GPS Personal Alarms

With a GPS Personal Alarm, you can get help at home and when you are out and about. If you fall, feel unwell or need help, press the emergency button on the GPS Personal Alarm to be quickly connected to a 24 hour Emergency Resolution Centre in the UK.

The friendly, professional team will check you are OK and call the emergency services or your friends or family if you need further help. Because the alarm uses GPS technology, it will work anywhere with a mobile signal. The Emergency Resolution Centre will know the location of the device from the GPS coordinates so they can quickly direct the appropriate help to you.

The GPS alarm is small enough to be used as a key fob or worn around your neck so you can carry it with you wherever you go. The alarm monitoring service is provided by Taking Care, who have been providing personal alarm services for more than 30 years. Since 2008 alone, Taking Care have helped 170,000 people stay safe in their homes, supporting customers and their families across the UK.
