Emergency alarm call service in Leeds

What does it do?

The Care Ring emergency alarm call service allows you to continue to live independently in your own home with the knowledge that help is at hand if needed.

The Care Ring emergency alarm call service involves a pendant-style monitor connected to a response centre. When you activate the alarm, this alerts the response centre where trained staff will be on hand to help and reassure you.
