Telecare is electronic equipment, sensors and aids used in a person’s home to support independent living.

Telecare

Telecare equipment is linked to a telephone alarm unit. This unit is what all the sensors attach to.  The unit, once activated, sends a call through to the call centre informing them of a possible emergency.  The call centre will ascertain the problem and then the appropriate response is made.

The pendant

The pendant can be worn around the neck on a cord or on the wrist via a strap.  There is also a minuet watch, which has the help button.  This is a real working waterproof watch.

Smoke Alarm

The smoke alarm is the same as you can buy on the smoke alarmhigh street, but with Telecare, the smoke alarm is connected to the lifeline unit.  As soon as the smoke alarm sensor activates, the lifeline unit makes an emergency call, and the fire brigade are alerted immediately.

Property Exit Sensor

This sensor provides a real time alert that the client has left through the door and not returned.  The sensor can also be used for a door that has been left open so that action can be taken to secure the property.

Medication Dispenser/Reminder

The medication dispenser can automatically provide access to medication over a 28 day period. If the user fails to take the medication within a specified time, an alert is raised to the monitoring centre for action to be taken to ensure the medication programme is maintained.

Falls Sensor

The falls sensor is designed to tell that the client has fallen. It uses motion sensors to detect a fall and callf or help. It also has a manual help button.

Extreme Temperature Sensor

The sensor monitors for excessively high temperatures, such as flame, and for excessively low temperatures, for clients at risk of hypothermia.
