A Typical Single Room Case Study

John wears an emergency alert bracelet - most of the time, at least during most days, however consistent wearing of it in the bathroom & bedroom in the morning & evenings can be particularly challenging. John's family are considering a single AngelAlert system in the bathroom to provide additional protection & peace of mind. A single AngelAlert sensor & power source installation & calibration costs €350 plus a monthly fee of €30 to cover data costs & Key Habit Change monitoring. Additional sensors can be added at any time.

 

A Typical Whole Home Case Study

Joan has been diagnosed with dementia with a higher risk of falling & injury but wishes to live independently at home in her community - supported with 20 hrs of personal home care per week. Joan's family are however concerned of her falling alone, risking distress, serious injury or worse & are considering a whole home AngelAlert system to provide peace of mind to all & to enable Joan's wishes.
.
The family compared care home fees with the provision of professional homecare supported with a AngelAlert system. The once-off AngelAlert installation & monthly fees of a typical 5 zone* system were spread across the first year.

 Each individual case will differ in the level of supports required. Additional supports such as accessibility & bathroom modifications plus ancillary supportive technology are common. The following table includes €21,500 of such costs applied to the same case study  - resulting again in a significant saving. But perhaps the biggest saving is enabling Joan to independently live at home within her community safely - simply priceless.
