The Cornwall Housing Independent Living Service offers a 24 hour 'Lifeline Alarm,' providing an instant response at the touch of a button. The service provides a home safety and personal security system that enables people to live independently within their own homes. This is achieved through the clever combination of a 24 hour telephone link to the monitoring centre through your Lifeline home unit. We also offer additional services in the form of Fall Detectors (linked to Lifeline), Wireless Smoke Alarms (linked to Lifeline) and Key Safes.
The service makes a real difference to people’s lives, not only for those using the service to maintain their independence, but also their families and loved ones.
The service involves the provision of a telephone link 24 hours a day between your home and the monitoring centre. All that is required is a telephone line and an electrical power point. Should you press your pendant, or the button on the Lifeline Alarm, a message is sent to the monitoring centre where trained operators take the most appropriate action, whether it be contacting a family member, neighbour, doctor or the emergency services.
The system can be used at any time of the day or night, 365 days a year. Whatever the reason, if you hear a sound in the middle of the night, if you have an accident or incident in the home or suffer from a medical emergency the operator will arrange help as quickly as possible. The operator is also there to provide friendly support with a reassuring voice to alleviate any distress or to put your mind at rest.

The service is available for anyone of any age who would like to feel safer, more protected and independent in their own home. The system provides numerous benefits for:
