Everyone knows that the best place for people, whatever their age, is in their own home living as independently as possible. But sometimes it can feel that staying at home is just not an option.
Blackpool Vitaline could change all that. We offer a 24 hour link to a Blackpool based call centre, So, in an emergency, if you fall or have a sudden illness, or if you need advice or support for any reason, our professional team is just a phone call away.
You can join Blackpool Vitaline permanently or just for a few weeks - for example, when your carer is on holiday or if you need extra reassurance when you have just left hospital. We can also provide other support services.
So, whatever happens, Blackpool Vitaline can make sure you get help, giving you and your friends and relatives, peace of mind.
Blackpool Vitaline provides their 24 hour/365 day a year service through a telephone link that uses your existing telephone socket. It has a 30 metre (90ft) range and will work through closed doors. The telephone comes complete with an emergency pendant that you can wear around your neck, or clipped to your belt.
