A lifeline is a personal alarm system which allows elderly people to seek help if they fall or feel unwell. A pendant with an alarm button is typically worn around the neck or wrist. It is used to alert the company that provides the monitoring service via the lifeline unit which is installed next to the individual’s telephone.

Further information on lifelines can be found on this section of the Bracknell Forestcare website.

Housing Solutions in Maidenhead run the lifeline service for RBWM. Contact the Home Assistance team by phone (01628 545000) or by email if you have any questions on applying for partly funded lifelines.
