The Age NI Personal Alarm Service gives users the freedom to live independently in their own home, safe in the knowledge that if there is an accident or they have a fall, they can get help quickly.

Personal alarms offer peace of mind to friends and family, knowing that if there is an emergency or if assistance is needed, they will be contacted quickly by the emergency response centre.


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. The lightweight alarm can be worn as a pendant or wristband and works in the home and garden so the user is free to get on with their life, knowing that help is always at hand, should they ever need it.

  • Quick and easy to install, by the user, a friend or relative, or one of the team of local installers.
  • Simply press the button on your lightweight pendant or wristband to connect to the emergency response centre – no numbers to press or 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.
