Under the Seniors Alert Scheme, personal alarms are available to older people for personal reassurance and security in the home. 

To qualify for the grant, you must be over 65 and living alone or with another eligible person. The grant covers the cost of purchasing and installing the monitored personal alarm and additional pendant (the annual monitoring fee is paid by the grant recipient). 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Family Carers Ireland is one of the community groups registered to operate the scheme and do so in most counties. 

Further information on the Seniors Alert Scheme and eligibility criteria for the grant is available here or your local Family Carers Ireland support centre.
