Join the 'Carelink' alarm service

Carelink is an alarm installed in your home which gives you contact with a trained member of staff 24 hours a day, every day of the year at the touch of a button.

Why choose Carelink?

Many elderly, disabled or vulnerable people want to retain their independence and enjoy the comforts of their own home. Now, thanks to modern technology, we are able to offer an alarm system that can be operated from anywhere in your home or garden.

A pendant that you can wear enables you to make a call to our control centre should you need to. We aim to answer all calls within 60 seconds and trained members of staff can give advice and assistance.

Levels of service

There are two levels of service and we will assist you to select the service that meets your needs:

1)   Monitoring and response service

When you press your alarm button our operators will speak to you and offer advice and reassurance. If you need further help, we will be your emergency contact and our Carelink support assistants attend if you need help.

2)   Monitoring only

The monitoring only service is the same as the monitoring and response service, but your emergency contacts are family, friends and neighbours. They must have given consent for us to contact them 24 hours a day in an emergency.

What equipment do I need?

All you need is a telephone socket and an electric power point close by. We will provide, install and maintain the equipment. If your equipment becomes faulty we will replace it.

How much does it cost?*

  • installation fee:  £25.00
  • monitoring only:  £17.33 per month
  • monitoring and response:  £31.59 per month

You can pay for the service by monthly Direct Debit, credit or debit cards, using an All Pay Card at the Post Office or other outlets.  

*Prices are correct as of April 2016 and may be subject to change. Depending on your personal circumstances we may be able to assist you to apply for funding towards the cost of the service.
