This secure development was originally built by the neighbouring Care Home in 2006. “We were able to pass on significant savings to our residents…the engineers onsite were very professional, everything was planned like a military operation!”.
The Residents Association decided the original careline equipment required updating and due to organisational changes, the scheme also required a new provider for its 24/7 monitoring. After receiving various tenders for both a replacement integrated system and standalone telecare alarms, the Residents Association opted for the latter option, along with a range of additional sensors such as fall detectors and smoke alarms from Telecare24.
“We chose Telecare24 as our new equipment and monitoring provider for a number of reasons,” states David Golding, Chairman of the Residents Association. “Our initial interaction with Telecare24 highlighted the fact that they were very experienced in dealing with Developments such as ours.” He adds, “Telecare24 were able to offer significant savings that we could pass onto our residents with the added benefit of enhancing their safety with the use of fall sensors.”
