Seniors Alert Scheme

The objective of the Seniors Alert Scheme is to encourage community support for vulnerable older people in our communities through the provision of personal monitored alarms to enable older persons, of limited means, to continue to live securely in their homes with confidence, independence and peace of mind.

Funding is available under the scheme towards the purchase of equipment, eg. personal alarm and pendant, by a registered organisation. Funding is made available by this Department.

How to Register

Since September 2015,  the equipment is funded through Pobal and made available through community, voluntary and not-for-profit organisations registered with Pobal under the Seniors Alert Scheme.

Community and voluntary groups are now required to register with Pobal under the Scheme.

You can register your group and find more information on Pobal’s website (link is external).  Alternatively you can email Pobal at or contact them by telephone  at +353 (0)1 511 7222.
