Dorset Council has signed a five-year contract with the Argenti Care Technology Partnership (Argenti) to deliver innovative care technology services to residents.

Care technology to support people living with epilepsy has already been introduced, enabling one person who works for the NHS to remain employed.

Argenti has been working with a number of councils since 2013.

The contract in Dorset aims to bring together the best of the private and public sector to achieve better outcomes for people and will support the increasing joint working of health and social care across the Dorset Council area.

Cllr Laura Millar, Portfolio holder for adult social care and health at Dorset Council said, “Care technology has been a hugely important part of the council’s work for some time now. The types of devices available are incredibly helpful not just for the people using them, but for their families and loved ones too. It means peace of mind that the individual is in safe hands.

“We really do want people to be able to stay safe and independent in their own homes for as long as possible as we truly believe this gives people the best outcomes and sense of security.”
