1. Who can use Careline
Lots of different people belong to the Careline community:
- older people
- people living with disabilities
- those with serious medical conditions
- people who feel under threat
- those at risk from racial or domestic violence.
There are times when you need someone to watch out for you or a loved one at home. This is where Careline can help.
2. Getting connected
You will receive a speaker box and an alarm pendant. This is connected to our 24 hour control centre in Brixton.
The 24 hour control centre in Brixton is staffed by our friendly professional team seven days a week, who are always there to help you in an emergency.
Should an emergency arise, you simply press the button on your pendant or speaker box and our staff will talk to you to arrange assistance.
You'll know that by pushing the Careline button help is on its way.
For example it could be contacting your 'key holders', an ambulance, your GP or a check-up from Careline staff.
