What to expect
The Technology Enabled Care Services (TECS) team can help you to consider how technology could help support your life or that of a loved one. There are many types of equipment available that can help people to stay independent, and increase their confidence both inside and outside the home. The team are able to loan a range of equipment such as medication reminders, falls detectors, alarms and sensors.
For more information on the support that the TECS team can provide, contact 01480 378160 or [email protected]. The team can complete an assessment of your needs, provide advice and loan equipment free of charge. Their assessment is based on need, there is no financial assessment or age criteria.
