My elderly mother is both frail and failing - since early March I have been with her full time. Now she's bed bound and can only reach the commode when required.

Until recently she's been able to use her mobile to reach me within the house which has worked well. Now she's much too shaky to manage this - last night she wasn't well and couldn't phone me. Happily all is OK, however this is now a worry.

Is there any kind of in-house easy to use alert system specifically for this kind of situation?
I have done an online search though am overwhelmed with the 'choice' and would appreciate advice from anyone who has been faced with this.
