Enter this prize draw and you could be in with a chance of winning an Age UK personal alarm free of charge for 12 months! This could be for yourself or for a friend or relative.
For those times when everyday life gets in the way of people supporting their older relatives, a personal alarm can give reassurance and peace of mind. Once the button on the alarm is pressed, the call is picked up within seconds by a 24 hour emergency response centre. The centre will then contact a designated friend or family member and let them know that help is required. They will also contact the emergency services if needed.
The Age UK Personal Alarm service gives users the freedom to live independently in their own home, safe in the knowledge that if there is an accident or if they have a fall, help is available at the touch of a button. It works by connecting a customer to a dedicated Response Centre which is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Age UK alarm system operates a two-way speech link to enable the person who has raised the alarm to talk to an operator within seconds. The operator can then contact the chosen keyholder – most often a friend, neighbour or relative – who can visit and offer assistance. If there is no contact available, or if the situation is more serious, the emergency services will be contacted.
