Community Alarm

Carelines, Emergency Alarms or Community Alarms are different names for a well established technology that enables you to call for help if you fall, or are taken ill or suspect an intruder. They work through your telephone, and enable you to summon help by pressing a single large button on the phone or via a wrist band or pendant worn round your neck. Calls are routed to a monitoring centre that is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Careline systems are available from local councils, charities or commercial providers.
