Welfare Emergency Team

Hi. My mother is very frail and registered disabled. She is prone to falls and has an emergency bracelet which calls for help via the landline. Yesterday I found that she had no landline and as such the unit is disconnected putting her at high risk of injury without means of calling for help.
A line check said the fault was external and an engineer would come in 2 days.
Too long to wait so called Customer Help who told me that emergency welfare could speed things up and gave me their number.
"Emergency" office was closed at 19:30!
Called today - to India - who were of no help at all. Kept telling me to call my "service provider" who will call them. Asked why referring to BT in 3rd party sense if they were BT too?
Was told "You should not be calling us directly" despite repeating that BT C/Services TOLD me to! Explained Mum's dangerous situation and that all I was doing was trying to get a earlier call.
No change; simply droned-off same responses as before.
I asked if BT C/S wouldn't simply refer me back to her because that's what they did last night.
Response still "I must contact service provider...."
Meanwhile Mum is STILL at risk!
Shoddy, useless, incompetent & UNACCEPTABLE behaviour from all concerned at BT!
