The Home Safeguard service is run by East Devon District Council. It allows users to live independently, safe in the knowledge that help will reach them quickly if needed – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The telecare alarm service uses technology to enable older people, those living with long-term conditions or anyone else who may be vulnerable because of their specific needs, such as younger people with learning disabilities, live independently at home.
The other benefits of Home Safeguard include:
- peace of mind that you’re safe in your own home
- greater freedom to get on with day-to-day life
- less anxiety for family and carers
- less risk of unplanned admission to hospital
Each year we produce an annual report which tells you about how the service has performed over the past year.
