GPS Personal Alarm - Taking Care

Taking Care's GPS personal alarm is a small, discreet and fully mobile personal alarm that provides peace of mind both at home and out and about. 

The GPS personal alarm fits around your life and no landline is required. Our 24 hour monitoring service provides you and your family with reassurance knowing that help is available 24 hours a day.

Simply press the SOS button to speak to our 24 hour monitoring centre any time or day or night. One of staff members from the response team will speak to you through the GPS alarm pendant and call your emergency contacts or the emergency services if medical assistance is required. GPS tracking provides the telecare monitoring centres with your accurate location so we know where you are when you need help.

Medical helpines and key safe can be added to the package for that extra bit of security.
