Hillingdon offers free pendant alarms to older people (UK)

Categories: Latest News.

Over the past year the London Borough of Hillingdon’s TeleCareLine service has been offering free telecare packages to residents over the age of 85 [85 and over, surely? Or do they really have to be 86?]. The scheme has successfully added 960 installations since 1 April 2011, 400 of which were self-referrals. The standard package comprises a Tunstall Lifeline Connect+ alarm, a MyAmie+ pendant, a bogus call [sic] alarm and a smoke detector. Additional sensors are provided according to need.
