Assistive Technology

24/7 help at the touch of a button

Assistive technology is a term used to describe a range of equipment which can support vulnerable people to live in their own homes safely and independently. In addition to our Careline Telecare system and alarms we also offer other devices to help support you in everyday life.

Motion sensor lights are ideal for illuminating hallways, landings, walkways and bedrooms, helping to reduce the risk of trips and falls within the home. Simple to use the lights plug into an electrical socket providing assistance during the night.

For more complex needs a pager system may be beneficial. The Tunstall Care Assist pager can receive alerts from multiple sensors and notify you if an internal or external door is opened.

Grant funding may be available to cover the cost of equipment depending on eligibility.

Other systems may be available depending on your individual circumstances, please contact us for further information.
