Cotswold Careline

Celebrating 30 years

Cotswold Careline has been providing peace of mind for 30 years.  To celebrate we are giving away a free reusable cotton shopping bag to both existing and new clients (subject to availability, limit of one per household).

What is Cotswold Careline?

Cotswold Careline is a 24 hour emergency monitoring service, run by the Forest of Dean District Council offering round the clock access to a trained operator at a push of a button.  We can help, if you:

    • are in need of assistance recovering from illness or injury
    • are living or working alone, in an isolated area
    • are a victim of crime or domestic abuse
    • simply want reassurance to feel safe and confident in your own home

How does it work?

An alarm unit is plugged into your telephone socket, which links to a personal pendant that can be worn around your neck, wrist or clipped to clothing. When the button is pressed:

  • A call is triggered to the monitoring centre
  • Trained personnel will reassure and assess the situation
  • Make a call to one of your nominated contacts or the emergency services if necessary
  • With a push of a button, help will be on its way to you!

Protecting you and your home

Our team can also fit a police approved KeySafe on the day of your alarm installation, providing a secure way for assistance to enter your home in an emergency.

  • The only mechanical key safe in the UK to be Police Approved
  • Rigorously test to be as secure as your front door
  • Passcodes can be regularly changed to ensure you remain in full control of who can access your property
  • Eliminates the need for additional keys, keeping your home secure

We also stock 'Vibby' an advanced fall detector that can be worn around the wrist like a watch that automatically contacts the monitoring centre should the wearer take a fall.

Why us?

  • A personal service tailored to individual needs
  • A professional, friendly and experienced team
  • Over 30 years' experience in keeping our clients independent and safe in their own homes
