Welcome to the Seniors Alert Scheme portal. Here you will find all the information and links you will need to make and submit an organisation registration.
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 with one year's monitoring. The subsequent associated monitoring and service charges must be paid by the participant. The equipment will be funded by Pobal and made available through community, voluntary and not-for-profit organisations registered with Pobal under the SAS.
The scheme is funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development. Organisations are reminded that this is a rolling process with no closing date for receipt of completed registrations.
Organisation Registration Process:
Organisation registrations under the SAS can be made online. You can save a draft version of your registration prior to submission. We would strongly advise you to save the registration form as you complete it in order to minimise the risk of registration data being lost. Please read over your registration carefully before you submit, as you cannot edit it after this point.
You have three months from the date of the creation of your account with Pobal to complete and submit your registration form for approval to be a registered organisation under the scheme. Organisations that have not completed the registration process fully within the three months will be automatically removed from the SAS online system. Please contact Pobal at email@example.com or by phone on 01 5117222 if you require any assistance.
In order to assist with your registration please find the following documents which will be of assistance to organisations interested in registering to operate the SAS:
