Help and advice

Bed occupancy sensor
This sensor is a pad which when placed under your mattress can detect when you’ve left your bed and start a timer. If you don't get back into your bed within a preset time then your telecare system will trigger an alarm to your help centre. Thus if you go to the toilet or for a quick snack and return to bed your alarm will not be activated but if you fall and do not get back into bed the alarm will be raised.
Many of these bed occupancy sensors can be combined with a radio controlled electric socket to automatically turn on a bedside light when you get out of bed. This helps minimise the risk of you falling over in the dark.

Chair occupancy sensor
This works like the bed occupancy sensor but is placed on a chair or wheelchair. If you leave the chair and do not return after a preset time period an alarm call will be triggered notifying your help centre, encase you have fallen and are lying on the floor.

Both bed and chair sensors can be configured to trigger a pager which could alert a carer or relative that the individual has left their chair or bed.

Passive Infra Red Detector
These are also called 'PIR detectors', 'movement detectors', 'inactivity detectors' and 'activity detectors'. They monitor your movement (but do NOT take pictures or video of you). If they do not sense movement in a room for a prolonged period of time then they can trigger an alarm call to your help centre encase you have fallen over and are lying on the floor in another part of your house or garden.

Pull cords
Pull cords can be positioned in areas where you are unlikely to wear a fall detector or personal alarm button. For example, they can be positioned next to the bed or in the bathroom. If you fall then you can reach and pull the pull cord to trigger an alarm call to your help centre. Ensure the cord is long enough to be reached when lying on the floor and not out of reach behind furniture. View pullcords
