Our service

Anyone over 18 years old who lives in Sheffield can use our emergency care alarm service.

You may feel you need it because you live alone, or feel vulnerable because of disability, a medical condition, or harassment.

Whatever the reason, City Wide Care Alarms could help you remain safe, secure and independent in your home.

We offer you a simple to operate personal care alarm that puts you in touch with specially trained staff at our emergency call monitoring centre. They’ll help you to resolve any problems you may have.

Unlike some other care alarm services, we also provide professional support workers, who can respond in an emergency at any time of the day or night, 365 days a year.

Our support workers are specially trained and carry equipment, so they can provide professional emergency personal care and safely help people up off the floor if they have fallen.

This means you know you’ll be in safe hands, you won’t have to rely on family, friends or neighbours being available to come to your assistance and they won't risk injury, either to you or themselves by trying to lift you off the floor.

Personal alarm options

There are now five ways you can wear your mobile alarm button. You can wear your button as a pendant around your neck, on your wrist, on a clip or attached to a key ring. The costs for these options are included in the overall cost of the service.
 
For an additional charge you can have a wrist watch which includes your alarm button as part of it.
