Care Technology

Care Technology (CT, and sometimes referred to as ‘telecare’) is monitoring and alert equipment that can help you to remain independent in your home and in the community.

Monitoring equipment provides you, your carers, family and friends with the reassurance that help is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Care Technology covers a wide range of equipment, such as alarm systems, medication dispensers and GPS location trackers. 

Who is Care Technology for?

Our service is designed to offer reassurance and support to anyone, but is of particular value for those who are more vulnerable due to their health or social circumstances. Check with your social worker or visit one of links below for further options.


The Care Technology Service is non-chargeable for all adults who meet the eligibility criteria.

How does Care Technology work?

Your equipment is connected to a monitoring centre via a mobile network or telephone system. You do not need a phone line installed at home in order to be supported.

Mains powered equipment have a battery backup, so that help is available in the event of a power cut.
