Personal alarms for the elderly

How the personal alarm service works

The personal alarm base unit detects when the pendant or wristband alarm is pressed and quickly connects to our response centre:

  • When you press the alarm button, the response team will know who you are and will have access to any medical information you have shared with us.
  • The response team will try and speak with you over the alarm’s speaker to assess the situation. The trained and experienced response team can provide help and advice or contact your keyholders or the emergency services on your behalf.
  • Even if you are not able to speak, by pressing the alarm button we'll know who you are and where you are calling from so can direct support to you very quickly.
  • The alarms work up to 50 metres (160 ft) away from the base unit and are water resistant so you can be confident of support when you require it.
  • The alarms can be worn discreetly as a wristband or pendant.
