Telecare

Telecare equipment is a range of sensors and detectors such as:

  • Intellilink alarm system
  • Flood detector
  • Smoke detector
  • Bogus caller / panic button

Telecare equipment can be linked to the 24 hour Care Connect (Galw Gofal) monitoring  service or through to a mobile phone or carer alert system.  Whatever your situation, help can be summoned.

What will it Cost?
The Telecare equipment is available following an assessment of need to anyone who lives in Flintshire and feels it may make a difference to their lives.

There is a one off payment of £25 + VAT for the installation.

If you want your Telecare equipment linked to  the Care Connect monitoring centre there will be a monitoring charge of £2.20 + VAT per week.

Social Services focuses on early intervention, aiming to maintain independence.  Reablement, Telecare and aids and adaptations are examples of early intervention services that help prevent people from becoming unnecessarily dependent upon others and requiring more intensive support.
