Assistive Living Team

The Assistive Living Team (ALT) is part of ATEC24 and provides a city-wide service to individuals living across Edinburgh. The purpose of ALT is to offer a pro-active, preventative approach to individuals with less complex needs, who may benefit from the provision of equipment and/or telecare, to enable them to maximise their safety and independence in their own homes.

Community Care Assistants carry out home visits to citizens who may benefit from the provision of core equipment from the Community Equipment Loans Service (CELS), including bathroom, bedroom and mobility aids. The team can also provide information to citizens regarding community alarms and the Telecare service.
