Have feedback? Please


The Personal Alert Button (PAB) is an alert device that is currently ongoing deployment for 53 rental blocks in Singapore. The devices are installed within the senior’s household. When a distress senior triggers the alert device, it will route an alert to the senior activity centre (SAC) during office hours or to a 24/7 senior telecare call centre for triaging.

There are currently 10,000 seniors onboarded on GALE, as of 1st April 2021.
