Equipment to help live-in family/carers

Most of our Telecare equipment is linked to our 24 hour Lifeline monitoring service who will organise an appropriate response should a sensor be activated. 

However, if you have a live-in friend or family member who helps to care for you, there is equipment that may be able to help.

Equipment to help live-in family/carers
Carers Pager All of the equipment below can be linked wirelessly to a carers pager which will raise an alert should a sensor be activated.

It can be carried around the home and garden allowing relative freedom for the carer with the knowledge that they will be able to act quickly in response to an alert.

Bed/Chair Occupancy

This sensor can be used to alert to someone getting out of bed or up from a chair, it can be linked to a delay switch or to activate lamps to help prevent night time falls.

Enuresis sensor

This sensor provides a discreet and efficient means to detect bed-wetting as it occurs.

Epilepsy sensor

This sensor monitors a person with epilepsy while they sleep to provide an early alert should a seizure occur.

Fall Detectors Fall detectors will automatically detect a fall of the wearer.  There are 3 different types available depending on the needs of the person.
Flood detector

This sensor is activated when it comes into contact with water, it is used for people with memory loss to prevent flooding in the home.

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

Pressure mats can be placed around the home to raise an alert when someone is approaching an area which may pose a risk.

Property Exit Sensor

This sensor is designed to monitor the safety of people with memory issues who may be prone to leave their homes at inappropriate times.

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.
