Herefordshire Careline is a 24 hour Personal Emergency response service, based in Hereford which is connected to your home through an alarm unit linked to your telephone line. Help in times of crisis is just the push of a button away. The control centre is staffed 24 hours a day by friendly, helpful staff. The service helps people to live independently in their own homes.
* Telecare Services Association 2009 Code of Practice (all services fully compliant)
Careline is available to anyone who needs to summon help urgently, such as:
There is no age barrier for this service.
The Careline Service allows you to call for help by the simple touch of a button, either on the alarm unit, or by simply pressing a radio pendant, which can be worn around the neck, on the wrist, or clipped to your clothing. Once you press the button, you will be linked to Herefordshire Careline where friendly and professional staff will talk to you and take appropriate action, whether it be contacting a friend or family member to alert them to a problem or contacting the emergency services. Where possible our staff will stay on line until help arrives. As the service is operated 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, you can be reassured that help and assistance is always only the touch of a button away.
The Careline equipment can be purchased or rented from Herefordshire Housing and financial assistance may be available through other organisations.
A small on-going charge is then made for the service, which also covers the cost of maintenance of the alarm unit.
Installation of the system and the provision of the service are simple, and are carried out by our own staff.
Herefordshire Careline also offers a Lone Worker Monitoring service that could help to ensure the safety of your employees. By simply programming the mobile phone of the lone worker to our control centre we can monitor their safety using our easy-to-use system. Find out more about Lone Workers.
Other services that we offer include out-of-hours repairs and anti-social behaviour call handling services, which we currently provide for a number of other organisations. Our centre is manned 24 hours a day, so you can rely on us to take your calls when your offices are closed. We offer a polite and professional service that your customers will appreciate when they are unable to contact you directly.
These services can also include emailed reports of the calls we have passed to your representatives/contractors and monthly call handling reports*. If you would like to find out more about these services please contact Simon Herdsfield on 01432-384097.
