Carelink Alarm Unit
The Carelink alarm unit is the hub that connects you to us when you need help. It's easy to use and simple to set-up. Just plug it into the mains and connect it to your landline socket. You can plug your telephone into the back of the alarm, so there's no need to get an extra socket fitted.
The Carelink alarm unit has several features:
- * Loudspeaker and microphone to speak to us.
- * A backup battery to protect your alarm from power cuts.
- * Pre-recorded alerts if the phone line or power supply fails.
- * Adjustable volume to ensure you can always hear us.
- * Red button to call for help when you need it.
The Carelink Pendant keeps you connected to us throughout your home and garden.
The pendant has many features:
- * Impressive range - up to 100 metres from the base unit.
- * Waterproof - no need to take it off while bathing
- * Choice of wearing attachments - wrist strap and neck cord
- * Long-lasting battery life - up to 7 years.
The Carelink Pendant is lightweight and comfortable enough to wear all day long - it's no bigger than a watch face, so you can easily tuck it under a shirt or up your sleeve if you prefer.
How to use your Carelink Alarm
Using the Carelink alarm is quick and simple. Let's run through a scenario where you may need to use your alarm.
You could be at home doing a little bit of cleaning or just going to make a cup of tea. You unexpectedly lose your balance and have a fall. Of course, this might be a distressing experience, but there is no need to panic. All you need to do is press your alarm button. You will be connected to our Care Team in a matter of seconds and they will be ready to help.
The Care Team will speak to you through the alarm base unit and ask you a few questions. This will help them decide whether to call the emergency services as well as your nominated emergency contacts.
Your emergency contacts are a very important part of the Carelink alarm service. We recommend choosing people who are trustworthy, reliable, and live close by so they can get to you quickly when you need help.
If you do need medical help, the Care Team will also call the emergency services. They will provide the paramedics with all the details they need. They will also inform your next of kin that we have arranged emergency services for you.
Scientific research has found that spending two hours in nature each week is linked to better health and wellbeing. Taking part in community gardening can also encourage people to adopt healthier behaviours. This includes walking and eating fresh produce, and the evidence base is growing. Furthermore, the NHS are increasingly prescribing time in nature and community gardening projects as part of “green prescriptions”.
