Care Technology (Hampshire)


Care technology (sometimes referred to as 'telecare') is monitoring and alert equipment that can help you to remain independent in your home and in the community. This equipment provides you, your carers, family and friends with the reassurance that help is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Care technology covers a wide range of equipment, such as alarm systems, motion sensors and GPS location trackers. When an alert is raised, you are connected to a team of trained advisers in a monitoring centre, who will ensure you receive the support you need.

You can purchase your own care technology package from a private provider. Prices vary depending on the packages and products that you require. Hampshire County Council recommends Argenti. Hampshire County Council may fund the provision of care technology equipment following an assessment which shows that you have an eligible need and you meet the criteria for funded care technology.

Examples of care technology packages are: Pendant alarms in the home, and out and about. Falls detection. Smoke Detection packages. Other products available to purchase from Argenti include: voice activated technology, flood detectors, bed/chair occupancy sensors, internal door sensors, medication dispensers, epilepsy monitor range etc.

Who is Care Technology for:
• Anyone whose health and wellbeing you are worried about
• Concerned carers
• Individuals living with a disability or long term condition who want to maximise their independence Individuals living independently in their own home who may want some extra reassurance
• Individuals living independently in their own home who may want some extra reassurance
