Monitoring and Subscription FAQs

  • How do I pay for the subscription?

    The subscription is paid by Direct Debit and for convenience we recommend you set this up when you order online.

    When you place your order online, you will have two payment options to choose from. You can choose to pay the set-up cost as part of your first Direct Debit payment, in which case you need to complete the Direct Debit instruction shown when you have completed your order.

    Or you may prefer to pay the one-off set-up cost and first subscription payment by debit/credit card and set-up the Direct Debit later. Some customers prefer this option if someone else is paying for the subscription. For example, customers may order the personal alarm service for family members who wish to pay the subscription themselves.

    Your order confirmation email will include a link to the Direct Debit instruction in case someone else needs to set it up or you wish to do it later.  We would advise you to complete your Direct Debit instruction as soon as possible however to avoid any complications.

    If you have any problems setting up the Direct Debit, we are here to help. Please call our Customer Services team on 0800 085 7310, 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday or email enquiries@ppptakingcare.co.uk.

  • What date is the Direct Debit payment taken?

    Once we have received your order and processed your Direct Debit instruction, we will write to you within 10 days of receiving your Direct Debit instruction to confirm the amount, frequency and Direct Debit date. If you would like to change the payment date, please call our Customer Services team on 0800 085 7310, 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday or email enquiries@ppptakingcare.co.uk.

  • What’s included in my subscription?

    The subscription includes 24-hour monitoring by our Emergency Resolution Centres. We have three UK based Emergency Resolution Centres, so you can be confident that alarm calls will be answered anytime of the day or night, 365 days of the year.

    If you have an in home alarm equipment fault or if your pendant battery needs replacing, we will fix the issue, free of charge.

  • Can I use my alarm product without subscription?

    The subscription covers the 24/7 monitoring service, which is an essential part of the package. Without a subscription, rented equipment must be returned to us.

    The in-home personal alarm equipment is rented from us for the duration of your contract. This means that if the equipment develops a fault, we will repair or replace it free of charge. When you no longer require our service, we will provide a freepost Royal Mail return collection bag to make it as easy as possible to return the equipment. 

    The out-and-about-alarms are not rented (Out-and-About Watch Alarm, Out-and-About Classic GPS Alarm, Out-and-About Mobile Alarm and Dementia Locate). 

  • How do I cancel my subscription?

    If you no longer need your personal alarm, please ring our Customer Services team on 0800 085 7310 who will cancel your subscription. Lines are open Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm. We will send you a freepost Royal Mail return collection bag to make it as easy as possible to return the equipment.

     

  • How do I provide you with details of my emergency contacts?

    To ensure we deliver the best possible service to you and your family, after you have received your order we will collect some additional information.

    This includes who you would like us to contact in an emergency, such as family or neighbours. If you have a key safe, we'll ask for the code and location so we can quickly and conveniently get help to you if you cannot answer the door. We will only ever give the code to the emergency services, not to contacts as you are free to do this yourself. 

    So we can arrange the best help in an emergency, we’ll ask you for GP details and medical conditions.

     

  • What should I do if my emergency contacts or other details change?

    Please let us know if there is a change to your contacts or if they are away so we do not call them unnecessarily in an emergency.

    Our Customer Services team can help with any changes, including if you move address. Please call us on 0800 085 7310.
