Lifeline alarms and telecare

Who uses it?

Many people can benefit from having a lifeline and anyone can have one installed. You can be a homeowner or rent your property.

A lifeline will benefit any individual who feels vulnerable at home. This may be due to age, disability, ill health or simply because you live alone and require a friendly and reassuring voice at the end of the phone.

We have a wide range of customers with various needs:

  • people living alone
  • individuals with no local support network
  • businesses and organisations that have people working from home
  • residents in sheltered housing
  • families with young children
  • those at risk of domestic violence
  • people leaving hospital
  • those at risk of regular falls
  • people suffering from illnesses
  • people with a range of conditions including physical and mental health disabilities, autism, learning difficulties and allergies
