  1. I am a 68year old woman, retired and only receive £737 52pence. I live alone and want to know if I’m entitled to any more benefits. I have diabetes 2, chronic kidney disease, asthma, gout, under active thyroid and high blood pressure. I take a lot of medication so therefore my health isn’t good. My state pension is the only money I have coming in and I have no savings

  2. Hello Ric,

    Thank you for your comment.

    Unfortunately, our systems are only available in the UK and Ireland.

    I do hope you find a provider based in the US. I apologise that we could not be of further assistance today.

    Kind Regards,

    Lifeline24.

  3. I am a 88year old lady,been widowed for nearly two years
    I get careers allowance but wondered if I could get heating allowance
    I’m now living with my daughter

  4. I would like to know if my wife,who will be eighty in a few days time,and myself,I am nearly seventy four are eligible for any benefits in addition to our state pensions ,we have been living in France for the last eighteen years.

  5. I am my parents power of attorney and now need advise as my father was living off investments and his state pension. His investments money has now run out of I’m increasingly concerned about his finances. He rents a private property and currently also have private carers for him and his mother. He no longer has any money. I’d appreciate if someone could advise me
    What he can do.

    • Charlotte, I hope you have found a solution and your father is doing ok now, but just incase ur struggleing, try calling welfare rights, you can get the pho e number online. Or the citizens advise bureau, failing everything else try contacting ur local mp, often they will try and help with issues like yours, there may be a local comunity chouncil funding to help pay for care, ect.

  6. I’m 74 and live alone I get mobility and lower rate living allowance I have now got inflammatory arthritis and I have had to have been living at my sons as I couldn’t walk or move I am now back home and although my sister comes in to help me I need a personal alarm

    • Hello Joan,
      Thank you for your comment – I hope you’re well. It sounds like you would benefit very much from a personal alarm. You can order over the telephone on 0800 999 0400 or on our website by clicking the pricing button above. You’ll be eligible for VAT exemption since you have arthritis, so you won’t need to pay any VAT at all. You can also have somebody else, such as your sister or one of your sons, order an alarm on your behalf if that is easier. If you have any other questions about our personal alarm service, please don’t hesitate to give us a free call on the number above.
      Kind regards,
      Katie

  7. is it possible to speak to somebody who can help me with carers benefit I am an 80 year old
    and help my wife with washing, cooking, shopping, managing household bills and taking her to medical appointments

    • Hello Brian,
      Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, we’re unable to give individual advice but we’d recommend contacting Citizens Advice for more information. You can click here to visit their website. You’ll be able to call their national advice line or find your nearest branch by entering your postcode. We hope this is helpful.
      Kind regards,
      Lifeline24

  8. Can you help please I have been told I could be eligible to benefits as am 84 and have health problems and need. Is there a form that could be sent to me by post as not so clever on modern technology. Thank you.

    • Hello Angela,

      Thank you for your comment. I’m afraid we don’t have any suitable forms to send you, but I would advise that you get in touch with your local branch of Age UK. To find your local branch, click here to visit the Age UK website. Then scroll down the page and enter your postcode where it says, “We can provide expert support with claiming benefits.” This will give you the phone number for your nearest branch – you’ll be able to give them a call and get all the advice you need.

      I hope this information is helpful.
      Kind regards,

  9. I am 65yrs and I’m enquiring about extra money that some people get for having to get taxi,s as they are disabled and don’t drive this is on top of their dla I have to get a taxi back and forth from shops or visiting as my disability prevents me from walking can I receive extra and what does it come under

    • Hello Andrea,

      I couldn’t find any information about financial support for taxi costs on the gov.uk website. However, this may be a benefit offered by your local council. Therefore, I would recommend contacting your local council directly to find out more. Click here to enter your postcode and go to your local council’s website. You may also wish to find out whether there is a Dial-a-ride service in your local area.

      I hope this is helpful.
      Kind regards,
      Lifeline24

Next day delivery. Clear instructions for set up and lovely team to take us through the set up test process. Really impressed that the alarm button worked from the bottom of the garden!

I ordered the unit yesterday, it was delivered today, and I’m going to install it at my mother’s house tomorrow. Massive kudos to Rachael in your Customer Service team, who was exceptional, and made the whole process very easy.

Everything went well with ordering, delivery and ease of set up How my Mum gets on with it is another matter Time will tell but if she presses the pendant regularly as she doesn't understand it then I will have to re assess

The order came through very quickly. Filling in the form to register was a bit tedious but that is done and I look forward to being fully set up... but hope i will never need to use the service!
