View Full Version : distress alert button

17th July 2011, 18:18
Does anyone know where to get a distress alert button - I am choking quite frequently and if my partner is in another room I cant shout to him for help me and as I can't move its a little scary??? Ive looked on the net and can only find rape alarm type thing and dont want that sort of high decibel screech but something that makes an audible but less aggressive alarm.

Hi Vanessa,

Sorry, only just seen your post although I check in several times a day. Many people use a wireless door bell or wireless baby monitors, simple but effective.

Hope this helps

We use wireless doorbell too. I am still able to get out into the garden but have fallen over a couple of times and can't get up. So now take the doorbell buzzer with me - means I can have some independence and still get on and do something I enjoy.
