Carelink Alarm Unit
The Carelink alarm unit is a simple plug and play system, consisting of a base unit and a small pendant. This base unit is the core of the Carelink alarm system. When you press your emergency button, the alarm unit will send an alert call directly through to our Care Team.
The alarm unit has a built-in loudspeaker and microphone, so you can communicate with the Care Team. We can turn the volume up if you are far from the alarm unit when you use it.
It also has a back-up battery that lasts up to 40 hours in the event of a power cut. As soon as the power comes back on, the back-up battery will automatically recharge itself.
The Carelink Pendant is small and discreet, but still very powerful. It features a red emergency button which you should press whenever you need assistance.
The pendant has a range of up to 100 metres, in order to cover your whole home, including the garden and driveway. It is also water-resistant so you can wear it when bathing, showering or even doing the dishes.
Furthermore, the Carelink Pendant has a seven-year battery life. We will automatically send you a replacement button if the battery starts to run low. This way you will never be without the peace of mind of your Carelink alarm and pendant.
How to use your Carelink Alarm
Using the Carelink alarm is very easy. Let's run through an example scenario when you may need to use your alarm.
You are at home, doing some gardening or a spot of spring cleaning when you lose your balance and have a fall. Of course, a fall can be distressing, but with the Carelink Personal Alarm, there is no need for concern. All you need to do is press the button on the pendant around your neck or wrist. This will connect you to the Care Team straight away.
Once you are connected, you will hear the friendly voice of one of our Care Team asking if you are alright. They will ask you some questions about what has happened, whether you are hurt, and how you are feeling.
If you need some assistance, they will then start to call through the list of your nominated emergency contacts. They will ask one of your contacts to make their way over to you and help you up.
If you are hurt, then the emergency services will be the first port of call. We will also call your next of kin to let them know what's happened.
In a few rare cases, we might not be able to get through to your contacts. They may be working or unable to get to the phone, for example. If this is the case, the Care Team will call the emergency services to come and help you.
Carelink alarms help elderly, disabled, and vulnerable people throughout the South East of England to live independently at home with peace of mind.

Today is World Alzheimer’s Day and that means, here at Lifeline24, we will be taking a looking at what the purpose of the day is and how Alzheimer’s affects people with the disease. World Alzheimer’s Day The purpose of World Alzheimer’s Day is to raise awareness for the disease and the challenges those suffering from it and their loved ones face on a daily basis. The theme of this year is breaking the stigmas surrounding Alzheimer’s. Dementia UK says Alzheimer’s and dementia are seen as an inevitable part of growing older. However, this is a misconception. Alzheimer’s is not simply becoming ‘a bit forgetful’ or ‘slow.’ It is a serious progressive disease with an official list of symptoms. Alzheimer’s does not only affect people in very old age either. 1 in 14 people over the age of 65 are affected by Alzheimer’s, but so are 1 in 20 of people aged under 65. This is known as early- or young-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s Disease Alzheimer’s Disease is a progressive condition. This means symptoms develop over a number of years and become more severe or frequent. The first sign is usually memory problems such as forgetting words for objects or people. Read More
