Free Personal Alarm for the Elderly

Posted 16 Sep. 2018

Senior Alert Scheme

The Senior Alert Scheme is a valuable initiative that helps to protect older and vulnerable people in the community by providing them with a personal alarm. It is worn either like a pendant around the neck or a watch around the wrist. When pressed, a wireless signal is emitted that alerts a 24 hour monitoring centre. It is designed to empower older people by making them feel confident and secure when going about their daily lives. I urge anyone who thinks they meet the criteria to contact me and I will organise this for you. The first year is completely free, and the cost for subsequent years is minimal.

Eligibility Criteria

  • 65 years + and;

  • Of limited means or resources;
