People with chronic health problems
We can support you to meet the varied challenges that living with chronic health problems can bring.
At Progress Lifeline we aim to make people’s lives easier and safer so that these conditions do not limit quality of life.
We can support people with diseases and conditions which include but are not limited to:
- Cerebral palsy
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Coronary heart disease
A potential package for someone with a chronic health problem could include:
Medication reminder prompts
The medication unit only dispenses medication at set times and lets us know if you have forgotten to take it. They are really helpful for people who have to take medication at different times during the day or if you often forget to take it.
The fall detector tells us when you have fallen and connects you to the control centre automatically even if you are unable to press the button on your pendant or base unit.
Emergency response service
Available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, the service provides an emergency mobile responder to attend your home to assist you and if an ambulance is required and they will stay with you until it arrives.
Alerts for people who are deaf or hard of hearing
We have a range of devices that can be linked to our sensors to give vibrating and visual alerts. We could for example link a smoke alarm to a vibrating pillow and light display.
Our sensors are linked to our 24 hour control centre meaning that support is available round-the-clock. We hope that this gives people the reassurance and confidence to stay living in their own home for longer.
We can provide the service in any home regardless of the size, layout or location of the property – all that is needed is a connected landline telephone.
The cost for our starter package is £3.60 per week. This includes:
- The Progress Lifeline unit
- Personal alarm pendant or wristband
- Complete maintenance and servicing of the equipment
- 24 hour monitoring and regular assessments.
More enhanced packages are available from £5.00 per week and include the starter package plus a choice of sensors from our range.
There is a one-off installation charge of £20 for the service and up to £40 depending on the package you choose.
The service may be available for free or at a reduced cost for those people in receipt of certain benefits.
