Senior Alert Scheme

The Senior Alert Scheme provides a free personal alarm that enables older people of limited means to continue to live securely and independently in their homes. These alarms connect to a national helpline if activated and will put you through to a helpline operator who will phone emergency services if necessary.

The alarm and installation of it are free under the scheme. After the first year, you will be asked to pay the annual monitoring fee. The service provider will advise you of the monitoring fee cost prior to installation.

The older person must be 65 years old or older and living alone or with another eligible person. If you know of someone who may be interested in this scheme, please contact our reception team on 0599722028.
