I have a careline system through the local authority. You can either
choose to have one that goes around your neck or, like me, the one
that is worn around your wrist. Any emergency whatsoever, you press
the button on the pendant and it automatically connects you to the call
centre, and after speaking to you, send whatever is needed ie. doctor
ambulance or a member of your family to assist you.
I pay quarterley for mine and I think it works out approximately £1.50
a week, but it gives you and your family total reassurance should you
need help, so well worth it in my mind.
Hope this helps, take care
