One of the benefits of a pro-active borough Council like Bromley is that they are always striving to keep up with the Jones' and modern methods. That modernity extends to technology, and Bromley Council are investing in the latest technologies to ensure adult social care helps people remain as independent as possible.
Assistive Technology in Bromley is the new strategy launching on January 28th 2010, and Bromley Council is inviting interested parties along to the Civic Centre from 1.00pm - 3.00pm to find out more about it. Anyone wanting to come along should contact Louise Alexander on 020 8461 7837.
That same contact can be used for anyone wishing to find out more about trying out a range of assistive technology at the Independent Living Centre, Lewis House in Beckenham from January 25th.
There is a range of Telecare technology - fall detectors, extreme weather sensors, natural gas detectors etc - now in use by Bromley Council, to help vulnerable people during the winter months. The Council is also working closely with other parties to use Telehealth: advanced technology used to monitor long term conditions like asthma and diabetes, in an effort to reduce hospital admissions
