Seniors Alert Scheme
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.
