Social Care and Support Guide - Personal alarms, security systems (telecare) and keysafes
Summary: Personal alarms and security systems (telecare) are devices that call for help if you, or someone you know, falls or has a problem at home. They range from basic alarms to intercom systems that allow family members to see who's knocking at your door.

For example, they can be triggered if:

* you fall over or out of bed
* you have a fit
* you wander off or get lost
* the room is too hot or too cold
