Apply for a Community Alarm

Rothercare community alarms

A community alarm is a pendant that you can wear on your wrist, around your neck, or just keep close to you. It supports you to live safely and independently in your own home.

If you need help you can push the button on your pendant, and this will put you through to our 24-hour/7 days a week monitoring centre. When your alarm goes off, we'll call to check what's wrong and find out the support you need.

If we can’t hear you, or you don’t answer our call, we'll get in touch with your nominated contact and ask them to check on you. If we can't contact them, we'll come out to make sure you're safe. In urgent situations we'll also call the emergency services on your behalf.
