A £60,000 project in Northampton is allowing patients with dementia to live at home for an extra six months by providing them with a range of specialist electronic devices.So far,18 people aged between 50 and 96 have used the scheme, with an interim report finding savings ranged from £900 to £24,000 because of reduced admissions to residential and nursing homes.The Safe at Home scheme, run jointly by Northamptonshire Healthcare trust and local councils, has provided equipment such as gas detectors, a fall detector, a bed-leaving alarm and pressure mats to alert carers if patients leave their homes.
