Suffolk Careline

Suffolk Careline is a not for profit organisation working in partnership with Suffolk County Council to provide a 24 hour monitoring and emergency response telecare service. Clients have a alarm unit and pendant to press if help is needed.

Telecare systems are available from several providers, however this is the only service that provides an emergency response service throughout Suffolk for the elderly and vulnerable adults and is particularly useful in rural areas. When a client presses the pendant they will be visited by a responder trained in first aid, manual handling and has a lifting cushion in case the client has fallen. The service operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and we aim to attend a call within 45 minutes.
