About me:

I have been suffering with ill health for over 15 years now and one key area that I struggle with is my medication. If it wasn't for my telecare products, my wife would have to give up work to care for me.

I tend to forget things quite frequently so with my pill dispenser, it manages my medication requirements for me.

My wife fills the device once a week and after that the unit beeps to tell me when to take my next dose.

My Health Condition:

  • Ill health
  • Forgetfulness

Reach Alarm Unit

1) Reach Alarm Unit

The alarm unit plugs into the telephone line and automatically dials the response service if I need help. It has a built in microphone and speaker and receives radio signals from my other sensors.

Personal Pendant

2) Personal Pendant

I wear my pendant at all times in case I need to call for assistance. It's easy to press and what's even better is that it's totally waterproof so I can take it into the bathroom too

Pill Dispenser

3) Pill Dispenser

The pill dispenser is a really clever device that is pre-loaded with my medication. It beeps
when it's time to take it and if I miss a dose, it alerts the monitoring centre who can check to make sure I'm ok.
