Care on Call

Customer and Care on Call warden

Salford Care on Call supports people who want to remain living in their own home. We're a mobile response service that will help you stay safe and independent and give your family peace of mind.

With Care on Call, there's no need to worry about being at home alone - if you have a fall, accident or any other medical emergency, help is available at the press of a button. We're here 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year and if you call for help, we'll respond immediately.

We can also provide an optional weekly visit to check on your wellbeing.

How does it work?

We'll provide you with a special alarm unit that works with your telephone which has a pendent that can be worn around your neck or wrist. Both of these have a button that you can press if you need help, and this connects you directly to our control centre where our trained operators will assess the situation and either send a warden to your home or offer advice and assistance. You don't have to lift the receiver or even be in the same room as the alarm unit.

All calls to the control centre are voice recorded and randomly monitored in order that we can ensure that the highest standards of service are maintained.

You just need a modern telephone socket and a standard electrical socket nearby.
