Halloween - be aware of who you scare and stay safe
Halloween will look a lot different this year, and we're hoping people of Hertfordshire will play their part and only celebrate Halloween safely, helping to save lives by preventing the spread of the coronavirus.We worry every year that trick or treaters will make those in our care worry when they receive a knock on the door after dark. But this year, although that risk is reduced as people are choosing not to go door, we encourage you to keep in mind there may be vulnerable people living in your community if you're in your costumes taking part in pumpkin window display trails and walks after dark.We know there may be calls to Herts Careline's control room on Halloween night from anxious residents, so do keep us all in mind so safe, low-Covid-risk fun can be enjoyed by those who want to take part.
NEW! Home and Away Service - a pendant alarm and telecare device that works at home and outdoors
Peace of mind wherever you are now comes in 3 options:Eva and GO - the home and away solution. An alarm base unit and pendant which can be used both inside and outside the home.Eva and GO telecare - as above with additional telecare devices and sensors that can be linked to the alarm base unit if the service user has additional risks and needs.GO - a pendant for use outside the home only, incorporating GPS and 3G mobile technology.For each option, when activated, the pendant sends an alert along with your GPS location to Herts Careline's 24/7 control room. The wearer can talk with the call operator over the speakerphone on the device and help will be arranged.So, whether you're at home, in town, out walking or visiting a friend, the GO pendant is with you every step of the way. Combine it with an Eva base unit and it doubles up as a home community alarm too.
