Wandering is a common behaviour associated with dementia. Sadly, many people who are not found within 24hrs are severely hurt or die. Our 'Lola' dementia location device with GPS can be used to support people prone to wandering. It's got worldwide coverage capabilities and is monitored 24 hours a day.

...or give us a call with any questions you have.
Most emergency call buttons, whether pendants or wristbands are designed to be relatively easy to press. However for the very frail elderly or anyone with limited dexterity including those with Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson ’s disease, the strength and co-ordination needed to trigger the button is sometimes not enough.Where this is the case, we recommend using our ‘Easypress’ adapter which fits over our Bosch Tx Transmitter emergency call button. For people with weak hands or lack of co-ordination, the Easypress adaptor is a cheap and safe way to ensure they are able to activate their call button when needed.
The slim Easypress adapter is a transparent plastic cover. It can be fixed on the arm of a wheelchair, armchair, attached to the side of a table or worn as a pendant.
When placed over a portable alarm button the Easypress adapter is larger than a standard emergency call button and therefore requires less co-ordination to press for help.
What may not come across as obviously by looking at the Easypress adapter, is just how little force is required to press it. It requires only a delicate press making it suitable for many people who are too weak or do not have the co-ordination to press the standard emergency button. This is because the design of the adapter works on the principles of leverage, meaning much less effort is needed to activate it.
If you fall at home or need help urgently and can’t reach a telephone, you just push the Easypress adapter fitted over your alarm button and it will automatically connect you to our 24/7 CareLink Monitoring Centre in Ireland. After speaking with you through the two-way speech unit and giving reassurance, our trained CareLink Operators, we will send whatever help is needed. This could be through calling a member of your family or a neighbour to assist you. If the situation is more serious, our Operators will call an ambulance immediately, and let you know it’s on the way.
As with our standard pendant alarm buttons, the Easypress adapter can also be used to answer incoming telephone calls, allowing a hands free telephone call through your telecare base unit providing you have a compatible base unit.
The Easypress Adapter from TASK is now only €20. Please call or email us to place an order with us today.

With Autumn having now arrived and Winter fast approaching, we would encourage all elderly people and everyone else with a pendant alarm to make use of their personal alarm system. The personal alarms help people stay safe at home. They can make a huge difference to a person’s confidence and bring peace of mind to family members.
At TASK we know first-hand what a difference the alarm buttons make, because our CareLink Operators answer calls from hundreds of our clients in Ireland and the UK every day. These calls come into our 24 Hour Monitoring Centre in County Meath, when people need urgent help at home. Thankfully we can give immediate assistance and reassurance to those who have pressed the personal alarm button. We do this by contacting a named keyholder or relative.
Unfortunately people sometimes forget to wear their personal alarm button and have no way of calling for help when they can’t reach a telephone. So if you have a personal alarm, please remember to wear it at all times. And remember, if you’ve lost your pendant alarm button or wristband, it can be easily replaced by contacting us.
We want all our clients to stay safe and enjoy the Autumn season, knowing that there is always someone there for them at the touch of a button. This really can make all the difference, especially if you live alone. Your personal alarm button can also give real peace of mind to your family members. Because they know that if you have a fall or accident at home, help will be on hand quickly.
If you don't already have one, you can now buy your personal alarm from our online store and it can be posted directly to your home address in Ireland, the UK or further afield. We can deliver monitored personal alarms or unmonitored versions, both of which come with pendant/wristband button included. Why not order yours today? Full installation details are included and we also provide 24/7 technical support.
Alternatively, if you want us to install the unit for you, or for further information about our 24/7 Personal Alarm Service, please contact us directly.
