Cordia Community Alarms and Telecare Service
Community alarms and telecare service provides a call monitoring and response service available to vulnerable elderly residents in Glasgow 24 hours a day, seven days per week.
Any vulnerable person.
Applications for community alarm systems and telecare are welcome from Social Work Services, Hospital Discharge Teams and Occupational Therapists as well as self-referrals. All applications must be passed to social work telecare team for authorisation (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Once an application has been received our admin team will process it as quickly as possible and we will endeavour to install an alarm unit as soon as practical.
The dispersed alarm unit requires a modern telephone socket with a line that can make outgoing phone calls and a nearby power socket- the alarm needs to be plugged in at all times. Depending on vulnerability additional peripherals such as linked smoke alarm, property exit sensors, bed or chair occupancy sensors, etc. can be requested from social work.
