Milton Keynes Community Alarm Service aim to provide a local, reliable, 24 hour social alarm response. The service is available to anyone living in the borough of Milton Keynes, with no restrictions to age, mental capacity or physical disability.
Telecare works in conjunction with the alarm unit offering a wide range of intelligent wireless sensors that help to manage risks within the home environment. Service users are assessed by a Telecare Officer who will make recommendations of appropriate sensors to assist any identified risks.
The Community Alarm Service will fit an alarm unit and also issue a personal alarm button, which can be worn offering additional reassurance, enabling the user to summon help at the touch of a button, no matter where they are in their home. The button on the main alarm unit may also be pressed to alert the Alarm Centre that assistance is required.
It doesn’t matter whether you own your home or rent it, anyone living within the borough of Milton Keynes can be connected to the Community Alarm Service.
There is a small weekly charge for the service; however if you receive certain qualifying means tested benefits you may be exempt from charges and will not have to pay for the alarm or Telecare.
