Monitored Telecare Alarms
The telecare alarm system can be used in any situation at home, when you need help but cannot reach a telephone. For instance, if you have an accident, fall or need help for any other reason, simply press the emergency button. The monitored alarm will then connect to a trained CareLink operator in our 24-hour monitoring centre. The operator can then contact one of your nominated contacts, or the emergency services. The emergency alarm button transmits up to 300 metres (line of sight) from the telecare base-unit. This means it can often work in the garden or driveway of your home. The type of telecare alarm you need will depend on the type of phone connection in your home. Further details on each are below. Each comes with base unit, emergency button and attachments for wearing around the neck or as a wristband.
