Are you worried about someone you love, but can’t always be there with them?

11 Apr

Due to collaboration between City Wide Care Alarms (CWCA) and Westfield Health, CWCA are now offering a FREE six week trial of a ‘3rings plug’.

This can help ensure a vulnerable person is safe their home.

A regularly used appliance, e.g. a kettle, is plugged into the 3rings plug and then, when that appliance is used, up to 10 family members can get a message via smartphone app, email, text or automated calls, which assures them that the person is up and active.

Time bands can also be set, e.g. 5am to 9 am or 3pm to 6pm, so that if the appliance isn’t used between these times an alert is sent out instead. The plug uses inbuilt mobile technology so all that is needed is a mobile phone signal.

After the six week free trial, prices are £15.99 per month for a minimum 12 month contract, or £18.99 a month for a ‘pay as you go cancel anytime’ deal.

Anyone interested in having one of these on a six week free trial should contact City Wide Care Alarms on 0114 242 0351.
