Picking Emergency Contacts
Once you press your personal alarm button our care team in our alarm response centre will speak to you on your personal alarm and then arrange for one of your emergency contacts to come and assist you.
It is best to ensure you have a selection of emergency contacts ranging from family & friends to neighbours or even a carer. If we can not reach your first nominated emergency contacts we would then continue to call through those you list.
If you can not make your mind up, want some advice or help then feel free to call our customer service team for assistance.
Should I allow them access to my home?
The short answer is yes, all your emergency contacts should have access to your home. Whether they hold a key or have access to a keysafe it is imperative they can reach you when you press your personal alarm. This is another reason you must always pick someone you can trust.
If you do not have a keysafe you should definitely give one serious consideration. Whether purchased from ourselves or not they can be life saving at the same time as being safe and secure. The most safe and secure keysafes are those with the Secured by Design accreditation from the UK police. This accreditation applies to two of our keysafes and shows the keysafe has undergone rigorous testing by the UK police. Any keysafe with this is deemed as safe and secure as a conventional front door.
"Excellent and professional quick service, together with peace of mind for the future. Thank You!"
How the System Works
If you have a fall or feel unwell then you just need to press the red help button on your pendant. Our Care Team will receive an alert call and will respond immediately. A member of the team will speak with you over the Lifeline Alarm base unit loudspeaker, before deciding the best form of action.
This will commonly involve them contacting your emergency contacts and, if needed, the emergency services. Emergency contacts usually consist of family members, close friends and neighbours. Your medical details will also be given to the paramedics so that they are in the best possible position to help once they arrive.
When customers receive their Lifeline Alarm, they will also receive the stylish MyAmie Pendant. This can be worn around the neck or wrist, with both attachments provided by Lifeline24. Other features include:
- The pendant is waterproof allowing it to be worn in the bath or shower as well as when doing the dishes.
- The pendant has an impressive range of up to 100 metres, ideal for use anywhere in the home and garden.
- A seven-year battery life means you don't need to worry about it running flat. A free replacement pendant will be sent out to you when it starts to run low.
Having a keysafe on your home can make a big difference in how quickly help can reach you and at Lifeline24 your safety is of the highest importance to us. This is why we recommend all Lifeline Vi Alarm users have a keysafe fitted.
- A keysafe provides access for emergency services when your nominated contact can not be reached or can not get there in time to let the emergency services in.
- A keysafe provides your emergency contacts with a way into your home if they do not hold a key or have left it at their own home.
- We offer a range of keysafes from basic keyboxes to high end keysafes with the UK Police Secured by Design accreditation. This means they are as hard to gain entry to as a conventional front door.
