Herts Careline and Hertfordshire County Council recognise the enormous contribution that carers make to their local communities - that’s why we’ve joined forces to develop a range of subsidised services that are specifically tailored to help support the invaluable role of carers and those that they look after.
If you have to pop out for an appointment, or to work, or to even take a break, you many feel worried that the person you care for is left on their own for a little while. Having a Herts Careline pendant community alarm could relieve some of the worry as you know that your loved one can summon help from us at the press of a button. Some equipment can even link to your mobile phone as well as to our control room, so you know we’re always there for back up if you ever need it. It’s peace of mind at its most needed.
Helping carers in many situations
Our assistive technology services are local and offer around-the-clock support, providing peace of mind to carers that their loved ones are safe and secure when they can’t be there. Our award-winning service provides emergency assistance when it’s needed and helps carers to balance the many pressures that they face.

Our range of services provide a direct connection between our 24/7 Control Centre and your loved one’s home. Modern technology will detect a problem and alert one of our a highly trained and caring call operators – they will assess the situation and summon help if it is needed at any time of the day or night.
We understand that each carer’s situation is unique, so we offer services and equipment that reflect the level of support that is right for you and your loved one.
