Careline and telecare
Most of us want to remain as independent as possible and to stay living in our own homes, even if this is difficult because of health problems or a disability. At the same time we want to know that we are safe, and can quickly call for help in an emergency.
If you are an older person and less mobile, or are over 18 and have a physical or learning disability, there are gadgets available that will allow you to quickly call for help in an emergency, particularly if you live on your own.
For more information read the assistive technology service leaflet (pdf)
