Holiday cottages with a panic button

self-catering cottages with an emergency button to call for helpAll kinds of safety considerations are made when someone is elderly or disabled. We cannot plan for every possible eventuality but we can for some of them. Taking an elderly or disabled relative on holiday requires a certain number of measures. A panic button in a holiday cottage tends to give people a sense of security, the knowledge that someone will come running if it is pressed. These are mostly seen in bathrooms.




Personal panic buttons and emergency calls

Older people sometimes sign up for personal panic button services. On pressing a panic button hanging on a chain around their neck, it connects (like a mobile phone) with an operator who will enquire about the situation and organise assistance by contacting nominated key holders. Being on holiday may be a bit more problematic because an elderly person could be on holiday miles away from the key holders and the operations centre should be informed and given suitable phone numbers of people who will be around.

Relatives may feel happier about leaving an elderly or disabled person alone for an evening if they have a panic button. It may then be possible to have a night out at the theatre or restaurant.

Keep calm

The British are known for their stiff upper lip and calm demeanour in all situations. A panic button means that help can be quickly on hand so that someone else can panic and act on your behalf. A moment of humour:

What’s the difference between stress, tension and panic?

Stress is what you feel when the wife is pregnant,

Tension is what you feel when the girlfriend is pregnant, and

Panic is what overwhelms you when both are pregnant.
