“Grandma had a fall just before we were due to go on holiday. Knowing that alarm calls are monitored 24 hours a day enabled us to enjoy our stay.”

As many families prepare to take their well-earned annual summer vacation, their sense of anticipation can often be tinged with concern about elderly friends or relatives that they are leaving behind for a while.

With this in mind, Cotswold District Council is reminding local residents that the Cotswold Careline 24 hour emergency alarm service is available to provide the reassurance that they seek.

The service provides elderly and vulnerable people with round the clock access to a trained operator at the push of a button.  Users can access a professional, friendly and experienced team who are trained to assess a situation, reassure the individual and then call a nominated contact or emergency services if necessary.

The Cotswold Careline team is always happy to have an informal chat about the benefits of the service with potential clients and can even arrange a home visit – without any obligation – if required.
