The Care Assist pager is a portable device that provides carers with a means to receive instant alerts from a range of telecare sensors.
With a typical range of up to 200m, it is particularly suited to specialist dementia care, intermediate care, learning disability, residential and care home, and respite care facilities. It can provide significant benefits to private individuals and their informal carers who may prefer not to be connected to a 24-hour monitoring centre.
How does it work?
The Care Assist pager can receive alerts from various telecare sensors so that the carer can check and respond to the cared-for person. When the telecare sensor is activated, the Care Assist will vibrate, beep and display clear information on its bright screen to alert the carer to the incident allowing them to take speedy and appropriate action.
Why is it needed?
The Care Assist pager allows onsite carers to be made quickly aware of any incidents allowing them to provide a high level of care whilst maximising their efficiency. It will also help to reduce the impact on informal carers’ lifestyles enabling them to lead more independent lives.
How does the personal alarm service work?
The carer assist pager works in combination with the personal alarm service and helps individuals to live more independently, and have an improved quality of life.
Discrete wireless sensors throughout your home can automatically raise a local, audible alarm, as well as alerting a carer, key holder or the monitoring centre as appropriate.
