The Age UK Personal Alarm Service is provided by PPP Taking Care Limited.

Buying this service supports Age UK’s charitable work.

An emergency alarm gives users the freedom to live independently in their own home. With the touch of a button worn around the wrist or neck, the user can call the 24-hour emergency resolution centre for help should they have an accident when alone. 

Independence when you want it, help when you need it

At the touch of a button friends or family can be alerted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, offering peace of mind and reassurance.

  • Quick and easy to install.
  • Choose from a Self-Connect or a We-Connect personal alarm.
  • Save £99 when you choose the Self-Connect option and install yourself.
  • Your ongoing payments cover the 24-hour monitoring service, plus on-site maintenance service†.
  • Simply press the button on your lightweight pendant or wristband to connect to the emergency resolution centre – no numbers to remember.
  • Your call will be answered in seconds – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The PPP Taking Care operator will automatically know who and where you are, and whether to inform your chosen contacts or the emergency services.

Being on my own I feel there is always someone near to help me if and when an accident happens.
