Hillingdon offers free pendant alarms to older people (UK)

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.
