Home care caregiver alert pagers allow patients to alert nurses or caregivers if they need help. The system is in the form of alarm buttons or pendants with separate pager or receiver units. While they’re fairly simple devices. The systems 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. In-home caregiver alert pagers are useful to the older people. Especially 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.
