Puts help within reach

With a relative, friend or professionally trained responder no further away than a press of a button, seniors can live at home for longer.

Response by Doro is a new, easy-to-use service from Doro, created to give seniors and you as relatives extra security, every day. By pressing the assistance button on the Doro phone, the user can easily call for help. First the alarm contacts relatives, and if you can’t answer it is automatically sent to one of our alarm centres, where there is staff on duty 24/7. The service is available on selected Doro phones. However, you as relatives can use any iOS or Android smartphone.

While other security alarms only function in the home, Response by Doro is different. The service is mobile and functions when the senior takes a walk, visits friends, goes shopping, exercises – in short, lives life to the full!

How the service works

  1. The registered contacts are contacted with phone calls, text messages and GPS coordinates.

  1. If none of the relatives reply, the alarm is automatically sent to one of Doro’s alarm centres.

5. The alarm centre contacts the senior’s relatives or, if needed, arranges other assistance.

Qualified care staff send the help you need

If none of the registered loved ones can answer the alarm, it is sent to one of our 24-hour alarm centres, where qualified personnel assess what type of assistance the senior needs. It’s comforting to know that someone is always within reach.
