Portable telecare alarm.

Easy to use, portable device with instant carer alert

The CareAssist is a portable telecare alarm. It can receive telecare alerts and display not only the type of sensor activated, but also the location of the sensor and/or the name of the person the sensor is assigned to.

Enables a high quality, non-intrusive care provision

The instant notification of incidents enables carers to provide a greater level of care while maximising their efficiency. It will also help to reduce the impact on informal carers’ lifestyles.


A cost-effective telecare solution

CareAssist provides carers working or living on site with a means to receive instant alerts from Tunstall’s range of telecare sensors. This avoids the need for a telephone line or monitoring centre service, which is often not required when full time (24-hour) care is being provided.

With a radio range of up to 200 metres (line of sight), it is particularly suited to small, specialist dementia care, intermediate care, learning disability, residential and care home, and respite care facilities.

It can also provide significant benefits to private individuals and their informal carers who may prefer not to be connected to a 24-hour monitoring centre service.

CareAssist will vibrate, beep and light up to alert the carer.

  • Compatible with Tunstall telecare range supporting up to 86 telecare sensors.
  • Easy to use with a clear, luminous 2.4” OLED display.
  • Fully portable pocket-sized design and battery operated.
  • Multiple carer alert modes including audible alerts, screen message and vibration mode.

CareAssist is portable, efficient and personal.

How does it work?

Telecare sensors are pre-assigned to the CareAssist and allocated to either a location within a building or to a specific resident. When the telecare sensor is activated, the CareAssist will vibrate, beep and light up to alert the carer to the incident. They can view which sensor activated the alarm, which room/resident it is allocated to and the time and date of the alarm, enabling them to take speedy and appropriate action.

Designed to support local carers, delivering high quality, non-intrusive care.
