Who we are

Home monitoring equipment to help you stay independent and living in your own home. Including 24 hour telecare and pendants.

Description

24 hour Technology to help you live independently at home.  Assistive living technology from our Independent Living at Home Service offers an alternative to home care and residential care for people who need support to live independently in their own home for longer.

Knowing help is always available puts your mind at rest as well as making you feel safe, and helps you live independently.

How a Telecare alarm works

The alarm is a pendant that you can wear on your wrist, around your neck, or just keep close to you. If you need help, push the button on your pendant and this will put you through to our 24 hour monitoring centre. When your alarm goes off, we'll call to check what's wrong and what support you need. If we can’t hear you or you don’t answer our call, we'll contact your next of kin and ask them to check on you. If we can't contact a next of kin, we'll come out to make sure you're safe. In urgent situations, we'll also call the emergency services on your behalf.

Remote monitors In addition to the alarm pendant, we offer a range of remote monitors that automatically raise an alert if you're at risk in your home. These can alert us to:

  • fire - carbon monoxide
  • extreme changes in temperature
  • a fall in your home
  • floods
  • bogus callers

Available equipment also includes: 

  • medication reminders
  • door sensors
  • bed and chair sensors

 How to apply

If you'd like a demonstration of the service, we can visit you at our home or a place of your choice, at a time that's convenient to you. Visit our website for our online forms or contact us for more information.
