Help 24/7 at the press of a button

Do you know any older people who would benefit from an affordable alarm system in case of emergencies? Milton Keynes Community Alarm is a speech-based social alarm system that links into a standard telephone and offers peace of mind 24 hours a day.

When the alarm is installed you will be issued with a pendant button which can be word around your neck, on a belt clip or with a wrist strap. When you press the button you will automatically get through to the 24-hour control centre where a friendly operator will talk to you and arrange the most appropriate help for you, such as getting in touch with your family, contacting the emergency services or simply listeningto you and putting your mind at rest.
