It can be worn on the wrist or as a pendant. It is designed to offer security and reassurance to the vulnerable at home by providing an easy and convenient way for friends and relatives to keep in touch or call direct to Welbeing’s contact centre. At the same time the Minifone provides rapid access to assistance should the need arise. The user, family member or carer can nominate up to three telephone numbers to be called in the event of an emergency.
