Dementia affects 850,000 people in the UK. Dementia is one of the biggest challenges facing our society, and our ageing population means it is one that is set to grow, with figures forecast to double in a generation and rise to more than 2 million by 2051.

Dementia is not a single disease, it is an overall term that covers a wide range of specific medical conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease. Dementia is an umbrella term which refers to ongoing decline of brain functioning. This includes loss of memory, language, problem-solving and other thinking abilities that are severe enough to interfere with daily life.

How we can help

People with dementia can be vulnerable even in their own homes. Our products are beneficial for those with dementia, as well as their families and carers. Telecare provides reassurance and support, which help keep you safe in your own home.

If someone with dementia is prone to wandering, our Footprint device uses GPS technology to pinpoint the wearer’s location. This approach can help find someone who has gone purposeful walking.

At Progress Lifeline we can help make living with dementia much safer. Linked to our alarm response centre we have:

  • GPS pendant alarms in case your loved one gets lost or confused when out of the home
  • Property exit sensors if your loved one is prone to purposeful walking
  • Medication reminders/dispensers
  • A range of other sensors that can automatically alert our alarm response centre if, for example, a fire or a flood is detected, and a person needs assistance.

Call us today on 03333 204 999 to discuss how we can help you and your family live well with dementia.
