Age NI Enterprises urges older people to stay safe this winter

As the clocks go back and the nights start drawing in, people naturally start to stay in more to avoid the cold weather and dark nights. This can increase feelings of being cut off and concern about what might happen in an emergency.

Age NI Enterprises is reminding those who feel they need additional peace of mind that a personal alarm system can make them feel safer and still able to live their lives as normal.

Age NI Personal Alarms provide reassurance to almost 9,000 people every year and the 24-hour emergency response system can be installed at homes in the UK, where possible within 48 hours of the initial enquiry.

Ron Warwick, Age NI Enterprises General Manager explains, 'One touch of the button of an Age NI Personal Alarm connects to a dedicated Response Centre, which is staffed by professionally trained operators 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

'The alarm system operates a two-way speech link to enable the person who has raised the alarm to talk to an operator within seconds. The operator can then contact the chosen key holder - a friend, neighbour or relative - who will visit and offer assistance. If there is no contact available, the emergency services will be contacted.'

The alarm is lightweight and can be worn around the neck or on the wrist. It is waterproof so can be worn whether in the bathroom, kitchen or garden.

To find out more about the Age NI Personal Alarm Service or to arrange a no obligation demonstration in your own home visit Age NI Enterprises at 10 College Street, Belfast or call 0808 100 4545.
