The Pembrokeshire community alarm service is an emergency telephone service with special features to suit the visually impaired, hard of hearing and people with mobility and other disabilities. It enables individuals to receive rapid attention in an emergency.
Assistive technology is the overarching definition of telecare and telehealth equipment including community alarms.
Assistive technology is based on the premise that older, disabled or vulnerable people should be able to remain independent for as long as possible should they choose to do so. Telecare systems can support independence and well-being. It enables family, friends, neighbours or carers to respond to a crisis in a timely way.
