Adult Care Services may be able to provide a Lifeline personal alarm for you if we consider you are at risk and have no other way to obtain an alarm system.
The alarms are connected to a control room that is staffed twenty-four hours a day and can provide reassurance, advice or quickly contact your friends, relatives or the emergency services. You also get an emergency button with the alarm to be worn around your neck or on your wrist.
Who can receive a Lifeline alarm?
- Older people and disabled people who have health conditions and are physically impaired or vulnerable and live alone.
- You must have no other way of getting help or getting a personal alarm.
What is needed to install this alarm?
- Two emergency contacts in Bristol
- A working telephone land line
- An electric socket near the telephone point
How do you apply?
- If you are in contact with Health and Social Care speak to your allocated worker.
- Or telephone Care Direct.
- We will tell you if you can be considered for a Lifeline alarm.
Are there charges?
Yes. We will be able to provide you with more information when you contact us.
If you don't qualify for a lifeline alarm you may want to consider the council's Bristol Careline service
