The equipment below can be installed to support vulnerable people living alone.  You will need an assessment  to access this type of equipment.

All of this equipment can be linked to our 24 hour Lifeline  monitoring centre.

Other Telecare equipment  may also be beneficial.

Equipment for Home Safety
Bogus Caller Button This alarm provides reassurance to vulnerable people living alone in the event of an unexpected caller.  It is also ideal for individuals in a domestic violence situation or people suffering hate crime.
Carbon Monoxide Detector (CO) Carbon Monoxide (CO) is produced when domestic fuels such as gas, coal, wood and charcoal are burned without sufficient ventilation. This sensor alerts to a build up of Carbon Monoxide (CO) in the
property.   
Gas detector with shut-off valve

These sensors are connected to a gas appliance and will raise an alarm if the appliance is turned on and left unlit.  The system will detect a build up of gas and shut the gas off on the appliance.

Lifeline pendant

The pendant can be pressed in an emergency or when help is needed.

Smoke and Heat
Detectors

Smoke detectors can be placed within the home to detect a fire (heat detectors are used in kitchens to reduce false alarms).


If, you feel you would benefit from having a Lifeline or some telecare equipment installed you should contact our First Response Team or your Social Worker/Care Manager if you already have one.

The First response team will ask you a few questions about your situation and if they feel that your request is appropriate, will escalate your enquiry to a Care Manager.
