Are we a caring culture?

Councils are being urged to deliver a culture of care in the ‘Helping people look after themselves’ report. Acticheck can help.

We believe there are many people who are able to cope in their own homes most, if not all, of the time. Often there is a natural network of people – family, friends and neighbours – who would be willing and able to help, if they knew help was needed.  No-one is invincible and knowing that help will be to hand if needed can be a great comfort, helping people live with confidence.

We like to think of these networks as communal care and whilst some people might have a plentiful network to call on others might use ‘co-managed’ care with a professional care provider as their fall back position whilst others might just use the professionals.

Our award winning wristband is designed to give home & garden coverage and be worn 24/7 ; after all you never know when help might be needed.

Our Assure system has the usual SOS button plus other really useful alerts – fall detection, our unique ‘wellness check-ins’, household temperature warnings and system down warnings. We can even let chosen people know when everything is good by giving daily ‘up & active’ emails.

Importantly, it is simple to set up remotely through an online dashboard. This is a boon not only to family members who might want to set it up at home and install it on a weekend visit but also to hospitals and clinics that want to send people home to a safe environment. An extra night in hospital costs £250 – when the person would prefer to be in their own home. The Assure costs less than that for a full year and can be set-up in 10 minutes, given to the person when they are sent home and be plugged in, verified and working within 60 seconds.

This means no more overnight stays in hospital waiting for an installer to visit the vacant home before the patient can return!

If you know something is wrong then please contact an expert immediately.

Your doctor can help with medical problems, or if you are in an emotional crisis you could contact the Samaritans. You can call them free from any phone on 116 123, email jo@samaritans.org or you may have a branch near you that you can visit (see www.samaritans.org/branches).

If the cause of your crisis is feeling overwhelmed by a financial or legal issue then they may suggest a local legal centre or the Citizens Advice Bureau as a good first step to solving your issues.

There is a Spanish phrase that says ‘Where there is a will, there are many ways’. Just because what you have tried so far has not worked does not mean there is nothing else to try and these people are expert at finding the right solution in a crisis, and they care.
