Banteer Lyre and Districts Community Council Alarm Scheme for the elderly
The Scheme aims to encourage community support for vulnerable older people in our communities, provides grant assistance towards the purchase and installation of equipment to enable older persons without sufficient means to continue to live securely in their homes with confidence, independence and peace of mind. The equipment eligible for grant support and the level of funding available will be updated regularly. Because the cost of equipment may change, the level of grant support may be revised to reflect the best value available in the market. Eligibility criteria for beneficiaries are set out below. Grant support can be accessed through community and voluntary groups registered with the Department. All applications for grant support must be submitted through these groups. The Department cannot accept applications for grant support from individuals. Who is eligible for grant support? A person will be eligible for grant aid if he or she is: Aged 65 years or older and of limited means or resources and
Living alone or with another person who meets the eligibility criteria and resides within geographical area of the relevant community group and able to benefit from the equipment supplied and prepared to maintain contact with the community group. How can the grant be used? Grant support will is available for: Personal monitored alert systems (which may include monitored smoke and monitored carbon monoxide detectors as part of a monitored home package) and other items to improve the security and safety of the home.
