Telecare24 are proud to announce a new scheme in conjunction with the British Red Cross in Wales. Designed to assist patients being discharged from hospital, the pilot scheme aims to reduce the time it takes for a careline alarm can be installed in homes. The scheme is being run in from two British Red Cross offices in Carmarthen and Newport. The service is available to all clients through the following schemes run by the British Red Cross in Wales:
Home from Hospital
Essentially, staff and volunteers assess the care needs of clients, and offer to install a Telecare24 personal alarm on the same day. This ensures patients can return home from hospital safe in the knowledge that help is at hand if they need it.
Practical Aids to Daily Living (PALS)
The Newport office of the British Red Cross has a Telecare24 alarm on display in store so clients can pop along to have a look and see if it would suit their requirements. There are also lots of other Daily Living Aids available to purchase to make everyday tasks that little bit easier. Medical Equipment Loan The loan service provided by British Red Cross Wales presents an opportunity to highlight the benefits of Telecare services to people experiencing a disability or illness. In line with the hospital discharge scheme, the Loan service allows users to experience the benefits and peace of mind of having a Telecare alarm at home free of charge for a four week period after which the unit can be retained or returned.
