Hi I am a newbie so bear with me. My partner may have dementia but still having tests. As he falls a lot I thought of a personal alarm so I would not be worried when I have to go out. My problem is do I go for the ones that you pay a monthly or annual fee or the ones that you just buy the unit, but not sure how they work. Any advice would be helpful so thanks in advance.

My Dad had one through our local council it was really cheap just like pence a week and worked wonderfully he rarely had to use it but I think it was every week they did a test to make sure it was working ok A wonderful invention x
