Harborough Lifeline run a service that may be of interest to you

They offer an emergency alarm service for anyone who feels vulnerable or alone, whatever their age or needs.  Customers may include:

  • Those with physical disabilities
  • Those with learning difficulties
  • Those who live alone
  • Those with Sensory Impairment
  • Those with limited mobility or those who are at risk of falling
  • Anyone who may feel alone or vulnerable for any reason

A lifeline needn’t be a permanent arrangement. Sometimes clients may only require the service for a few months as additional support at a particularly difficult time such as during an illness or following an operation or discharge from hospital.

Call them on  01858 464499 or email at lifeline@harborough.gov.uk
