Telecare - personal alarms and sensorsTelecare uses alarm systems and sensors to help reassure you and your relatives that you are safe in your home
|How telecare works|

Personal alarms: are sometimes referred to as community alarms and are worn around your neck or on your wrist at all times when you are in your home. By pressing the button on your alarm an alert will be raised with the 24/7 monitoring centre which will then phone a family member, friend, neighbour, nurse or warden (if you live in sheltered housing) when there's something wrong.
Motion sensors: can automatically switch on a bedside light at night when you get out of bed, making a trip or fall less likely.
Other sensors: the range of sensors available is very wide and if you contact the telecare provider Argenti to discuss the issue you are concerned about, a specialist adviser will explain the different ways in which telecare might be able to help.
