The GPS Location Service offers peace of mind and reassurance for individuals who may feel vulnerable when out and about. Through a discreet device carried or worn by the individual we can use satellite technology to pinpoint their location when support or assistance is needed.
A feeling of greater security
Each device is linked to a 24 hour Monitoring Centre offering support and emergency response 365 days a year. Assistance can be requested by pressing the button on the device, alerting the team of fully trained operators. They will establish what support may be required, communicating directly with the individual via the device if necessary.
Peace of mind
Additionally, an optional pre-determined ‘safe zone’ area can be set which will automatically alert the Monitoring Centre if breached. Each client is required to have a nominated responder who will be contacted by the Monitoring Centre when the device is activated. An individual’s location will only be identified at the point of an alert and will never be given out to anyone who has not been authorised to.
The service is available to residents across Surrey who feel vulnerable out in the community, for reasons such as a physical, sensory or learning disability, dementia, trauma or reduced mobility. On joining the service our fully trained team of staff will visit the client and their responder to assess and discuss how to tailor the service to their needs.
The cost of the GPS Location Service is only £27 per month, plus a one off administration fee of £17.50. You will not be tied into a minimum contract.
Referrals can be made on a client’s behalf by relatives, friends or health and social care professionals. To request the service please contact our team on 01276 707659 with any enquiries or complete the form online.
