Safety & security > Safety & security services
Services that provide safety and security are provided by a range of Home Improvement Agencies, voluntary agencies, and Community Alarm Services. The former two may provide home safety and security checks and/or install equipment such as window locks, door chains, replacement door locks for elderly people. Community Alarm Services provide a 24hour alarm monitoring service from a control centre and this is a communication technology service. This enables older people to feel safe and secure in their home because they have the means of alerting help in an emergency. Some Community Alarm or Careline Services also provide an emergency visiting service.
