Gosport Community Alarm Service 

Lifelines

We are  able to provide a 'lifeline' alarm service to older people in the community which provides peace of mind for our customers and those that care for them. The service is a telephone-based alarm system that is provided 24 hours day, every day of the year, providing help, support and security.

The alarm system is made up of an alarm base unit and a pendant, which can be worn around the neck or on the wrist.

How Does it Work?

 

  • We connect the alarm base unit to your telephone line

 

  • If the pendant is pressed there is instant two-way speech conatct with our specialist call centre, Chichester Careline

 

  • Our call centre will contact the emergency services, next of kin or our staff if required

 

How Much Does it Cost?

 

There are two options. If you wish to discuss the options, please call our office using the numbers below or send us an email.

All prices include 24-hour alarm monitoring, rental and maintenance and include VAT.*
Payments are made over a 48 week period, but the service is provided to you 52 weeks of the year.

Option 1  £3.25 inc VAT* per week

 

  • 24 Hour alarm monitoring

 

Option 2  £9.84 inc VAT* per week

 

  • 24 Hour alarm monitoring
  • 24 Hour emergency response from our staff if required

 

Please note that if you choose Option 2, you will need a key safe fitted if you don’t already have one so that GBC staff can retrieve a front door key to gain entry to your property in the event of an emergency. Although we do not fit key safes we can recommend organisations who can.


* You are exempt from VAT on OPTION 1 if you declare that you are chronically sick or disabled (for example, if you suffer from an ongoing illness such as heart problems or arthritis). There is a partial exemption on OPTION 2. You do not need to be registered disabled to claim exemption from VAT - please ask us for an exemption form.*
