Telecare

Providing a range of equipment allowing people remain safe at home

What does it do?

Telecare is intended for use by disabled or vulnerable people of all ages, as well as those with long term conditions.

Telecare can work in one of two ways: Linked Equipment which can generate an alert when there is a problem and help is required and Stand Alone Equipment such as easy to read clocks and calendars which can help with every day tasks.

The Telecare Service is for people who would like to feel safer, more protected and independent in their own home.

The installation of Telecare, both linked and stand alone, has proved to make a difference to people's lives, not only for those using the service but for their families who feel less anxious, especially in cases where their loved one may have a condition that prevents them from understanding the equipment themselves.

Who it is for?

To enable older people and others to remain living independently in their own homes for as long as possible.
