Carer phone

Apologies if this is the wrong area to post this question.
I've an elderly relative that has a BT Carer phone (the one that has a wireless pendent & rings round friends and relatives in an emergency - say for example if they fall).
The phone is about 6-7 years old now and has gone on the blink (it still works as a phone, but neither pendents work remotley.
It doesn't appear that BT sell these now and the only ones I can find are either ones without pendants or refurbished 2nd hand models on eBay (which we'd like to avoid).

So does anyone know of a similar device or indeed a service that we can subscribe to. Ideally we'd want the phone to ring round familiy (as the current one did) but if it was a dedicated helpline we'd be open to that providing it didn't cost a fortune.

Many thanks!
