Alerting Devices

Items such as flashing and vibrating clocks and telephones, visible doorbell signallers, and specialized smoke and burglar alarms can reduce stress by keeping your loved one aware of important (and not-so-important) events. 

Visible, audible, and tactile devices can alert seniors to:

  • Time
  • Doorbells
  • Telephones
  • Smoke alarms
  • Status of ovens and other appliances
  • Any sudden noise
