We all love to be at home. It is where our happy memories have been made and where we feel safe. But for those who have been ill or have had an accident or fall, home can be a daunting place to be alone.
A community alarm provides peace of mind for you, your family and friends that if you need help, it is just at the touch of a button.
By pressing the button on a pendant, that can be worn on the wrist or around the neck, a call will be made to our 24 hours a day, 7 days a week call monitoring service, alerting us that there may be a problem at home. Our professional and friendly local team will be able to speak with you, through your community alarm unit to check you are okay.
If you need help, we will contact one of your nominated people. This could be a family member, friend or neighbour. We always ask for two people, just in case one is uncontactable.
If you have had a fall or need urgent medical help, we can arrange for the local emergency services to come out to you.
We recommend that you install a key safe on the outside of your home so that the emergency services can get in to you if you are unable to open the door. The Handy Person Service can arrange this for you.
Contact Community alarms (firstname.lastname@example.org) today and put a stop to the worry linked to being at home alone or call us on 01493 846654 / 846674.
