  • Providing service users with more choice and control
  • Delivering more early interventions and preventions
  • Strengthening partnership working between services
  • Co-ordinating the public and private offer

Leeds Community Equipment Service (LCES) is an integrated service delivering all aspects of equipment for health and local authority customers of all ages in Leeds.

 LCES oversees all aspects of relevant staff training, information and advice to actual and potential users of equipment, service development and the storage, delivery, installation, collection and cleaning of community equipment.

Equipment is delivered and installed in homes at the request of a range of people who assess patients' needs, such as occupational therapists, district nurses, physiotherapists and others. The equipment is also delivered to hospitals and other stores to be taken to service users’ homes.

Telecare is a service that can support older and vulnerable people to live safely and independently in their own home through the use of simple sensors. Telecare can monitor you, a family member, or someone you care for 24 hours a day, by raising an alert if the sensor detects any problems.

Sensors are placed around the home on ceilings, doors and walls or may be worn by the service user in the form of a pendant, watch or belt.

Equipment includes:

  • sensors which can detect falls, movement, and bed or chair occupancy
  • epilepsy and enuresis sensors
  • medication reminders and pill dispensers
  • smoke, gas and flood detectors
  • emergency pull cords
  • bogus caller alert

The response centre staff will have information about the person using the service, and will be able to identify which sensor has been activated and how best to respond.
