Today sees the launch of a brand new National Telecare service from TeleCare 24, providing much needed care and protection to the elderly.
With over 12 million people in the UK of pensionable age, a personal emergency alarm is becoming a vital way of ensuring people can stay independent in their own home no matter of their age or disability.
Almost half of elderly people live alone or are in poor health and with relatives sometimes living some distance away, the concern can often be who can provide immediate assistance if and when it is required.
There are over 9000 reported falls each day in the UK and a personal pendant alarm from Telecare24 enables people to summon help at the touch of a button, using either their emergency button found on their wireless pendant alarm or on the emergency alarm unit installed in the home.
The pendant alarm is connected to an existing telephone line and when the OAP emergency button is pressed customers are immediately connected to one of our highly trained operators who will summon assistance to ensure you are cared for as quickly as possible.
From its operation centre in Hampshire, Telecare24 provides total reassurance for people who require emergency support or assistance with the ability to offer services to all 23 million homes in the UK. Highly trained Operators from Telecare24 can take care of any emergency a person experiences in their home and will summon whatever assistance necessary to resolve the situation.

Neil Evans, Director of Operations commented, “Telecare24 will be the first National Telecare Service to be both reactive and proactive. We have a range of really exciting services that we will be launching that will give our customers real independence at home using the latest technologies. Our equipment that we can install in any UK home looks totally unique and has been designed to be easy to use and really stylish, something you don’t normally associate with traditional Telecare products. Our aim is to use technology to give real peace of mind to our users, their friends and relatives.”
Telecare24 is available from just £2.99 a week.
