Hi. My mum used telecare until sadly she had to go into a care home. They were great. She had a lifeline, door sensor - she started to go out at night! Carbon monoxide tester and other things. They were really good and people at the call centre were excellent when helping her
A few days ago I posted about a problem mother in law had had. When using the emergency call pendant we hit a recorded message 50% of the time. The engineer said this was an industry wide and well known problem.
Once activated the pendant jammed the line for 2.5 minutes. I got that cut down to 40 seconds but it was not a good experience.
