‘I’m truly delighted with my new Tynetec Reach alarm. It doesn’t look out of place in my modern home and provides total peace of mind should I need assistance at the press of a button’

In memory of Catherine Dowsett 9/6/66 – 19/5/17.

How to live independently for longer in your own home…

More than 90% of people say they would like to remain independent in their own home for as long as they possibly can. This can often be hindered by certain forms of disability or by the onset of a long term condition.

What is telecare and how can it help me?
Telecare is a service that helps to support and enhance the opportunity for people to continue to live in their own home and/or maintain an independent lifestyle with the appropriate level of carer support. For today’s telecare users, they can be assured of total peace of mind, knowing that help is always available, 24hrs a day, 7 days a week.

An at home alarm unit (such as the Tynetec Reach) is plugged into a telephone line and the user is provided with a personal pendant (such as the Tynetec Touch). Once pressed the call is automatically forwarded to a monitoring centre, family member or friend who can then assess the situation and provide the necessary care and support.

Telecare is customisable to most individual’s situations by the simple addition of telecare peripherals such as a fall detector, flood sensor or smoke alarm. Here are just a few examples of some groups of people who have benefited from the implementation of such telecare packages:

  • Those who are vulnerable or at risk
  • Those with disabilities
  • Those with learning difficulties
  • Those who live alone
  • Those with sensory impairment
  • Those with limited mobility
  • Those who are frail
  • Those who are at risk of falling
  • Those who can’t get to a telephone if they need assistance

Tynetec supplies telecare equipment to hundreds of service organisations across the UK who will be more than willing to deal with your requests and determine the most suitable package for you.

Our product selector covers a wide variety of devices available to support and aid independent living. If you would like to find out where your nearest Tynetec telecare provider is then why not contact us for further details.
