Our personal assistive technology, also called ‘technology enabled living’, is a suite of technology solutions that are designed to give peace of mind and help people live confidently and independently in their homes and communities. Our technology packages can be tailored to meet individual needs, and are designed to improve safety, security, and wellbeing.
Anyone who needs assistance with daily living tasks or who wants to stay safe and independent can benefit from technology enabled living. This includes older people, people with physical disabilities or learning disabilities, and those who live or work alone in potentially risky or harmful situations.
Technology enabled living is another way of saying assistive technology. You may also hear it called telecare technology or support, or you might recognise some of the more commonly-used technology, such as pendant alarms, wrist alarms and pull cords.
The devices in our packages are connected directly to our 24-hour support team, and depending on the set up can involve them calling a caregiver or loved one when you need support or help. If a device detects a potential issue, such as a fall or an extreme temperature within a room, an alert is sent to our team, who can then check in and take appropriate action as needed.
To get started, simply contact us to arrange a consultation. Our team will work with you, and your loved ones, if you wish, to assess your needs, choose the technology solutions that are most appropriate and recommend a package that meets your personal requirements. Our friendly team of installers will then visit to set up and help you use the technology. It is designed to be easy to use and user-friendly, and we can provide ongoing support as needed.
Our range of technology solutions and devices includes: personal alarms, falls support, memory support, independence support, safety and security at home and winter chills support. We work with our customers to identify the solutions that will be most beneficial to you, and all our packages can be customised to meet your specific needs.
