During your alarm set-up, you'll be asked to nominate some emergency contacts. These are the people you've listed to contact if you press your alarm in the event of an emergency. Our 24 hour monitoring team will get in touch with them if required to come and help you out. With this in mind, it's crucial to make sure your emergency contacts are people you trust, but also preferably people who have access to your house.
Anyone can be your emergency contact, however we would highly recommend choosing people who live within a reasonable distance of your house, so they can get to you in the event of an emergency.
Some of the most common emergency contact relations are:
- Close friends
- Family members
We would recommend adding in a selection of emergency contacts, in case we can't get hold of your primary contact in the event of an emergency.
If you're unsure about who to add, or want further advice, get in touch with our support team who will be more than happy to provide impartial advice, and talk you through the process.
How many emergency contacts can I have on file?
Should they have access to my house?
What if you can't get hold of my contacts?
I felt so much better coming out of hospital to a Telecare button. I'd had my knee replaced and was vulnerable to falls. It made me feel safer.
We've found that the alarm hasn't just benefited Mum's life but ours as well. We worry less knowing she can let people know if there's a problem.
The alarm has made a huge difference to Mum’s confidence and it definitely brings me a lot of comfort.

For patients at high risk of falls, living independently at home can be a real struggle. Telecare alarms help give them that extra confidence by making sure help is always readily available.
Telecare Choice offer two simple price plans to ensure that you can get your personal alarm up and running as soon as possible.
Of course, both of our price plans come with free 24-hour delivery so that you can have your new alarm and pendant installed sooner, rather than later.
Once installed the alarm user will be covered by our 24-hour Monitoring Team. Should they need help, day or night, all they need to do is simply push the Telecare pendant and a member of the team will respond within seconds.
The Monitoring Team will then take appropriate action to ensure the user gets help - whether this is contacting a relative or the emergency services. Ensure help can gain access to the property with a Keysafe.

Protecting Elderly People Across the UK
The elderly and disabled often need special measures to manage the risks associated with living alone.
This can lead to people moving into a home or residential care. We believe that this doesn't need to happen. Our Telecare Alarms assist the elderly and help them to remain safe in the comfort of their own home.
A Telecare Alarm service provides elderly people who live alone with somebody to call for help if they suffer a fall, feel unwell or need some reassurance. Simplicity is at the heart of the Telecare Alarm and our 24-hour service allows elderly people across the UK to remain confident in the comfort of their own home.
Remain independent and join the Telecare Choice community today to ensure that help is always available.
