Where The Needs Of Others Come First · Available 24x7 For Emergencies
In-home caregivers provide a sense of security not only to your elderly relative, but to you as well. Just knowing someone is on hand in the event of an emergency makes living apart less stressful for everyone. Most seniors don’t have access to 24-hour care, however, which leaves them alone and vulnerable after dark.
One concern is fire, especially for elders who don’t hear well. A typical home smoke detector just isn’t loud enough to alert a sleeping senior to a fire, but Gentex offers a solution. Designed specifically for the hearing impaired, the Gentex 90dB Strobe Smoke Alarm emits a louder tone than most other devices. In addition, it features a 177-candela strobe to provide a visual warning. The combined alert power of these two systems gives your loved one a greater chance of escaping a fire than does a standard smoke detector. The Gentex 90dB Strobe Smoke Alarm is hard wired for maximum reliability and comes with a one-year warrantee.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, only about 25% of fires occur between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m., but late-night fires are responsible for nearly 50% of all fire deaths. Having a reliable smoke alarm that’s able to wake your hearing-impaired loved one is the best way to prevent disaster, and it’s critical for those times when in-home caregivers can’t be there.
