People with mobility problems
For people with mobility problems, difficulty getting around the house can present a number of practical and safety related issues that can make day-to-day living much more difficult and dangerous.
Our Progress Lifeline sensors are designed to make the lives of people with mobility problems easier and safer, meaning that individuals are able to remain in their own home for longer with the peace of mind that help is always at hand.
The sensors can detect situations that may be dangerous or uncomfortable, alerting our response centre so they can trigger an appropriate response. A potential package to support people with mobility problems might include:
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.
Bed and chair occupancy sensors
If you have been out of your bed or chair for a long time then the occupancy sensor will let us know. They are useful for people who are at risk of falls or easily get disorientated. The sensor can also be connected to a light so that it is switched on and off as you get in and out of bed.
When smoke or fire is detected an alarm will automatically be sounded in the home. Our control centre will also be notified and if necessary the operator will contact the emergency services.
Emergency response and lifting service
Our team of emergency home responders offer a free lifting service to help customers who have suffered a fall in their home or garden. They are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and are fully trained in moving and handling techniques and use specialist portable equipment to help customers back to their feet.
The sensors can be linked to our 24 hour response centre or a nominated person. If a problem occurs, this triggers the alarm to our response centre, a relative or key holder. Some of our sensors even remotely control appliances and can switch off gas and taps if they detect that something is wrong; preventing a dangerous situation.
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.
