Assistive technology (or TECS as it’s commonly known) uses the latest technology to help you remain safe, comfortable and independent in your home.
The type of technology and equipment available, ranges from self-pouring kettles and medication reminders, to personal alarms.
AT includes personal alarm systems, known as telecare, where an emergency call response team is on hand to help if needed. Alerts can come direct from you, the service user, or, in some cases, automatically from the device itself.
An example would be a pendant. You can wear it like a necklace and, if you had a fall or other emergency, you press the button to alert us. Our 24-hour a day customer service team, trained by GPs, would then take the appropriate action.
AT not only gives you support and reassurance that, if anything happens, someone is there for you, but it also gives your loved ones peace of mind as well.
AT services are typically run by local councils, so once you’ve been assessed by a local therapist/prescriber, we would deliver, install, monitor, maintain the equipment for you on their behalf, and then collect it and recycle it if it’s no longer needed.
