Seniors Alert Scheme

This scheme, which has been advertised on the radio recently, is government-funded, and offers peace of mind to people aged over 65 who know that if they have a fall or need help with anything, assistance is just the press of a button away.

The purpose of the scheme is to enable older people to continue to live in their home with independence and confidence by providing them with a free personal monitored alarm. The alarm can be worn as a pendant or around the wrist like a watch. When pressed, it connects wirelessly to a base unit, usually attached to a phone. The base unit immediately sends a call to a 24 hour monitoring unit. 

The scheme is administered locally by community and voluntary groups from the local area. Further information is also available from Pobal athttps://www.pobal.ie/Beneficiaries/Seniors%20Alert%20Scheme/Pages/default.aspx

If you would like further information about this scheme, let us know, and we’ll pass on contact information.
