With Telecare you can have sensors fitted in your home which will be triggered and alert someone for help if you get into trouble. To receive this service you must be referred by social services. A full range of environment sensors can be installed depending on needs and if you fit the eligibility criteria
These can detect if you:
- You fall over
- You leave your bed or home
- You have a seizure
- Require medication
The sensors will also detect risks and warnings in you home, sensor will alert us where:
- The gas on
- Water is left running (like a bath overflowing)
- Smoke and heat is detected
- Carbon monoxide detected.
Our officers will know when your sensor has been activated and which sensor has been triggered. They will speak to you through a base unit attached to your telephone. If you need to speak with someone, you can contact an officer by pressing the alarm button on the unit, the pendant, or the fall detector if one has been issued
