Dear Grant

We are so grateful to you for giving your time today to come to Devon for our Advanced Equipment Training ‘Technology for Independence and Safety’ session.

We are finding these sessions are a really useful format for the experienced staff who are working in the community and the feedback from them is 100% positive. The therapy and nursing staff appreciate getting ‘hands on’ with the equipment and having the opportunity to meet you, talk to you about your products and make contact with you for future assessments or staff training.

We hope that you found the morning worthwhile and that we see you again in Devon soon.

Many thanks,

Celia Avati on behalf of The OT Team at the ILC

Just a note to say thank you very much for the session today. We had colleagues there from Learning disabilities, community therapy services, hospital teams and county councils. The content was really well pitched, well presented and interesting. I think people would be very interested in an epilepsy specific session.

Thank you again it was much appreciated.

Thanks, Victoria.

Assistive Technology – Don’t be afraid of it – LEARN ABOUT IT

Assistive technology is available for people with dementia or other conditions that affect memory. Installing specialist equipment and facilities can go a long way towards helping someone with dementia to continue living at home safely.

AssistiveTechnology can give peace of mind to the person with dementia and their relatives, by confirming that they are safe at home. For example, Assistive Technology can help reassure you  from a distance – that the person you care for has got out of bed (through a bed pressure sensor) but hasn’t left the house (front door sensor).

Assistive Technology is not as expensive as you may think. For less than £120.00 you can buy a bed pressure sensor and a front door sensor that connect through home broadband and send alarms and warnings directly to your Smartphone – anywhere in the world. See Wi-Fi Care Sensors

iHelp can make and receive telephone calls at the press of a single button making it real easy for a confused person to use a mobile telephone. iHelp also features a talking medication reminder, which is set remotely by a carers mobile phone or via the free Android or iOS APP.
