On behalf of Cheshire East, Millbrook Healthcare is delighted to provide your Technology Enabled Care Service.
The goal of our service is to enable residents to feel safe and reassured as they continue living the life they have chosen in their own homes. Our trained technicians install the equipment that has been prescribed for you, to support you to remain as safe and independent as possible within your home. They will explain what has been installed, instruct you on how it works and provide you with a product user manual. A range of equipment may be provided including fall’s pendants, epilepsy sensors, a door alarm, key safes or a carers card.
This service is underpinned by the Millbrook monitoring and response centre team, who are available throughout the year to aid the response should your alarm be triggered.
