What is Alfi Telehealth?
When you’ve got a long-term health condition, being on your own at home can be a worry. It’s easy to get anxious about things that may not be significant. But without a doctor or nurse on hand, how can you be sure that your condition is under control?
That’s where Alfi comes in.
Alfi Telehealth is an easy-to-use service that helps you monitor and understand your own health better. The service is delivered from within Cornwall by a team of friendly, experienced health professionals.
Alfi gives you the right equipment to take key health readings yourself, which takes just a few minutes a day. Using your normal phone line, these readings are automatically sent to a health professional – usually your key worker (Community Matron or Specialist Nurse). This means that they can quickly spot any change in your condition and follow up on this if necessary.
The best thing is that there’s expert help at the other end of the line if and when you need it. So you have the confidence to get on and enjoy your life!
