Community Groups have been applying for Social Alarms for persons over 65 years of age living in their Community since 1996.
Originally called Community Support For Older Persons
In 2010 the grant scheme was reviewed and is now called the Seniors Alert Scheme.
The Seniors Alert Scheme since Sept 2015 is been managed by Pobal
The objective of the Seniors Alert Scheme is to encourage community support for vulnerable older people in our communities through the provision of personal monitored alarms
to enable older persons, of limited means, to continue to live securely in their homes with confidence, independence and peace of mind.
