What are telephones and health alarms?

Sensor, health and telephone alarms help people who are living independently to stay safe at home, or on the go. Monitors can detect falls and wandering to alert your carer or a family member if any accidents occur. Phones and alarms are available for a range of sensory requirements to alert you to a call or doorbell.
