Equipment for Memory problems

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.
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.

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.
