Independent living with 24/7 support
Safe at Home provides technology and safety equipment to help you stay safe and living independently in your own home
Getting older, living with a long-term condition or recovering from an illness can make it harder to cope on your own. Safe at Home offers peace of mind by making sure that help is always at home when needed, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Safe at Home offers a range of technologies – called telecare and home safety equipment – that helps people of all ages.
Telecare works by linking you to a monitoring centre if you need support. Some products let you sound the alarm yourself, while some products will call for help automatically if you are unable to do it yourself.
There are lots of options – from personal or emergency alarms you can wear as you go about your day to equipment to remind you to do certain tasks – so it’s easy to find a set of products that work for you. We recognise that everyone’s needs are different, and that your circumstances can change over time – so our friendly team is on hand to offer advice when you need us.
Safe at Home is run by Portsmouth City Council. We’ve been offering technologies to help people live safely at home for over 10 years, and our teams are committed to helping people live full and independent lives.
As well as being experts at what we do, the income we make is invested straight back into local services – meaning that we can help more people in Portsmouth to live well at home.
Our monitoring service is a member of the TEC Services Association who regulate the industry.
We only charge a weekly rental fee, and you only need to hire products as long as you need them.
Our monitoring centre is open 24/7. Friendly operators are only a call away – you’re never alone.
We pride ourselves on the fact that our service is affordable – pick the level of support you need.
