Get help anywhere, 24-hours a day from £19.99 per month (£23.99 including VAT)

The Mobile Alarm works as a personal alarm with mobile calling and has useful features that give you the confidence to stay active at home and out-and-about.

By pressing the emergency button on the front you can speak with Taking Care's Emergency Resolution Team through the Mobile Alarm, 24-hours a day. If you need further help, the Emergency Resolution team will call your friends, family or emergency services.

Personal alarm features

  • The Mobile Alarm automatically calls the Emergency Resolution Team if it detects you have fallen at home, in the garden or when you are out and about.^
  • The Mobile Alarm will tell the Emergency Resolution Team where you are if you fall or press the pendant button.**
  • Alerts and notifications can be set up to provide helpful reminders for important events such as appointments or medications.

Mobile calling features

  • You can stay connected with loved ones by making calls to two family members or friends saved as contacts to the Mobile Alarm.
  • These can be white-listed so you will only receive calls from your saved contacts; removing the worry of potential nuisance or unknown calls.

How the Mobile Alarm works

  • There are no phone numbers to remember in an emergency with a one-touch emergency button that you press to speak with Taking Care's Emergency Resolution Team.
  • The Mobile Alarm has three large buttons that are easy to press to access the device's features.
  • On the day of delivery, you will receive a call on behalf of Taking Care to talk you through the device and help set up any contacts, reminders and settings that you require.
  • You will also receive two 'check-in' calls each year to make sure you are happy with the Mobile Alarm. Taking Care will check your contacts saved to the device and that any alerts and notifications are up-to-date too.

    Unlike in-home personal alarms, a base unit is not needed and you don't need a telephone landline either.

Please note: If you have a pacemaker you cannot wear the Mobile Alarm around your neck. Instead, you could attach the device to a belt. Although advanced technology is used to detect a fall, the Mobile Alarm has been designed to detect only hard falls.

If the Mobile Alarm is lost or damaged, you would need to order a replacement to continue benefiting from the 24-hour monitored alarm service.

How can the Mobile Alarm be worn?

You can wear the Mobile Alarm around your neck or clipped to a belt. A lanyard and belt clip is included with your order. If you have a pacemaker you cannot wear the Mobile Alarm around your neck. Instead, you could attach the device to a belt.

Top of section

Does the Mobile Alarm detect falls?

The in-built fall sensor may not detect every fall as it is designed to detect hard, unobstructed falls. If you can, you must ensure that you press the emergency button on the pendant if you fall. The fall alarm sensor uses an algorithm to recognise the difference between ‘hard’ falls and other movements. Like many similar devices on the market, it cannot guarantee to detect all falls because it is dependent on where it is worn and the amount of shock or impact from the fall.

Top of section

Does the Mobile Alarm work anywhere?

The Mobile Alarm will work in the UK, wherever there is a 3G or 4G cellular network to communicate, subject to atmospheric conditions, buildings, or other forms of interference that can block the device's connection to GPS satellites. A GPS satellite network must be available for the Mobile Alarm to determine its location. The Mobile Alarm will not work outside the UK. You can check predicted coverage in your area on the Ofcom website

Top of section

How does the geo-fencing work?

Some people find it reassuring to set up geographic boundaries that trigger an alert to loved ones if the Mobile Alarm moves outside of these pre-set locations. You will receive a call on behalf of Taking Care when you first get the Mobile Alarm, to set up any contacts, reminders or safety zones that you want.

Top of section

Can I wear the Mobile Alarm in the bath or shower?

No, the Mobile Alarm is not water-resistant, so should not be worn in the bath or shower. If you would like a GPS pendant that can be worn in the bath or shower, the Taking Care Anywhere is water-resistant and includes fall detection.

How do I make an emergency alarm call?
