Sensors, monitors and alarms

For safety in your own home and peace of mind for those who care for you, there are a number of electronic sensors, detectors, monitors, apps and alarms available.

Telecare personal and environment sensors in your home provide 24 hour monitoring and give the support and reassurance you need to allow you to live at home safely. For example through a pendant or other alarm devices connected to a response centre. They will be alerted if you have a fall, or can detect if you have an epileptic seizure or someone wanders in the middle of the night.

If you are assessed as being eligible for support from us there is a range of equipment that can be provided on loan. If you are not eligible or you would like to arrange equipment yourself there are providers in Kent and online

If you only require a sensor, monitor or alarm, you can buy these from private companies and organisations.
