Care phones are personal alarms worn on your wrist or around your neck that, when activated, alert a 24 hour response centre. The Legion can install care phones free of charge to Service and ex- Service personnel.
Extra security and peace of mind
Also known as a 'personal alarm', a care phone is a telephone-based unit that summons help to your home in an emergency. It serves as extra protection in your home to provide reassurance and support, especially if you:
- Are infirm or disabled
- Recently left hospital
- Have been victimised
- Are a victim of burglary
- Live in an area with high crime levels
- Live alone.
Help at the touch of a button
The unit is activated by pressing a button worn on your wrist or around your neck. This sends your details to a 24-hour response centre, where a friendly operator will assess the situation and send the emergency services to you if required.
