Clever Contact helps individuals stay independent - without wearing a device. Feel safer at home with daily contact which fits in with your lifestyle.
Do you live on your own? Do you have family who worry about you? Perhaps you have just come out of hospital? Perhaps you are unwell and would like some extra support? If so, you are not alone. Clever Contact was developed to help people just like you feel safe and stay independent.
Clever Contact is the only service which makes sure daily contact is maintained with you 365 days a year. You receive a phone with our OKEachDay button that you simply press to make contact with us and get on with your day. If we can’t establish contact, you’ll get a call from our friendly team at a time chosen by you. You can also set up wake up calls and reminders to attend hospital appointments or take medication – even that it’s a family members birthday!
The campaigner, journalist and charity founder Dame Esther Rantzen has visited our offices, spent time with our team and thinks our service is great.
“A really great service for older people who, like me, value their independence but realise that you do have to be careful when you live on your own.”

Not everyone likes wearing a pendant alarm – and many forget to wear them.
Many telecare services also work on the basis that ‘no news, is good news’. Sometimes it just isn’t.
Our service does not require anything to be worn and can do so much more, such as medication or appointment reminders, wake up calls and, if you are a resident with a housing provider, you will also receive important information from housing staff.
It is thought that an overwhelming majority of people who have a pendant alarm do not wear them every day and only a relatively small number of people actually use them in a real emergency, making their benefits minimal for many people.
