In-home Care Solana Beach Waterproof Pendant

A Waterproof Alert Pendant Is Available Now

In-home Care in Solana Beach Likes the Idea of the GreatCall Splash

In-home care in Solana Beach knows that the most dangerous room of the house, at least for seniors, is the bathroom. Its hard, slippery surfaces make it difficult for the elderly to stay on their feet and to get up if they fall. And while personal emergency alert pendants are great tools, seniors usually have to leave them out of reach while bathing. A new device released by industry leader GreatCall has an answer to this dilemma.

Waterproof Protection

The GreatCall Splash is a simple-looking device, easy to use with a single emergency button and two-way communication with a trained agent. The devices is also equipped with GPS technology, so that the agent can dispatch help to the location without getting directions from the victim. But the unique benefit of this pendant is that it is waterproof. Seniors can keep it on their person while showering or bathing, and the water doesn’t affect its functioning ability.

Filling an Important Gap

It is possible to keep a non-waterproof emergency alert device near the shower, but it takes some preparation and care. Even if the device were placed safely away from water, it could easily short circuit or stop working while a senior tries to use it during an emergency. The GreatCall Splash is just as convenient and reliable in the shower as in any other area of the house, taking pressure off seniors in the event of a fall or other emergency.

A Useful Complement to In-home Care in San Diego County

If your elderly loved one receives visits from in-home care in San Diego County, that takes a great burden off your mind. But if there are still times when no one is in the house except a senior, a tool like the GreatCall Splash ensures that he can always get help when he needs it most.
