Each week there are stories of cost strains facing the NHS and health providers due to the aging population and budget cuts, but a company in West Yorkshire is providing a simple service to overcome this burden.
Be Safe Key Safes, which is located in Leeds, provides a service to vulnerable members of society by simply fitting a lockable key safe on the exterior of homes to ensure routine and emergency care can be administered without restrictions.
Recommended through a network of care workers, and police the company allows a means of access to homes safely and efficiently. Paul Wilton, owner of the company, commented: “My background is in the police force and I’ve also worked in care and security so I have a strong understanding of the needs of those who I come into contact with each day.
“Through recommendations I visit homes to fit key safes to those who are now unable to take care of themselves and I mainly work with elderly or immobile people.”
The company mainly supplies The Key Safe Company’s leading Supra C500, which is recommended by the police and has passed vigorous tests. Trusted by two million UK householders, the leading product the Supra C500 key safe is used by the majority of local authorities, is accredited by ‘Secured by Design’ and is tested to the same security standards as a domestic front door.
