Equipment to support carers and the ones they care for

Assistive technology

Assistive technology and Telecare can make a real difference to people's lives, not only for those using the service to maintain their independence, but also their families and loved ones who appreciate the peace of mind that this equipment can bring.

Carers also feel safe in the knowledge that they will be alerted if there is an emergency. For more information, contact the Cheshire West Community Access Team on 0300 123 7034 or contact our local provider, Welbeing:

Emergency card

If you are a carer, you may worry about what would happen to the person you care for should you find yourself in an emergency situation and unable to fulfil your caring role.

The Carers Emergency Support Service is a partnership between Cheshire West and Chester Council, Cheshire and Warrington Carers Trust and Welbeing.
