Call4Care is help at the touch of a button 24 hours a day. Call4Care HomeCare brings peace-of-mind and help to elderly people living independently. With a simple press of a button, a two-way communication is activated with the Call4Care Response Centre Operator, who will help no matter what the need or emergency.

How does it work?

  1. Pressing the red button on the CarePhone (or its remote Panic Button) alerts our Response Centre Operator and initiates the two-way speakerphone function, allowing the client to speak to our operator ± even if he or she can’t get to the CarePhone itself.
  2. If the client is unable to speak, our operator will still be able to take appropriate action as the client’s personal details and home address is instantly displayed on our system the moment an alert is received.
  3. Our Response Centre will immediately notify the listed family member or friend, and advise them of the situation and response details; our operator will remain in contact with the client until assistance arrives.


What does Call4Care Homecare include?

Call4Care Care Phone equipped with a portable panic button and powerful speakerphone function, enabling communication with the Call4Care Operator (usually from anywhere within the client’s home).


  • Call4Care Panic Button Pendant, conveniently worn around the neck or wrist and within easy reach – meaning help is always at hand!
  • Call4Care is there for you night and day with monitoring & assistance no matter what the emergency.
  • Call4Care is partnered with ER24, providing around the clock ER24 Medical Emergency Service.
