Personal alarm provider Taking Care has joined forces with Oysta Technology to help more customers live independently in their own homes.
The move will see Oysta’s Pearl II digital telecare solution become part of the Taking Care portfolio of personal alarm products.
Steve Gates, managing director of Taking Care, said: “Our customers are at the heart of everything we do. Working with Oysta Technology is a key part of our commitment to give older adults a choice in how they access support. We know that Oysta Technology shares our ethos, as can be seen with the Pearl II – its most customer-centric product to-date, designed by a panel of consumers, healthcare workers and commissioners, to deliver a product that is genuinely wanted and needed.
“The functionality of the Oysta Pearl II combined with access to Taking Care’s award winning, 24/7 emergency resolution services, means customers can be confident that they can get help in the event of an accident or fall.”
Part of the AXA Health group of companies, Taking Care is the largest private personal alarm provider in the UK and the exclusive personal alarm provider to Age UK.
A spokesperson for Oysta said: “Working in collaboration with Taking Care was a natural step for Oysta, as both companies share common values. Both working to provide quality care within the home, to enable vulnerable people to live independent lives, we knew that the Pearl II would be the perfect addition to their personal alarm portfolio.
“Providing digital telecare technology supported by our intelligent IntelliCare platform to the mix, now means that people can purchase a powerful telecare solution that will locate and provide assistance 24/7, no matter where the location.”
