Silver Sunday – the national day for celebrating older people
On this Silver Sunday, we're disappointed not to be spending it marking the occasion at our usual events. With social distancing restrictions still in place, Silver Sunday is going to look very different nationwide this year, but of course our control room will still be here as usual supporting those who rely on us 24/7.
Fall Prevention Awareness Week
During Fall Prevention Awareness Week, we'd like to make you aware that Herts Careline uses a fall detector for many people across Hertfordshire who are prone to falls if living alone.Among older people, falls are a serious factor in causing injuries and hospital admissions. Falls can take a long time to recover from due to causing injury and having a knock-on effect to a person's confidence and independence.Herts Careline's fall detector service triggers automatically when it senses a stumble, trip or fall and dials straight through to our 24/7 control room to alert them that the person needs help.
