Vitaline’s refreshing and pioneering approach to the way technology benefits society by supporting independent living is helping the UK lead the field in Telecare.

Each Telecare package is tailored to the needs and wishes of the client and can range from the most basic pendant alarm to the latest wireless technology which includes bed, chair and door sensors plus environmental alerts including gas, flood, smoke or CO2 detectors. We can even fit equipment that will shut off the gas supply if an unlit gas appliance is detected by a gas sensor.

Telecare can be provided free, subject to a social care assessment to those who meet set criteria. It is also available privately. All our charges are fully inclusive with no hidden extras and regardless of how many times the service is used.

Among the benefits Vitaline’s Telecare can provide are:

  • Early detection of emergencies and a fast response to them
  • Early detection of lifestyle changes that may indicate deterioration in health
  • he opportunity to address problems at an early stage before they become acute
  • A sense of security and peace of mind for the client

These benefits, together with Vitaline’s personal mobile response service can prevent or delay admission to hospital or residential care and support Blackpool Council to make the most effective use of available resources.
