Ireland’s First Telecare Company TASK Community Care Expands with the Launch of Fully Owned Subsidiary “TASK Connect” in Lurgan, Northern Ireland


TASK Community Care, Ireland’s first telecare company and now a leading provider with over 45 years of experience in personal alarm technology, is excited to announce the opening of its fully owned UK subsidiary, TASK Connect, situated in Lurgan, Northern Ireland.

The establishment of TASK Connect not only signifies a significant milestone for TASK Community Care who provide 24-hour monitoring to tens of thousands of personal alarm clients, but also underscores the company’s dedication to strengthening its presence in the UK market. The decision to establish a fully owned subsidiary in Lurgan, reflects a strategic move to better serve the company’s expanding customer base in the United Kingdom.

A testament to this commitment is the introduction of a user-friendly online ordering process for monitored personal alarms and GPS trackers on the new TASK Connect website, aimed at enhancing operational efficiency and customer experience. This initiative showcases the company’s dedication to delivering accessible and efficient services to its UK clientele.

Managing Director of TASK Connect, Toni Bunting expanded on this, stating, “Our online product range will steadily expand as we solidify our presence in the UK market. Concurrently, our core focus is on refining operations, honed through years of dedicated service to TASK Community Care customers, ensuring an even more streamlined and customer-centric service for all our customers in the UK.”

This strategic and customer-oriented approach underscores the TASK group’s steadfast commitment to innovation, excellence, and meeting the evolving needs of its valued customer base.

Having recently secured a competitive tender with one of Northern Ireland’s eleven councils in its first year of operation, TASK Connect has swiftly established its success and effectiveness in the market. This significant achievement, realized through collaboration with its Irish counterpart TASK Community Care, not only showcases TASK Connect’s commitment to growth but also highlights its dedication to excellence. This early success sets a promising trajectory for TASK Connect, solidifying its potential to emerge as a leading company in the UK telecare and GPS monitored alarm industry.

Looking after our customers during COVID-19

COVID-19/Coronavirus Customer Notice

18 March 2020

For over 45 years, TASK, and the communities we serve, have faced various challenges. We have come through them all, thanks to the commitment of our team, our customers, and the dedication of the community groups we work with. The interests of our customers, our people and our communities are at the centre of everything we do, and this is particularly important during these challenging times.

With this in mind, we wanted to reassure you, that we are putting in place a number of robust measures to enable customers to receive telecare and pendant alarm units, while prioritising health and safety.

We understand that the alarms and installations are a lifeline for many people, and we take this responsibility extremely seriously. Our CareLink team, including our dedicated installers, continue working tirelessly to support our customers.

TASK's 24-hour CareLink monitoring centre is operating day and night. Robust contingency plans are also in place, to ensure an effective continuous service throughout the duration of the COVID-19 global pandemic and beyond.

As a result of Covid-19, we have made some changes to the installation service that customers should be aware of;

TASK installers will now deliver units to customer's premises but will not carry out an installation unless this has be pre-agreed. Customers can also opt for equipment to be delivered by An Post. Full installation instructions and details of telephone support will be included with each alarm unit.

Where a customer needs TASK to install the alarm, our installers will wear a face mask, and will disinfectant the monitored alarm and any surfaces they have touched before leaving the premises. Customers must also remain in another room during the installation, or at least 2 metres away from the installer at all times.

To further mitigate against the risk of Covid-19, TASK installers will complete the installation/keyholder form by telephone with the customer.

For forms requiring a signature, including the installation/keyholder form, our installers can temporarily do this on behalf of the customer to avoid unnecessary contact. The installer will stay at least two steps away. A copy of the signed form will subsequently be sent to customers.

Special arrangements for customers impacted by Covid-19 have also been put in place.

In these difficult times, we want you to know that you can rely on us to keep you connected 24-hours a day, when it matters most.


TASK will keep all customers up-to-date through this website and via our Social Media channels.

Telecare Alarms With CCTV Now Available

by ronan

Telecare with CCTV - Activates when emergency button is pressed

Telecare with combined CCTV is now available from TASK. The live (CCTV) visual monitoring will only be activated, after a client has pressed their emergency pendant alarm button for help. The system allows for visual monitoring of shared areas, in or around the home (hallway/kitchen/driveway etc).  Trained CareLink call-handlers can then assess the situation, often more accurately, to determine the type of assistance that is required. Recordings can be made available in line with GDPR data protection laws, after the event.

Using CCTV technology in conjunction with your monitored telecare alarm can allow for added peace of mind and security, for instance with front/rear door CCTV monitoring, along with two-way voice communication. Trained CareLink call-handlers will take the appropriate action as and when necessary.

Additions to the system can include a KeySafe or automatic door release. This can allow the monitoring center to provide a code and/or open doors to the dwelling, in the event of emergency services requiring access. This removes the need for forced entry if key holders are not available.

To find out more about TASK's CCTV with telecare, call us on 01 8435889 (ROI) or 02890 360280 (UK)
