Personal Alarm and Telecare Providers

Many people who live alone or who are alone for long periods choose to have an alarm system so that they can summon assistance should they require it. There is a large choice of systems available, ranging from simple pull-cord alarms which activate a flashing light or bell outside the home through to autodialler alarms which dial, via a telephone, through to preset numbers, to telecare systems which monitor and connect directly to a 24-hour monitoring station. You can find information about some of the basic systems in the 'Personal Alarms and Home Safety Devices' and 'Household Safety' sections in the Products Directory on Assist Ireland. If you need an alarm that calls through to a monitoring station, below find a list of companies that provide this service. For more information about personal alarms, see the Assist Ireland information sheet 'Choosing a Personal Alarm'.
