People with epilepsy
Living with epilepsy can be dangerous for the person who it affects and an area of concern for that person's friends and family.
It is important that proper plans and support networks are put in place so that in the eventuality of a seizure the emergency services are alerted and arrive as quickly as possible.
We can provide tailored packages so that the fear of having a seizure does not stop you enjoying living independently in your own home.
A potential package for people with epilepsy might include:
Our epilepsy sensors are used to detect seizures whilst you are in bed. The epilepsy sensor is placed under your bed sheets and monitors your vital signs, sending an alarm signal to a nominated person and to the control centre when a seizure is detected. We can then make sure that the emergency services arrive as quickly as possible.
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 key access
A KeySafe provides a quick and easy way for family, care workers and the emergency services to gain access to your home without delay. This could potentially be a lifesaving tool if you cannot get to the door.
The 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.
