Assistive technology uses sensors and detectors to alert live-in carers that there is a problem, or calls for help if the person lives alone. It means that help can be called for quickly and the event doesn’t escalate into a crisis.
Devices can stand alone to provide alerts and reminders. They can also be linked to Carelink, or a similar 24 hour monitoring centre, to call for help at anytime.
Sensors and devices can be fitted to assist with:
- medication compliance
- sensory impairment
- memory deficit
We provide assistive technology for people who meet certain criteria but it can also be bought privately.
Our equipment and demonstration centre at the Motex Centre in Weston-super-Mare has a wide range of equipment, adaptations and assistive technology for you to try.
