Telephone line for people suffering with Dementia or Alzheimer's
This telephone line is designed for people suffering with Dementia or Alzheimer's living in Sheltered Accommodation, Care Homes and Nursing Homes.
With our Phone Only telephone service for care homes we sort everything out for you, making it as stress free as we can.
We'll make the whole thing simple - We'll check what services are available in the care home room or Sheltered Accommodation, and If there's already a working line there we can have it up and running within a couple of days. If we need to put in a new line, it usually takes up to 15 working days.
With our Direct Connect service, you can make it simple for people to contact to a friend or family memmebr at a push of a buttion.
Our simple Direct Connect telephone service automatically connects the caller to a single telephone number chosen by you, landline or mobile.
It is not possible to make outgoing calls to any other number, including 999 emergency calls, although incoming calls are not restricted unless specified by you.
All your caller have to do is lift the handset or press a button and the call will connect them to the nominated number 24/7.
Direct Connect is, therefore, a cost-effective and simple way to enable your a loved one suffering with dementia or Alzheimer's to remain in contract
Unlike BT, TalkTalk, Virgin and Plusnet we DO NOT charge any call connection fees on ANY of our chargeable calls, With the exception of some calls that attract connection charges (eg Directory Enquiries) saving you a massive 100% on every changeable call that you make.
This can make a substantial impact to a phone bill when you consider BT Retail charge 21 pence* to make the connection (*1st September 2017 connection charge)
No long term contract and no termination fees. All new line and like for like transfers are on a 30 day rolling contract.
New lines or transfers from TalkTalk, Virgin or Sky are also on just a 30 day contract. Line rental billing is done via Direct Debt and there are NO line disconnection changes when you stop or move the telephone line.
Transferring TalkTalk and Virgin lines - To transfer these types of telephone lines requires us to send a BT engineer to the local exchange to move the line. The £75 transfer cost covers the cost for the BT engineer to do this. * UK mobile networks O2, Orange, T-Mobile, Vodafone, H3. Other mobile networks are charged at a different rate.
