Personal alarms provide people with a way to call for help after a fall or in the case of a medical emergency.  The alarm is usually worn as a pendant or watch, and when activated, can call nominated contacts and/or emergency services.

Once activated, the wearer of the device can communicate directly with their emergency contact or monitoring service.

Who are they for?

People who might benefit from having a personal alarm could include those who:

  • Are aged over 65 years
  • Live alone
  • Have had a previous fall
  • Have a chronic medical condition
  • Take multiple medications
  • Have a fear of falling
  • Are incontinent
  • Have foot problems
  • Have a visual impairment
  • Have poor balance

How to get a personal alarm

If you are aged over 65 and registered with My Aged Care, you can request to be referred for a personal alarm.

The assessors will then arrange for a referral to us for a personal alarm assessment and one of our allied health assistants will contact you directly to arrange an appointment in your home.
