Peace of mind for you and your family

Assistive devices for your home, to help you stay safe and to keep your loved ones informed,

Home Aware is a service designed to support older people to live in their own homes for longer and give some added peace of mind to loved ones and families when supporting someone to live at home. The majority of us would prefer to live in our own homes for as long as possible, but in later years that can mean getting a little bit of help here and there. The service watches out to see that things are as they should be at home. Devices connected to the internet within the Home Aware Essential solution lookout for these everyday activities such as boiling a kettle, using the microwave, and moving around
the home. 

How Home Aware can help

Home Aware learns what normal looks like for any one person and then looks for any changes which might show that things are not as they should be. Any changes can be shared over the internet with care providers and with family members who are looking out for your wellbeing via an app on their mobile phones. The sensors enhance the care and companionship services that we currently provide. You can feel safe and secure with the comfort of knowing that your loved ones and the Home Instead team will be monitoring and looking for any meaningful changes that suggest help is needed.
