RAFBF

Supporting RAF veterans to maintain their independence

Many of our personal alarm customers are armed forces veterans whose lives have been enhanced with the reassurance a personal alarm has given them.

Retired Squadron Leader A. Garretts MBE had an impressive and varied 30-year career in the RAF. Mr Garretts first got an alarm from Taking Care when his wife became unwell some years ago.

The alarm gave him and his family peace of mind that help was always available when needed and allowed Mr Garretts to pop to the shops without the fear of leaving his wife alone.
