12,600 Community Alarms Across Surrey

Telecare is the name given to the range of sensors which link with the traditional community or lifeline alarms. These are designed to assist people of all ages to live more independently by monitoring their safety around the home and alerting a 24 hour care centre should a potential emergency occur.

Each borough and district community alarm team supports people in their local areas with around 12,600 community alarms being used across Surrey and almost 600 telecare installations.
