Personal alarms recommended by Taking Care

In partnership with TrustedCare

Remaining independent at home is a priority for many older adults and their families. Your elderly loved one may not require a formal care service just yet, or you may want a personal alarm to complement your choice of home care so there is always a way to get help when a carer cannot be around.

A Taking Care personal alarm provides reassurance that your loved one has a way of calling for help if they fall or have an emergency.

We've supported over ¼ million people and their families with personal alarms and are the first Which? approved personal alarm service in the UK.

Trusted Care

Our personal alarms include a 30-day money back guarantee

Falls - and the injuries they cause - are on the rise. They can threaten health and independence as we age. A personal alarm can allow your loved one to carry on enjoying life independently, knowing they can get help quickly if the worst does happen.

At the touch of a button on their personal alarm, your loved one will quickly be connected to one of Taking Care's specially trained operators. They will speak directly with your loved one and arrange for help to reach them, 24-hours a day.
