About Assistive Technology
Assistive technology is equipment that can help you remain safe and build your confidence in living at home safely. Relatives and carers are also reassured, safe in the knowledge that should an incident occur, they will know about it.
The equipment available can help detect falls or inactivity. Sensors placed in the home and/or on your person alert trained operators at a 24-hour call centre when help is needed. Operators can talk to clients using a two way speech function and will stay on the line until help arrives. Some devices can also help monitor certain health conditions and reduce the need for hospital admission.
There is a wide range of equipment available and the professional involved in your care can help identify what would best help you. Assistive technology can seldom replace care and assistance from people but it can enable existing care and support to respond more effectively.
