As we age, we may become more frail. The below technologies provide peace of mind for citizens and individuals and their families that support is available whenever it’s needed, not just when they are receiving care. From wearables to smart plugs, there are plenty of options dependent on needs and preferences.

Their personal alarms are available in a variety of styles, making them suitable for all ages and abilities.

  • are at risk
  • are an adult with long term health needs
  • live alone
  • are returning home from hospital
  • are prone to falls
  • have a disability or restricted mobility
  • are an unpaid carer and would like support when you can’t be at home
