Herts Careline launches a new care watch service

Just in time for Christmas, Herts Careline has launched a new service – the Vivago Care Watch system. This is a smart watch which can monitor someone's health and wellbeing so the Herts Careline control room can aim to alert both the wearer and the family to any changes or worries with certain aspects of their health before they become an issue. It also has an emergency alarm button to summon our help if needed.

Festive tree decoration for new Herts Careline customers

We all love a Christmas tree. Whether nostalgic, on-trend, multi-coloured, traditional, tall or short – putting the tree up is one of the first customs of the festive season. And what could be nicer to adorn such a feature than your very own Herts Careline special bauble.So, this year, anyone joining the Herts Careline service in December will be presented with a festive bauble to hand on their tree, by our very own technicians when they install your equipment. Then, as well as enjoying the peace of mind and reassurance that having the Herts Careline community alarm service will bring you, you we'll also be 'present' on your tree! The baubles are made of recycled plastics, produced in the UK so we're being mindful of our plant. And they can be brought out year after year or gifted to family if you prefer.

A visit from Early Intervention Team (EIV) West

Last week, we were fortunate to have a visit from members of the Early Intervention Team (EIV) West. The EIV can provide an urgent response to people in the community for certain situations, such as when they have fallen, have a minor injury or ailments amongst many other concerns. The fully qualified paramedics and crew provide medical assessments as well as looking at the patient and carer functions within the home environment to see whether the patient can remain at home with community resources and assistive equipment. If the patient does require a visit to hospital, an emergency ambulance will be despatched to take them.
