Cambridgeshire Community Services now provide 'Telehealth
monitoring' for chronic long-term conditions. This means
that they are able to monitor patients' vital signs from afar
which will hopefully lead to greater self-management and less
hospital admissions providing the most intensive care in the least
intensive setting - the patient's own home.
How to get in touch
Cambridgeshire Community Services can be contacted
on 01223 883756 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and
will deal with your referral as well as offering additional
support. You can visit their website below.
There are various community alarm services in Cambridgeshire. A
community alarm is a pendant alarm in your home which, when
pressed, contacts a response centre to notify the service that you
need help. A community alarm service can contact the emergency
services, and arrange for a GP, district nurse, next of kin, or
named key holder to visit or help you.
Help is available at the press of a button whenever you need it
24 hours a day, every day of the year, which will help you remain
living independently in your own home.
Community alarms are a valuable source of help for people of any
age. Many people can benefit from the service, including people
with long-term health needs, disabilities, restricted
mobility, who live alone or who have special needs of any kind.
Community alarm services are provided by or on behalf of local
councils. To find out more contact your nearest service
