If you experience an emergency, with the touch of a button the specially trained Careline Control Room staff will respond quickly and sensitively to your needs.
How do Careline alarms work?
The alarms work using your existing landline telephone connection. When the alarm is activated it dials out to our 24/7 control centre and our experienced staff will deal with you emergency in appropriate professional manner.
At the installation of your service we will provide and fit a keysafe. This will allow quick access to your home for Careline staff and the emergency services and ensure that your situation is dealt with as quickly and efficiently as possible care. All keysafes used are police approved.
Careline are an emergency response service and are therefore unable to assist with toileting issues and house work. Should you require help with these matters, we would be happy to assist you in making a referral through our Contact Centre. You can do this yourself by telephone - 01744 676600 or by emailing Contactcares@sthelens.gov.uk
Staff are also unable to administer your medication, but again will assist you in contacting the appropriate people on your behalf.
