Both Dundee and Angus operate social care response services whose staff will support you in an emergency. They use a range of sensors and alarms to help people who might fall, have fits or other emergencies. This is often called telecare, or community alarm. There are also smoke and carbon monoxide alarms that use under-the-pillow vibrating pads, for deaf people who won’t hear the warning sound.
