Telecare, WATCH and home response alarms

Telecare, WATCH and home response alarms

Telecare is a system of equipment that helps people to stay safe in their home. It is designed for people with any form of dementia, a mobility or sensory impairment, or mental health or learning disabilities. A telecare system is made up of sensors around the home which send an alert to the emergency response service when a sensor is triggered - for example, if someone falls over or leaves the gas on.

Wandsworth Council provides a telecare service, but you can also find independent advice and information here as well as other services. The WATCH lifeline alarm is a pendant that you can wear and then use to contact the emergency response service by simply pressing the red button in an emergency. This is also a Wandsworth Council service.
