Panic button for the elderly
Safe home care
With Weenect Silver you can still take care of your loved one from a distance. They can alert you in case of an emergency using the red button on their panic alarm for the elderly; you can then quickly find them if necessary (whether at home or outside) thanks to the GPS tracking.
Your loved one can notify you in the event of problems (such as a fall at home or on the street for example), by pressing the SOS button on their elderly alarm. You receive alerts directly to your smartphone (via the mobile app) and can trigger a phone call; the medallion is equipped with a microphone and a speaker, so it works like a telephone.
Weenect has patented technology to alert all the carrier's caregivers at the same time. So as soon as the elderly SOS alarm button is pressed, each one is notified on their smartphone app. The connection is made to the first person to see the alert, who can thus take care of its resolution while the others are automatically alerted that the problem is being resolved. The best of technology serving our seniors.
For greater ease of use, there is no limit to the number of people who can connect to the same account. That means all family members can participate in communal action aimed at ensuring the safety of their loved one. Note that it is possible to obtain a tax reduction by filling out the personal services form. Check with the relevant associations as financial aid can vary from one country to another.
The fall alarm for the elderly has a complete GPS system indicating the position of your loved one, wherever they are (the device works without distance limit). You can thus help the carrier if they feel unwell. You always know where they are because they are wearing the pendant around their neck or in their pocket. The device is a true elderly tracker and Alzheimer's sufferers.
Does your loved one have to take journeys alone on the street despite their loss of independence? The emergency button for the elderly is equipped with a zone exit detector that alerts you when they enter or leave a defined perimeter. The automatic triggering of the alert allows rapid reaction by the emergency services in the event of a change in normal habits.
The careline has many disadvantages that a panic alarm for the elderly does not. Firstly, it relies on a monitoring centre which will be responsible, via a teleoperator, to notify the emergency services (such as the fire brigade) in the event of an emergency. It is therefore impersonal. But the care-line also poses a problem in the sense that it contents itself with security in the home, neglecting trips outside.
The same problem exists with most telecare products: the equipment is installed in the person's home, but there is nothing to support them when they go out. Being at home is a great comfort, but it should not become a prison. With our elderly alarm we guarantee the safety of your loved one at home and when they go out (because the GPS tracker for seniors is carried with them). If something happens, you will always be alerted and can act quickly.
When trying to ensure the safety of people living alone, it is usually done through the use of complicated and expensive installations. Our panic alarm is ready to use, which means there are no installation costs (nor administrative costs) and the setup is very easy. You avoid long hours of searching for the perfect place to install your loved one's telecare equipment, which often requires an electrical outlet, a telephone outlet and an adsl connection.
The elderly alarm bracelet promises much but has many drawbacks, with the result being that it is preferable to wear a device around the neck, on the belt or in the pocket. In particular, we can mention the short battery life (often less than a day), and the weight of the device for a person with reduced mobility (it becomes very difficult to move the arm without pain). In addition, the elderly SOS bracelet is a visible object that can considered stigmatising by your loved one.
The Weenect Silver pendant alarm requires a monthly subscription. This monthly fee for the service is explained by the need to open a telephone line to ensure communication between the fall alarm for the elderly and our servers, but first and foremost for the emergency call function to operate. The inscription file is completed online when the elderly alarm is registered, and takes just a few minutes. Cancellation is even easier through the use of a button in your online userspace.
