Many think that our Community Link services are mainly intended for elderly residents, but our range of technology-based products can also help people of all ages feel safer safer if they are out and about on their own, or are lone workers.
These products can be ideal for joggers, those walking on their own in remote locations, children walking to and from school and those travelling at night, regardless of their age.
Chiptech GO is a new wearable device benefitting from the latest cellular and GPS technologies. If you are out on your own for example, and you feel you need to activate the device, it would send an alert along with your exact GPS location to our monitoring centre where our advisers can find you help. Chiptech GO encourages you to have more independence in your day-to-day activities, if you are out and about, at home or at work, especially if you are a lone worker.
You can be confident in knowing that help is at your fingertips.
Our Footprint device is a GPS tracker with an SOS button and two-way communication. It pinpoints the location of the wearer and provides two-way hands free conversation through the built-in speaker. The device can be linked into family members or our monitoring centre.
The Footprint device enables independence whilst providing reassurance and safety.
A person-centred service
Using a person-centred approach, our advisers will discuss what technology and / or partner agency referrals would be best suited to support safety and independence.
We take great pride in the relationships we build with our service users and strive to maintain a high level of service delivery and continued support.
The Community Link service is regulated and audited by the TEC Services Association using a robust “Quality Standards Framework”.
Service adapted due to coronavirus
Throughout the pandemic our Community Link service has continued 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.
