The CareAssist is a portable telecare alarm that can receive telecare alerts and display not only the type of sensor activated but also either the location of the sensor or the name of the person the sensor has been assigned to. This means that onsite carers can be quickly made aware of any incidents allowing them to provide a high level of care whilst maximising their efficiency.
Telecare sensors are pre-assigned to the CareAssist and may be linked to either a location within a building e.g. communal lounge or to a specific resident e.g. Mrs Smith Flat 1. 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.
With a typical range of up to 200m (line of sight), 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 service.
It provides a very low cost effective telecare solution whilst avoiding the need for a telephone line or monitoring centre service which is not always required when full time care is being provided.
