What does Care Link offer?

Care Link can provide as much or little support as you want from less than 60 pence a day. It brings peace of mind, safe in the knowledge that help and support is always on hand 24 hours a day, every day.

The services range from a pendant worn on the wrist or around the neck, which can be pressed at times of concern to a home visiting service and emergency response.

The care link process

We will visit you in your home and discuss your circumstances and recommend the Care Link service most suitable for you. If you would like a family member or friend to be there when we visit then that’s fine – we welcome the chance to talk to them too to understand your needs better.

What Care Link Service is right for you?

We offer three basic packages Standard, Premium, and Premium Plus detailed below:

Standard

Gives support through an alarm installed in your home and connected to Care Link through your telephone line 24 hours a day, every day.

A discreet personal alarm worn as a watch or pendant that can be pressed any time, day or night for any emergency.

Our Care Link contact centre can pick up your alarm call within seconds. They will speak to you directly through the Care Link alarm installed in your home to find out what has happened.

If you need help the Care Link operator will try to get hold of a loved one. If they can’t, and the situation is urgent, they will contact the emergency services.

Premium

Includes all of the features of Care Link Standard with the added benefit of an emergency response service.

If you need help the Care Link operator will aim to get hold of a loved one and if they can’t, they will send a responder to your home.

We provide a quick, potentially life saving response, usually within 30 minutes of the alarm being raised and no longer than one hour.

Great for busy working families who can’t always be there to respond to a loved one when they need it.

Premium Plus

Includes all of the features of Care Link Premium with the added benefit of a visiting service by one of our friendly Community Support Workers.

Our specially trained team of Community Support Workers will agree a support plan and visits to fit in with your individual requirements.

Great for those who would like a bit more company and support with a personal touch.



All costs include the Care Link system being set up in your home with the latest technology.

Additional Sensors

Additional sensors can be added to any of the above packages from as little as 73p each week. We offer sensors for a wide variety of needs, such as:

  • Door alarms that alert when someone leaves the property when they shouldn’t – additional peace of mind for carers of loved ones with Dementia.
  • Fire and carbon monoxide sensors so we can contact the emergency services straight away if they are activated.
  • Temperature extremes sensor to alert Care Link if it gets too hot or too cold which can cause a risk to health – perfect in winter or very warm periods in summer.
