Spire Homes Lifeline & Assistive Technology Service enables individuals to keep their independence and gives reassurance that help is at hand 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Anyone can apply for this service – you do not have to be a Spire Homes tenant, elderly, disabled or living on your own to apply.
A Lifeline device connects to a telephone line and comes with a pendant that can be worn around the neck or wrist. Pressing the red button on the pendant will automatically alert our 24 hour monitoring centre who will arrange help by contacting a family member, friend or the emergency services. The pendant works around the home and garden.
We can also supply a wide range of additional sensors and equipment such as fall detectors, smoke detectors and medication dispensers to help people remain safe and independent whilst at home and out and about. If you're unsure what equipment might help, we can visit you at home for free to discuss which equipment would best meet your needs.

Who is it for?
Assistive technology is for people who due to their health or circumstances, need a little bit more support to carry out everyday tasks or who may be more likely to have an accident and need help.
