Clear, practical advice on daily living equipment
These systems are designed to automatically check your well being on a regular basis. Some rely on you pressing a button once or twice a day. If you do not press the button a call centre will ring you to check you are ok.
Alternatively some of these devices can log your daily activities in your home and provide a chart of your activity via the internet. Small, wireless sensors are triggered as you move around your home. A carer or relative can therefore see if you have not gone into your kitchen all day, or have gone out and not returned. If they have any concerns after viewing this data they can ring you or visit you to check you are ok or offer assistance.
