Get the most out of life with help and support at the press of a button
TrustCall gives you the peace of mind to know that should you or someone you love need it, help is on hand at the press of button.
TrustCall is a 24hr a day, 365 days a year Telecare monitoring and response service which already gives over 4000 people the confidence to live independently in their own homes. From pendant alarms and falls detectors, to GPS monitors, we have a range of personalised solutions to support people in their own home.
Whether someone is at risk of falling, or has an ongoing health condition such as epilepsy or dementia, a simple assessment and is all it takes to get the right support.
Where family and carers are involved we’ll look at the best solution for everyone, which may be to enable people to step back from their role as carers or to be directly involved in responses.
As well as TrustCall, we’ll talk to you about other support we think may help, such as equipment and adaptations to help around the home, or our homecare service - TrustCare. We’ll also talk to you about any funding you may be eligible for such as Personal Care Budgets or Carer’s Allowance.
Whatever your circumstances, we’re here to help. Just call 0300 777 2777 to talk, or email: enquiries.trustcall@traffordhousingtrust .co.uk
How TrustCall works
TrustCall is a Telecare service - this is sometimes called assistive technology.
Pendant alarms (usually worn about the person) or sensors around the home alert our control room when there is a problem. This could be someone pressing their alarm after a fall, a sensor detecting a significant change in temperature or, a smoke alarm activation. It could be that someone with dementia has wandered from their home and may be at risk.
Once an alert is received at our control room, officers assess the situation and arrange the appropriate response. This could be a call to a family member or a named carer, or an immediate visit to the home from our mobile response team to check a person’s wellbeing or to assist them to get up after a fall. It could also be to alert the emergency services. Entry to the home is usually made using keys stored in a Police approved keysafe that we provide.
