There’s a totally new service in Carlisle provided by Medequip Connect which provides comprehensive support packages for the elderly and vulnerable, including an Emergency Response team who will attend at home 24/7 in the event of a fall or other medical emergency.
Medequip Connect, the Technology Enabled Care (TEC) arm of community equipment services specialist Medequip, has announced the appointment of Stephen McKee as Head of Business Development. Bringing added experience to the company’s established management team, Stephen’s new role will combine marketing, bid management and sales as Medequip Connect continues to expand within the fast-developing TEC sector.
Following the award of the contract in July earlier this year, Medequip Connect has now assumed responsibility for the Out of Hours Call Handling & Telecare Alarm Monitoring Service for Freebridge Community Housing, the largest not for profit housing provider in West Norfolk.
We are continuing our partnership with Manage At Home, Medequip’s online retail store, to showcase our telecare range. We have recently added two new products, now available to order online, as part of our 24hr Monitored Telecare Service.
Telecare has always had a certain amount of stigma connected to it in that some service users although they have a Careline in place are very reluctant to use it. The premise of the Careline / Technology Enabled Care Service offered is to keep people independent for longer.
