I was thinking of getting a panic button for my nan incase she has any trouble. Im looking for one that automatically rings a number or 999. Are these possible to get?

Thanks,

Yes they're available - an uncle of mine had one - pricey £340pa.

The care people would come round if he pressed it and they didn't get a reply on the phone.

One option is to fit a digi dialler to the alarm system (if your nan has one), also you would need BT to fit a Redcare line, and the panic button would be linked direct to 999, a half decent digi dialler will cost you £80ish, good luck:thumbsup:

Try this link:[url]http://www.redcare.bt.com

ring up ur local council.......i help set these up in my area....tis called harrow helpline...all the person has to do is press the button and an operator will speak on speakerphone in the house.......if the person who pressed the button doesnt communicate they call 999.......its a really good service.

my late mo in law had one thro local authority think it was around £50 per month but they call the person who the alarm is for first to check if it's a false call or not then they usually have 3 nominated no's to call and if no response they will send someone out. Usually you also need one of those combination key safes to aid with gaining entry in case of locked doors hope it helps x

my local council has a scheme called lifeline it starts from £5 a week tho, i am sure your council will do something similar

Yale (Distress alert system) do a version - was at Focus DIY today and they had them on the clearance table for £25 - down from £50.
Seems very good - the pendant has a microphone and small speaker. Not yet tested it though.

my mother has one fitted in her house - and a pendant thing round her neck in case she falls in the bathroom etc - the house is privately owned - the service is provided by the local authority which costs about £20 a month (it was fitted after my mother had a fall and was unable to move for 6 hours.....)

she lives a good half hours drive from her nearest and dearest
