Donating a safety system to a carer

Instead of greeting cards we have decided to provide a personal alarm system with free 24/7 monitoring/maintenance for a year to a carer/service user referred by our local charity Carers Bucks. We've always witnessed Carers Bucks championing telecare and making sure those vulnerable people who come in touch with them receive the most appropriate technologies and support. So a big thanks to them.

Wishing you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year!

From everyone at Care Harmony Solutions

Care Harmony Solutions provides Doreen Mann an elderly personal alarm free of charge for life

Inspired by Sonia Congrave, a waitress at Tomassi's, on the high street, Southend-on-Sea we are providing pensioner Doreen Mann an elderly personal alarm free of charge for life. Noticing the unusual absence of her faithful customer, Sonia became concerned and alerted Essex Police, who dispatched officers to Doreen's house and rescued her after being stuck in her bath for four days. We hope our personal alarm with 24/7 care line will provide Doreen peace of mind as it will enable her to call for assistance at the touch a button now. Both Sonia and Doreen are thrilled about this arrangement. Sonia said: "I was delighted to take the call from Care Harmony Solutions offering Doreen a free for life personal alarm and Doreen is so thrilled as this will make such a dramatic difference to her life, knowing that she will have someone there to help if she needs it. For me, the peace of mind is truly wonderful as I can’t be there with her all the time. Thank you so much for this gesture, which is very much appreciated"

Offering a new stylish longer range pendant alarm
We have decided to offer British designed and made Cair pendant alarm alongside our standard pendant alarms which comes with every personal alarm unit. The reasons for offering this piece of equipment are:
  1. It has a range of 150 metres which is more than double the range of standard pendants and we know this can help a lot of our clients.
  2. It looks like an item of jewellery which can encourage many people to wear their pendants. From experience we know many people are reluctant to wear their pendant because, in their view, it reveals vulnerability.
  3. It is easy to clean and simple to use.
  4. It is very cheap for what it does.

Find out more about the Cair pendant alarm here.

Extending the installation of personal alarm, Telecare products and key safes to Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire and Cambridgeshire
In addition to our nationwide coverage through our Ready-to-Plug-in service (secured postal delivery) we are expanding our physical installation from our base in Buckinghamshire to other parts of the country. This will enable us to provide a person-centred service to our clients. Therefore, we're extending our physical installation service to cover Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire. We're also planning to launch an installation service in Ely, Cambridgeshire in the near future. New installation services cover all aspects of personal alarms and Telecare systems. Our experience shows that the key safe is an important aspect of a care package. Therefore, we'll keep providing and installing key safes as part of our core services.

Note: There have been occasions where we've installed personal alarms, key safes and telecare systems in parts of London and areas that are not within our covered post code areas. These have been done at the request of social care teams, occupational therapists and families to facilitate an early discharge. So please do still call us if your area is not covered by our current installation service. We always go the extra mile to satisfy our clients.

Care Harmony Solutions announces new blog
New telecare devices and systems enter the market regularly. It is fairly difficult for service users, carers, care workers and commissioners to keep up with the pace. The internet, though extremely helpful, can make matters worse. Consumers can be easily misled and providers can unknowingly or knowingly mislead clients. Having received many enquiries from carers about what type of alarms, for example, are most appropriate for their loved ones has given us the idea of developing a blog to share our views and insights in this area.

Last week a family from Prestwood, Buckinghamshire approached us to check and replace an alarm, purchased on the internet, which was creating numerous problems for the alarm wearer (a 92 year old person) and the carers. So the first post on our blog is about the alarms answered by carers compared to those managed by a 24/7 care line.

We appreciate if you also share your views, insight and experiences with us through commenting on the subjects or sending us your ideas which will be considered for publishing as a separate post.
