Digital Personal Alarm

An easy-to-use alarm that can be worn around your neck as a pendant or around your wrist. If you need an alarm for peace of mind in the home and garden, this is a good choice. This alarm gives you the safety and confidence to continue living independently in the home you love. The Digital Personal Alarm is perfect if you don't have a landline or want an in-home alarm that is unaffected by the telephone network’s digital switchover.

Digital Fall Alarm

Find all the benefits of an in-home alarm with built-in fall detection. If you worry about how you would get help if you fall, this alarm provides additional reassurance in the home and garden. No telephone landline is needed to use this alarm.

Taking Care Anywhere

Combining the freedom of a GPS alarm with the reliability of an in-home alarm, you can get help wherever you are with the Taking Care Anywhere.** The location-aware pendant also has a built-in fall detector and a microphone and speaker so you can talk with the Emergency Resolution team.

Personal Alarm Watch

A stylish watch that offers peace of mind and offers help even when you are out-and-about. It includes GPS tracking, a pedometer to count your daily steps and a built-in microphone and speaker so you can speak directly with the Emergency Resolution team, any time of the day or night.

Taking Care Sense

Taking Care Sense is a home monitoring system that alerts Taking Care's Resolution team of changes in daily routine or unusual environmental conditions. The small, unobtrusive sensor with in-built battery is designed for use in the kitchen and can be simply placed, with no cables or complicated set up. Family members can also receive a weekly summary by email to help manage their loved one’s wellbeing.

Key Safe

With a key safe, you can store a key to your home so help can reach you in an emergency. A key safe can be fitted to an outdoor brick or concrete wall and the code shared with family, friends, or neighbours you trust. If you share the code with Taking Care, they will pass it onto the emergency services if they are called and you cannot get to the door.

"Simple to set up. Help was there to talk you through the setup, everyone was very knowledgeable."
