About me:

For many years I was able to live a normal and independent life until one day I woke up in the back of an ambulance to learn that I’d experienced an epileptic seizure.

From that day on I was issued medication to minimise the risks of recurring seizures however there was no guarantee that they wouldn't happen again.

My mother contacted the local telecare service to enquire about technological solutions that could help me in my day to day life. I was promptly issued with a belt worn fall detector that could automatically alert someone in the event that I had a seizure and fell to the floor.

I'm now able to live independently in my own home without my family or friends having to keep a watch over me at all times. I'd recommend the service to anyone.

My Health Condition:

  • Epilepsy
  • Risk of falls

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.

Smoke Detector

2) Smoke Detector

The smoke detector is linked to my alarm unit by a radio signal and will play a message to remind me to leave the house in the event of a fire.

Belt Worn Fall Detector

3) Belt Worn Fall Detector

My fall detector fits into a pouch and can be worn around the waist. It can automatically detect if I fall and immediately tells the alarm unit to call for help. I don’t know what I’d do without it.
