Alarm Radio Monitoring
Alarm Radio Monitoring
Wireless nurse call systems from Alarm Radio Monitoring have been developed to meet the requirements of working within healthcare environments. With 25 years experience manufacturing nurse call systems, we have plenty of knowledge and expertise to help design a system tailored for you.

Nurse call points are manufactured using the latest technology for optimum hygiene using Biomaster antimicrobial protection embedded within the plastic outer casing and buttons.  This provides extra protection against the spread of infection coupled with pear push leads being IP67 rated to enable dip sterilisation.

Biomaster antimicrobial technology provides round-the-clock protection in hygiene-critical environments against bacterial build-up from harmful species such MRSA, E.coli and Legionella. The active ingredient in Biomaster is built-in during the manufacturing process and lasts the lifetime of the product.

Call points feature an infra-red sensor enabling remote operation using an infra-red fob.  Alternatively call points can be released from the wall bracket via the locking tab and positioned in the room if required.

There are various types of call points from bed-head units, toilet and bathroom units to door and door-bell monitors.  For the more mobile; neck pendants, fobs and wrist buttons are helpful add-ons to your nurse call system and give people greater freedom.

Assistive technology devices such as epilepsy sensors, movement monitors, chair/bed/floor pressure mats can be plugged into a nurse call point to further enhance the system and help meet the ever changing needs of individuals.

With ARM’s call logging software, managers can view/print/export various management reports such as staff response times, attendance visits, maintenance reports.  The call logging software keeps a record of all events that occur on your nurse call system, providing a full audit trail for future reference/analysis.

If you require an element of Staff Alarm as well as Nurse Call, this can easily be achieved by combining our Staff Personal Alarm units into your system.  The arm Nurse Call and arm Staff Alarm systems use the same infrastructure, so you need only install one system.

Alarm Radio Monitoring’s leasing options make new nurse call and staff alarm systems immediately affordable.

Who we are

Here at apetito, we work hard to produce nutritious, great-tasting meals for care homes across the UK.

It’s how we bring food and people together that makes us different —and can make a real difference to those who may need it most.

We are dedicated experts - for over 60 years, our chefs and nutritionists have taken pride in catering for specific requirements and nutritional needs without compromising on the delight of a delicious meal.

Every care home is different, and we know what it takes to give your residents a delicious and nourishing dining experience. From choosing your menu to training your team on plate presentation, we partner with you to add in the extras that make all the difference.

Why apetito

A better choice…

With a range of over 200 dishes, our recipes cater for diets influenced by illness, culture, religion, ethical choice, or personal preference. Our chefs update our menus frequently to keep things fresh, while also ensuring they’re filled with home comforts such as traditional Sunday roasts and fish Fridays.

Our food is also frozen within an hour of cooking to lock in nutrition, freshness and flavour. This guarantees the nutritional value of the meal when served to your residents – unlike chilled meals, which can deteriorate in nutrition over time.

From our kitchens to yours…

Our chefs, dietitians and nutritionists work together to perfect recipes that your residents will enjoy and benefit from enjoying. We even carry out regular tasting sessions and nutritional checks to make sure of it.

It starts at the source…

We are proud supporters of the British food and farming industry and we’re committed to sourcing suppliers who share our commitment to improving the world we live in.

Hearing Solutions UK
Hearing Solutions UK
At, Hearing Solutions UK, we are dedicated to finding the best hearing aid solution that perfectly suits you.
Misheard conversations with friends, family and work colleagues, as well as having to ask everyone to repeat themselves, our story began when one of our company directors experienced moderate hearing loss and realised just how big of an impact it was having on his life. Whilst it is not fair to criticise a product supplied for free courtesy of the NHS, the lengthy process and average performance of the hearing aid inevitably led to searching for a better alternative. The private supplier market for hearing aid devices, on the other hand, proved to be a minefield full of jargon and technical specification which can only be understood by professionals alone. These are the main reasons why we started to conceptualise an organisation that would not only supply hearing aid products of the highest quality but also an impeccable and unrivalled customer service.
With all these said, we at Hearing Solutions UK understand that hearing loss can be a sensitive subject. What's more, we aim to keep the process of selecting the right option for you as simple and jargon-free as possible as we know that accepting that you may need help with your hearing can be pretty overwhelming. We also acknowledge that all our customers have different needs and requirements so we strive to make your experience as discreet and personal as possible. Catering to these preferences is a top priority here at Hearing Solutions UK.
Flexibility is also another major reason why we are trusted by our countless clients. Instead of tying ourselves with only one manufacturer, selecting the best and latest styles of hearing aids has been part of our mission to ensure that we can offer you the most exciting and new hearing solutions, as soon as they become available.

So if you are looking for a defibrillator, a CPR training dummie or even a First Aid course – we can Help! We also offer professional & expert advice on all of our product range.
Anti- Choking Device
Over the last 6 months we have had a high demand from the care sector for our Anti-Choking device – LifeVac.
LifeVac is new single suction anti choking device. As the LifeVac has a one way patented valve, when applied it only sucks up and does not push air down when pulled therefore LifeVac creates three times more pressure than the abdominal thrust and chest compressions as trained in First Aid.  LifeVac is FDA approved, MHRA approved as a class one medical device, Canadian Health Service approved and CE accredited. Plus an independent study of the LifeVac on a human cadaver has been peer reviewed and published in the American Journal Of Emergency Medicine by Elsevier. The LifeVac dislodged obstruction of the airway 49/50 trials on the first pull.
The device is ideal to be used on the elderly, disabled, children, people with swallowing disorders plus any person where the abdominal thrust and back slaps are not suitable.
Our mission is to get the LifeVac device everywhere we can, as we know, not only will it save a persons life, it can also help take the panic, stress and fear of choking away from venerable people and their carer’s.

“Nourish is responsive, adaptable, instant, consistent, person-centred and surprisingly cost efficient” – Paul Dennis-Andrews, Encompass

Nourish empowers your whole care team. It offers a care management solution that supports and enhances the great work you already do, rather than forcing you to work in a different way.
