The Assist vision: To enable people to remain safely independent in their own homes for longer through the use of assistive technology and technology enabled care
Trained to respond to a wide variety of emergency calls including push button pendants, memory loss aids, fall alerts, fire alarms, epilepsy monitors and many more, our team of professional operators answer emergency calls 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

“I feel safer knowing they are there should I need them.”
“They were so calm. It really helped me waiting for the ambulance to arrive.”
With family and friends spread far and wide not everybody has three local key holders able to attend in an emergency.
Our mobile response officers provide basic first aid or liaise and give access to the emergency services if and when required.
This service is available for both individuals wanting to remain independent in their own homes and for registered social landlords looking to provide cover when their staff are away from site.
“Our family is pretty spread out and none of us are close enough to get to Dad quickly. He pressed the alarm and didn’t answer so they went straight round, found him on the bathroom floor and stayed with him until the ambulance arrived. Thank you for looking after our Dad.”
