Wiltshire Medical Services (WMS) and Aster Living are working in partnership, to provide telecare and response services for people across Wiltshire, 24 hours a day, all year round.

Chippenham based WMS provides the GP out of hours service across Wiltshire, managing medical problems that arise, when your GP surgery is closed.

Devizes-based Aster Living employs care and support staff, that provide a wide range of services across West Berkshire, Devon and Cornwall, Dorset, Hampshire, Somerset and Wiltshire.

In Partnership, they provide telecare alarms, for people within their own homes, so that if they need help in a situation, the alarm can be pressed and the team will automatically know who you are, where you live and who to contact in an emergency.

We also have a range of sensors, that help you stay safe at home, by letting the team know if there is a problem, without you having to do anything.

We can provide regular phone contact to support and reassure you in your home.
