The Carer Equipment Service can help carers to access equipment and assistive technology to help maintain and enhance independence and peace of mind in their caring roles.
Carers Support Carer Equipment Service
Our team is available to help discuss your caring situation and help you choose and access the equipment that is right for you and the person you care for.
NEW Telecare/Technology Enabled Care (TEC) service
We are pleased to report that the new NRS Healthcare TEC Service is now live. This replaces the previous TEC offer provided by Wellbeing on behalf of West Sussex County Council. The 13 Week Free trial has now been discontinued and in future will be able to refer two types of customers:
Longer term need customers
Who are eligible for care and support under the Care Act 2014 and will be able to access TEC to meet their needs using council funding (subject to financial eligibility); and
Short term need customers
Who require TEC to support them to respond to a crisis or some other urgent or short-term requirement (TEC will be free of charge to the customer for a maximum of 6 weeks). For example;
- to support their timely discharge from hospital;
• to avoid a hospital admission; and/or
• where there is evidence that a referral will delay or reduce more costly input.
Private pay customers
Members of the public can also directly arrange a TEC service through NRS Healthcare by visiting NRS Healthcare.
We will have more detail about the equipment available here in due course although you can talk to someone on our Response Line now.
