Key safe for elderly at home

Add a key safe for £65.99

If you live alone or you worry how help will reach you in an emergency, a key safe provides a convenient and secure way to store spare door keys.

The weatherproof box can be fitted to an exterior, outdoor wall made of concrete or brick. You can share the key code with your friends, family or neighbours. If you share the code with Taking Care, the Emergency Resolution Centre will only pass it onto the emergency services if you are unable to get to the door.

The emergency services will then be able to quickly gain access to your home without delay and without causing damage.

The key safe can only be opened using a unique four digit code that you set. It can be fitted in a discreet location so it cannot be seen by a passerby. 

It is recommended you have a key safe with your personal alarm so help can always reach you.

Key safes and VAT

Many customers do not need to pay VAT on their personal alarms.

This is because the alarms are categorised as VAT exempt by the UK government if you, or the person you are buying the alarm for, have a condition that requires regular medication or are registered disabled.

However, key safes do not qualify for VAT exemption, so you will always pay VAT on this part of your order.
