Home Safety Service
Technology can play an integral part in:
- Supporting health and wellbeing outcomes for individuals in their home or a community setting,
- Providing a 24 hour telephone link where a keyholder or emergency services can be contacted,
- Helping manage the risks associated with independent living.
Technology refers to a broad range of devices designed to keep someone safe at home or summon assistance in an emergency situation. Services are mainly used by older people or people with disabilities but can also support people with significant health problems.
