Careline wins new contract to support over 500 residents across East Herts
Hertfordshire Careline’s Control Centre will now provide support and reassurance to the residents of Network Homes Housing Association, living in Hertford, Ware and surrounding areas.
Cllr Bernard Lovewell, North Hertfordshire District Council’s (NHDC) Executive Member for Housing and Environmental Health, said: "We are delighted that Network Homes selected Herts Careline to support the needs of their residents. More and more housing associations and establishments are choosing us as we have a proven reputation for providing a valuable service'.
Now in its 35th year of service, Herts Careline currently provides support for around 20,000 people across Hertfordshire and surrounding areas and takes a staggering 1,000 calls a day - at least one third of these are life critical emergencies.
Assistive technology, such as community alarms and telecare services, can provide much needed reassurance for users and their friends, families, and carers, as they know help is on hand at the press of a button, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
