Kilkenny Carlow Contact now provides The Seniors Alert Scheme. Its aim is to encourage community support for vulnerable older people in our communities. The Alert Scheme provides grant assistance towards the purchase and installation of monitored personal alarms to enable older persons without sufficient means to continue to live securely in their homes with confidence, independence and peace of mind. A grant of 230.00 is available to each older person for their personal alarm; the only cost is the monitoring fee of 66.00 euro per year, charged by the monitoring company, which provides 24 monitoring to allow you to live safely & independently in your own home. We also now provide dual alarms, and these provide a simple solution where no landline is available. If you would like to know more about the Scheme or sign up please contact Eleanor/Mary in the Fr McGrath Centre on 056 7751988 extension 6 .
