Our aim is to improve your independence by providing help or support whenever you need it
The standards we set ourselves are extremely high and these are confirmed by our accreditation to external bodies, including the Telecare Services Association (TSA). We are working towards compliance with both Healthcare Standards Wales and the Social Services and Wellbeing (Wales) Act. All our wellbeing advisors have undertaken a rigorous training programme which was based around the skills our customers wanted, this includes all staff being “Dementia Friends”. We were proud to have been a finalist in The Guardian Public Service Awards 2017 for our Training Strategy. We are currently aiming towards our Information, Advice & Assistance service becoming accredited under the Welsh Government IQAF. (Information & Advice Quality Framework for Wales). Our team of highly committed and trained wellbeing advisors are supported by registered multidisciplinary Health and Social care professionals.
We provide multilingual services to individuals across the UK. We offer a diverse range of services to private individuals, Local Authorities, Universities, the Education sector, private and public sector organisations, commercial businesses and the Government.
Our infrastructure and monitoring platform uses innovative technology to support a range of existing and futuristic solutions to care and support needs, including Telecare, Telehealth and Telemedicine.
We operate a 24/7 bilingual Information, Advice and Assistance service to individuals and organisations that promotes and maintains wellbeing and independence in the home.

Peace of mind at the touch of a button
The Pendant alarm service (sometimes known as Careline or Lifeline) is our most popular personal alarm service and is likely to be the best place to start. Linked to a phone line, the pendant alarm when activated in an emergency, alerts a member of our 24/7 monitoring team. This puts you in contact with one of our trained wellbeing advisors, who will help you by assessing the situation and taking appropriate action, such as contacting a family member, or emergency services. Our wellbeing advisors always stay on the line until help has been arranged.
We provide a monitoring service that operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If a personal alarm or associated sensor is activated, a call is immediately made to our 24-hour Monitoring Centre where it is answered by a trained wellbeing advisor.
When you need a little extra
When you receive our pendant alarm service, you know you’re in safe hands and you can reach us at the press of a button 24/7. You may find that you need additional support such as a sensor to detect smoke, a flood, gas, carbon monoxide or extremes in temperature in your home. These sensors can automatically alert us, as well as yourself. For peace of mind, a sensor can detect if someone gets out of bed or a chair or has left the house when it might not be safe for them to do so alone. This is particularly useful if someone is suffering from memory loss. There are many other useful ‘alerts’ for example, detecting a fall, managing medicines or bogus caller/panic buttons.
Keeping in touch
We also offer daily welfare calls to check on your wellbeing, remind you to take medication or offer peace of mind to carers and family. By pressing the pendant each day, you can advise the monitoring centre that you are okay. If you do not activate a call by an established time, then an Advisor will phone you to check on your wellbeing. If you fail to answer the call, then the Advisor will follow set protocols to arrange help. This service is a discreet way of providing reassurance. There are a variety of different services for you to choose from and all complement our emergency monitoring services.
Being a carer, we appreciate how difficult and demanding this role can be at times and there are ways that we may be able to help. We offer solutions that work both inside and outside the home, using a variety of proven and unobtrusive technology. Our Carer’s card service, for example, provides reassurance that in an emergency we will implement your agreed contingency arrangements so that the person you care for gets the help and support they need when you are unable to.
Our Lifeline alarm is the ultimate communications hub to assist carers. This device can be linked with a pendant that your family member or friend can wear around their neck or wrist, allowing hands-free calls to be made to our 24-hour emergency monitoring centre. Should emergency care be needed, and you are not around, the wearer can feel at ease knowing they still have help at hand.

How we can help you
Technology Enabled Care has the potential to transform the way you control your health and wellbeing allowing you to manage in a way that is right for you.
Our bespoke solutions can help those who need support because of health issues, carers who need help looking after someone or gadgets that can just offer reassurance and peace of mind.
