Thinking about how you use your bathroom

Do you forget to turn the tap off?

If you are known to Adult Social Care your worker will visit your home and have a chat with you about what things matter to you. From the chat, it may be that there is assistive technology that could support you.  If that’s the case, and if you agree, we can refer you to Careline who will be happy to carry out an assessment and determine which assistive technology might be right for you.  

 An example of assistive technology is a flood detector that can be placed on the floor behind a sink. A flood detector picks up flooding by detecting moisture and sends an alert to the Careline team who can then respond accordingly, and also speak to you to check if you need help.

 If you are not known to Adult Social Care, you can self-refer to Careline. Contact Careline on 020 7974 1491 Option 4.
