You can usually order everything online and have it shipped to the location of your choice but make sure that you review the specifications before finalising your choice.
The most common form of medical alerts is the pendant that can be worn comfortably around the neck with a push button and speaker for the two-way communication. If you are someone who does not wear necklaces then consider the watch option that has the exact same features but is worn on the wrist. This may be a preferred style for men since it is something that they are already used to. Both should be water resistant and lightweight for maximum effectiveness. Another idea to consider is to have panic alert buttons in strategic locations around the home just in case the user forgot or took off their personal alarm. This helps to ensure that the majority of scenarios are covered and emergency help can be accessed no matter where they are inside the home, or outside in the garden.
