Taking Care help over 52,000 people with their personal alarm services. With 98% of alarm calls answered within 60 seconds, you can be confident of the support you deserve should you suffer a fall or medical emergency. Customers in Kent can choose to have the personal alarms installed for them by a Taking Care advisor, who will also demonstrate how to use the personal alarm service.

The personal alarm service is reliable and easy to use and potentially life-saving for the elderly and vulerable. The alarm can be worn as pendant or wristband. Pressing the alarm button will quickly connect the alarm holder to the response centre who will attempt to contact the alarm holder by the loudspeaker on the alarm base unit. Should further assistance be required, the response centre will contact the emergency services or keyholders. Taking Care recommend a key safe so help can get to you without delay.

Taking Care can make your home safer with a range of telecare products, including fall detectors and a medical helpline.
