Fall alarm

A personal alarm equipped with automatic fall detectors offers the ultimate peace of mind for anyone who might be at risk of falling in their own home.

The nature of falls means it’s not always possible to reach a button, so this system ensures you won’t endure long periods lying on the floor.

Reassurance for those with increased risk of falls

There are many conditions that can leave an individual with a predisposition to falling, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to stay in your home. A fall alarm can be an appropriate solution for people with the following diagnoses:

  • Dementia
  • Frailty
  • Epilepsy
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Limited mobility

Care Hub Plus

The CareTech personal alarm solution that includes fall detectors is the Care Hub Plus. Small and lightweight, the fall detector is integrated into a pendant alarm, and monitors change in direction or speed to determine if the wearer has experienced a fall. Its functionality also includes sending an alert if the individual hasn’t moved for a prolonged period of time.

A mode to fit your needs

Not everyone who uses a fall alarm has the same needs, so the Care Hub Plus has four different settings, so you can select the one most suited to you. Choose from:

  • Standard
  • Extra sensitive
  • Epilepsy
  • Cognitive difficulties

The pendant’s clever ‘shake to cancel’ feature can be used to call off an alert if the device has been activated unnecessarily.

Alerts loved ones or our monitoring team

Should the fall detector identify an incident, your loved ones will immediately be contacted via the SECOM Care app on their smartphone. Should they be uncontactable, personnel at our 24-hour monitoring centre will assess the situation and call emergency services if they’re required.
