Irvine shoppers were able to find out about community alarms that could allow them to live independently.
Council staff were at the Rivergate Mall last week demonstrating some of the equipment available, including Telecare products.
Telecare produces alarms and fall detectors and is aimed at vulnerable people of all ages to offer them extra support in order for them to live at home safely.
The simple system alerts a monitoring station when there is an emergency or incident in the home.
A council information DVD was made available to members of the public who feel that they, a friend or family member could benefit from the services.
North Ayrshire Council Cabinet Member for Health and Social Care, Councillor Anthea Dickson, said: “The information stall was a great way to meet people who could benefit from Telecare equipment, or who might recommend it for a friend or family member.
“We want to help people lead full and independent lives in their own homes.”
