What is it and how does it work?
Our personal wristband has an identification (ID) number on it that is unique to you and also has Bolton at Home's Careline telephone number on it. It’s ideal if you’re away from home on a daily basis. For example, if you're out for a walk or shopping. It’s also ideal if you have any type of medical condition or allergies which may need to be known in a critical situation.
The wristband is available to anyone, any age who wants to feel safer when out and about. Should the person with the wristband be found ill, injured or just in need of assistance, the highly visible wristband has Careline's number on it so the person helping can call Careline.
