Wireless caregiver alert systems allow patients or the elderly person being cared for to alert nurses or caregivers at home if they need help. The system is in the form of alarm buttons or pendants that are paired with separate pager or receiver units. While they’re fairly simple devices, wireless caregiver pagers can make life much easier for both caregivers and their patients.
When the alarm button is pressed, it sends a signal to the receiver or pager unit that sounds an alert to alert the caregiver. An in-home caregiver call button system is especially useful to the elderly and disabled if they need help after falling or need assistance in going to the bathroom. In a home setting, this prevents the need for yelling across rooms. In a healthcare facility, a pager can allow older adults or patients to obtain assistance without inconveniencing other patients or residents.
