All our East of England customers will receive a sleek pendant button with their Carelink alarm. This button, known as the MyAmie pendant, is small, stylish, and discreet. It comes with two comfortable attachments, meaning you can decide whether to wear it around your neck or on your wrist. If you struggle using your hands and fingers, don't worry. You can also request an easy-press attachment to go with your Carelink button.
This powerful little pendant has a range of up to 100 metres. This means you can even wear it out in the garden - perfect for keen gardeners or sunbathers! It is also water-resistant, so there is no need to take it off while doing the washing up or taking a relaxing bath or shower.

This can be distressing, but all you need to do is press the button on your pendant. Our monitoring team will immediately receive your call for assistance. They will speak to you over the alarm unit's loudspeaker to see what's happened before calling your emergency contacts.
Your emergency contacts are a crucial part of the Carelink service. We recommend choosing relatives, friends, or neighbours near you in the East of England. Your chosen contacts will be informed that you require urgent help. If you need medical assistance, we will also contact the emergency services. The monitoring team will call your contacts to assist you even if you are unable to respond to the loudspeaker, for example, if you have fainted or had a fall outside in the garden.
