LPC - Attention Pharmacy Team!
Attention Pharmacy Team!We were delighted to meet so many Pharmacists at the Hertfordshire Local Pharmaceutical Committee (LPC) Annual General Meeting last night. We spoke to many pharmacists who were interested in how the Herts Careline service can support vulnerable people in the community. Pharmacists regularly see older and vulnerable people in the community – often they are the first port of call for a person. We've put together a useful flyer for Pharmacists to display on their staff notice board – you can download it from our website or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll post you some.
Independent Living: Community alarms can help
Have you seen our latest feature in The Comet? In the article we outline the ways community alarms and telecare can make life easier and help older people stay independent at home for longer. It also highlights how medical technology can ease the strain for you and your loved ones.
What is assistive technology?
Assisitve technology, or telecare, includes sensors and detectors such as smoke alarms, fall detectors, flood detectors, door sensors, bed mats, complex needs smart sensors that all trigger automatically if they sense a risk or issue.The sensors and detectors are to a 24/7 Hertfordshire-based Control Room that will answer an alert for help and will arrange appropriate medical support very quickly.
What is a key safe?
A key safe is a secure metal box bolted to the outside of your home which houses a spare key. Herts Careline can supply and install this secure metal box to the outside of your home for free, which will contain an additional front door key to your property.
