later with a call.
This allows the loved one to access and call emergency services. It is also advisable to install a locked box outside so access is easy.
Great Savings to be Had
The seniors card WA website also has some great local businesses offering seniors some savings on certain products and services spanning a wide industry range, which means, you’re being supported for just being you.
When I looked I saw some places I often already use so would definately be buying from them but, I must admit, the site was a tad slow when moving from one page to the next which is no big deal as I can always call them.
