As we get older, our personal safety and avoiding and dealing with accidents or other emergencies in and around the home can become a very real concern.
If, like our many thousands of customers, you enjoy your independence but feel that the ability to call for help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in an emergency would help you to remain independent and confident at home, the telecare alarm and pendant is for you.
Rent an alarm for £4.45 per week, including 24/7 monitoring, support and maintenance, or buy an alarm for a one off payment of £175 and then pay just £2.75 a week for monitoring, support and maintenance (both options are subject to an installation fee). Call now on 0345 130 1469 to order or find out more.
When you need help, simply press the alarm button on the pendant or on the alarm unit, and you will be connected to one of our friendly and highly skilled operators in our Monitoring & Response Centre located in Kidderminster, Worcestershire.
They will be able to speak to you over the loudspeaker built in to the alarm unit and will be able to hear you via the built in microphone. Just tell them what sort of help you need and our operator will arrange the appropriate help to respond such as your family or friends or, if required, your doctor or the emergency services. They'll stay on the line to reassure you until help arrives.
The alarm simply plugs in to a mains socket and your normal telephone landline socket. If you live in and around Worcestershire, for a low one-off installation fee, one of our friendly trained installers will visit you to carry out the alarm installation and test it for you.
They'll make sure you know how to use it and help you make some test calls so you can see how easy and reassuring it is. If you live outside of our installation area, we will post our basic alarm and pendant package to you with easy to follow self-installation instructions.
Yes, we offer a wide range of additional options to our basic alarm and pendant package to provide further reassurance and safety to allow you to live independently in your own home:
KeySafes – We strongly recommend having a KeySafe fitted. This is a little box that is fixed to the outside of your property and contains keys for your front or back doors. The keys are held securely inside the box which can only be opened by entering a correct code on the front of the box. Our operators will know what the code is and will give it to the emergency services if needed. This will ensure that if you are unable to open the door in an emergency, the emergency services can still get in to help you without having to break the door down.

Additional pendants – these can be added to the system for use by other people in the property. Each pendant is linked to the person who normally wears it so our operators know which person needs help.
