The safety concerns of you and your loved one are our number one priority

Family members are generally very concerned for the safety and wellbeing of their elderly parent or relative, and will encourage the installation of a personal pendant alarm service with 24 hour monitoring. This gives peace of mind to family, friends and the service user alike and is a real lifeline when needed.

If you’re worried that your parent or relative could have an accident or fall ill at home with no one there to know, then you are not alone. Today in the UK, one in two people over the age of 75 will suffer a fall each year. This means that, sadly, the chances of this happening to a disabled or elderly loved one living on their own are extremely high.

Personal alarms for the elderly should be simple to operate & easy to afford.

We understand it's vitally important that during an emergency the lifeline alarm system is easy to use and accessible. Our products are chosen for those qualities, among others, with lightweight and discreet buttons, long-lasting battery life and convenient ways of being worn or carried, making help available, quite literally, at the touch of a button.

Our 5-star rating includes the highest level of customer service and of course our hugely important emergency alarm response unit, with lightning fast response times, a literal lifesaver when those extra few seconds can be so vital.

I cannot thank you enough for the prompt action taken when I had a medical emergency. Your operator kept me calm as we waited for the ambulance to arrive. “Help at the press of a button” Never a truer word, it takes a lot of worry out of living alone to know help is at hand 24/7. I would recommend it to anyone.

Mr H, Birmingham

 I thought of my button and put my hand down my neck and it was there. The thought that it might help me was my only hope. I pressed the button and immediately the voice came and told me not to worry – it was one of the best moments of my life! .... I never ever move without my button, it is just so important and a real life saver.

Mrs C, Gloucester

Mrs A was making a cup of tea for her lunch, and had slipped on her floor, and knocked her kettle, upon grabbing the side, Mrs A burned her hand and forearm. With urgency, she pressed her red button, and upon communication with our response centre, she had an ambulance with her within 15 minutes, bandaging her arm up, and making sure she was okay to be left alone. 

Mrs A was so happy with the response time, she felt it was important to ring us, to let us know; so she could share her experience with others.

Mrs A, Kettering

I lost my balance in my home and fell down. I pressed my alarm and got through to the services, they immediately sent an ambulance and let my neighbours know what was going on. I found the experience very good and quick
