Assistive Technology

Once you have a Careline alarm installed there are other pieces of equipment available which can be linked to provide additional reassurance and protection. These include smoke and carbon monoxide detectors which will activate and sound within your home and alert the control centre that a fire or carbon monoxide has been detected. The operator will call the Fire Brigade in an emergency, protecting you and your property.

Falls detector pendants can also be provided at a cost of £4.10 per week. These pendants can detect a fall and will automatically place a call through to our control centre who will provide assistance in the usual way.

Grant funding may be available to cover some of the cost of this equipment if you live in west Norfolk and are in receipt of a qualifying benefit or experience memory loss. Please contact us for more information.

There are other types of assistive technology available from Norfolk County Council
