Careline Personal Alarm

24/7 help at the touch of a button

Our personal alarms mean that help is just the touch of a button away.

It is monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week, helping you and your loved ones remain independent and safe inside your own homes.

Independence when you want it, help when you need it

Our Careline personal alarm offers peace of mind and reassurance round-the-clock. Worn around the neck or wrist, our pendant is comfortable and discreet. By the touch of a button, our call monitoring centre can contact family, friends or the emergency services if needed, 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Our Careline personal alarm:

  • is lightweight and easy to wear
  • allows you to move freely about your home and garden
  • is waterproof for use in the shower
  • has a range of approximately 50 m (this may vary depending on the structure of your property, our installers will check the range when they visit)

Our 24-hour alarm service is connected to your home through your telephone landline and an electrical socket.

Once the button is pressed on your pendant, it will send a signal to the alarm unit in your home. This will automatically dial the call monitoring centre where one of our operators will answer your call in seconds.

Even if you can’t speak, or are too far away from the unit, our operator will know who you are, and will have all your details to hand. They’ll contact a relative, neighbour or the emergency services on your behalf.
