Technology that keeps us safe indoors and out

Home Instead continues to lead the way in the use of technology to enhance the lives of their clients and to keep them safe and well – wherever they are !

Both Phyllis and her mother Jean Allen use an innovative, wearable GPS devise which when pressed can allow the Careline staff at Tendring Council see where they are located, talk to them and if required, send help. Jean Allen wears a watch version which also takes her pulse and blood pressure and counts her steps!  “ It suits my active lifestyle but I know that I am at risk of falling when I am gardening and as I live alone, at the weekends it could be a while before anyone notices that I haven’t answered the phone !”  Phyllis wears hers as a pendant which keeps her safe when she goes out to the shops.
