We are thrilled to share that we are launching a new service known as Right at Home Lite, to support even more people across South Cheshire to continue living independently in the comfort of their own home.
As well as the wide range of services we already provide, including companionship, personal care, medication reminders, meal preparation and light housekeeping, the addition of Alertacall to our offering will give families additional peace of mind that their loves ones are safe in between care calls. It can also act as a stepping-stone for those who are considering homecare.
The service will be especially valuable at this time, when the Coronavirus has restricted so much movement and more people are needing to self-isolate.
Our Right at Home Lite service is being offered in partnership with Alertacall, who are providers of digitally enhanced daily contact that confirms health and safety, detects changing needs and improves customer care. The company already provides services to tens of thousands of older people, and other individuals with higher needs, across the UK.
Customers are given a specially designed device with an OKEachDay button, which customers press once a day, or more often as required. This sends a signal to Alertacall which confirms the customer’s contact and that they are able to receive information and prompts. Customers who choose not to engage digitally will receive a call from a trained adviser from the Alertacall team and the adviser will talk and exchange information with the customer.
Martin Cutbill, Director at Alertacall said: “We are absolutely delighted to be working with Right at Home to launch what is a truly innovative solution in domiciliary care. The Right at Home Lite service will operate 365 days a year and will be a valuable safety net when additional support is wanted outside of the times when in-home care is provided. Furthermore, in these times, the ability to talk to our teams will make a huge difference in reducing the effects of social isolation.”
We are excited to be embracing this technology as we strive to keep our Clients and the local community living comfortably at home for as long as possible. The service will offer excellent value and will cost customers £34/Month for a phone or £39/Month for a tablet.
