Home / Family Information & Advice / Carelink And Support At Home - Local Bury Service
For anyone of any age who would like to feel safer, more protected and independent in their own home, 24 hours a day. Carelink provides a community/social alarm system & response to emergency calls in addition to directing customers to the help they need. The service can also provide smoke detectors and fall & movement detectors as part of a comprehensive 'Telecare' package subject to a simple technical assessment.
Carelink uses a community alarm device normally linked to your existing telephone line, and provides a small personal trigger button that is carried by the user whilst they are at home. Should an emergency take place; for example a fall in the home, then by simply pressing the carried button, the user is able to make contact with the Carelink service, without the need to reach the telephone.
The Support at Home Service helps people to continue living in their own home by offering a daily telephone call to make sure you are ok and to talk through any problems you might have. They can help you make appointments, contact relatives, help fill in forms and work with you to resolve issues. This service is for people 60+ or those under 60 with high support needs.
