Introducing Clever Contact

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!

 

Endorsed by Dame Esther Rantzen

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.”

how does it work?

  • You will be sent a special phone which works on your landline. You press our OKEachDay button once or twice a day in your own time. It’s free to press, only takes a second and you can then get on with your day.
  • Otherwise you will receive a friendly call from us at the times you have chosen or soon after to ask how you are, for example at 9am, or 8am and 10pm.
  • To protect your independence you may also get an automated call a few minutes before you chosen time as a reminder to press the OKEachDay button.
  • If after several attempts we can’t establish contact with you, we will phone your nominated friends and family members simply to let them know.
  • You can call us for free 365 days a year – to talk, let us know you need a holiday from the service, change any preferences or to set up a wake up call or reminder.

Daily contact vs pendant alarm systems

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.

Did you know…

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.
