Seniors Alert Scheme
The objective of the Seniors Alert Scheme (SAS) 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 by a registered organisation i.e. personal alarm and pendant. Funding is made available by the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government.
The equipment will be funded via Pobal and made available through community, voluntary and not-for-profit organisations registered with Pobal under the SAS.
