Eircode now Required Under Seniors Alert Scheme


It is good practice to request eircodes from the Participants as this will help the installers find the address. Many addresses in Ireland are not unique, and the eircode allows them to readily identify the correct address.


In the event that a pendant is pressed and the Emergency Services are requested.

The Ambulance Control will request the Eircode .it will save time and maybe even a life .

For that reason, Eircodes will be a Mandatory field in the new Seniors Alert Scheme . So let’s start getting into the habit of requesting and checking Eircodes. If the participants do not know their eircode., you can search quickly by clicking on the  

       Eircode Finder website

The CareLink Landline .

The CareLink alarm  base unit is  connected to the  Landline connection and an electrical socket.

The person can activate a call to the 24/7  Monitoring Centre by Pressing the Red Button on the Unit or the Button worn as a wrist watch our around the Neck.


No Landline No Problem


TASK Community Care can supply a CareLink  alarm and Pendant that uses the GSM network to phone our 24hour monitoring centre  when the red button on the unit or the button on the pendant is activated .

The   sim card  is placed in and left in the base unit. A monthly  fee is charged and paid   by a bank standing order to TASK Community Care or the older person can pay  annual fee.  

A grant is available for a Base & Pendant GSM for persons over 65years of Age when applied for by registered community groups with Pobal.
