Do you know someone who would benefit from our Community Link service?
What is Community Link?
Community Link is an award-winning service that helps residents across the Horsham District feel safe and independent, by providing them with a variety of technology enabled care products now known as TEC (Technology Enabled Care).
Service adapted due to coronavirus
Throughout the coronavirus crisis the Community Link service is continuing uninterrupted.
Our advisers have adapted their way of working to do initial assessments over the phone and they can still visit homes to install equipment, whilst observing social distancing and adhering to government guidance on PPE.
The products on offer
You may already know of the service’s Lifeline unit and pendant (red button), but did you know the Community Link team can provide over 200 different technology-based products to meet a broad range of customer needs? Some of the popular products they offer are:
A location tracking device which can be carried by anyone including; those living with dementia, those with mobility impairments, walkers or lone workers. The device can summon help to their location.
Falls detection sensor
There are a variety of different technologies that can be used for this, however all have the same goal, to automatically summon help should a fall occur, without the user pressing the button. Advisors can help assess the need for this equipment.
There are several technologies that can be provided, depending on what is most appropriate. The sensor alerts a nominated person that the user is having a seizure.
