What are the benefits of a personal alarm?
Life can throw you a curve ball in an instant. What start as a relaxed morning in the garden can end up with a fall – or near fall – that limits your independence or dents your confidence. A Feros Care personal alarm means help is just the press of a button away.
A personal alarm also provides peace of mind to your family and carers. They want to know you’re safe, and if something does happen, that help is readily accessible.
Who are personal alarms for?
Personal alarms aren’t only for falls, they can also help people who:
- would like a distress alarm in case of an emergency
- are unsteady on their feet
- live alone
- are visually impaired
- get up often during the night
- have a health condition such as Parkinson’s, MS, severe arthritis or epilepsy
A personal alarm can be used by anyone in your home, should you need assistance.

Passive infrared sensors use heat to detect movement.
A personal alarm for everyone
We offer a range of alarms, so that you can customise a solution that best suits you. Whether you’re looking for an alarm to use at home, or one to use while you’re out and about; we have a personal alarm to help you feel safe and secure.
The Care@Home Basic includes 24/7 emergency response monitoring, a base alarm unit and a standard emergency pendant. It’s a great cost-effective and easy-to-use solution; additional monitoring devices are able to be added for more enhanced coverage.
The Care@Home Family includes 24/7 emergency response monitoring, a base alarm unit, two passive infrared sensors and one door sensor. It features basic passive monitoring and configurable rules around behaviour. The sensors are able to monitor if you’re waking up at your regular time each morning, or if you’ve left a door open (plus much more).
The Care@Home Pro includes 24/7 emergency response monitoring, a base alarm unit, a standard emergency pendant, five passive infrared sensors and two door sensors. This alarm is designed for a single home, alerts are generated when the user deviates from their predicted behaviour.
Our GPS Pendant is the ideal solution for people who are looking for flexibility and support on the go. It comes as a monitored solution – monitored by our response team 24/7, combined with 4G cellular and GPS location technology with two-way voice capability so that you’re able to call for assistance anywhere within cellular network coverage. Alternatively, if you don’t need 24/7 monitoring, we can setup the pendant to alert your contacts, who will receive a text alert with a GPS location when you press ‘SOS’. Your contacts can call the pendant at any time with two-way voice capability as well, or send a text message to ‘locate’ the pendant.
What are the costs of a personal alarm?
There are many ways to fund a personal alarm. If you are receiving government-funded home care services, ask our team or your service provider about including a Feros Care personal alarm in your package. This means you could have no out-of-pocket expenses. If you’re not receiving government-funded home care service, a personal alarm can also be funded privately.
