Bon Accord Care - Community Alarm Service
This is a service to help people who are at risk through various health problems and disabilities to stay in their own home. It gives security of knowing that they can call for help in an emergancy, such as falling or feeling ill at any time of the day or night.
An alarm unit is supplied along with a pendant that you were around your neck. When you press either the alarm button or pendant a signal is sent to a Control Centre which is staffed 24 hours a day. The operator can speak to the client through the alarm system and check what kind of assistance is required. Sometimes all that is necessary will be a short conversation to reassure the client. If necessary, the operator will contact a friend, relative or volunteer whose name you have provided so they can give the help required.
The charge for Community Alarm is £1.35 per week
