Telecare services will let people know if you have an accident or problem in your home. Croydon Council's telecare service is called Carelineplus. We offer it to a wide range of people, such as:
- older people
- disabled people
- people who are at risk of falls or injuries at home
Types of telecare equipment
We offer different kinds of equipment depending on your needs, and will tailor them to suit you.
Our basic telecare package is a unit with a button that can be worn as a pendant or on a wrist strap. Pressing the button will call the response centre and you can to speak to them through the unit.
If you need a little more support at home or you're unable to press a button, we have a range of telecare equipment that may help.
Our equipment is designed to prompt and assist you with your everyday activities, and will alert us when you need help. Equipment includes:
- fall sensors
- wandering systems
- GPS devices
- bed, chair, and floor sensors
