Telecare is a service for vulnerable people and their carers to enable them to live independently at home. The service consists of sensors and alarms which when triggered, call for help and assistance from the Telecare call centre. The call centre can contact a friend, relative or a specialist response service to attend the home and assist if required.
The range of sensors available provides protection by monitoring for a number of risks such as fires, flooding, carbon monoxide, natural gas, high or low temperatures and also wandering, falling or inactivity.
Such services can some people to maintain independence, increase their safety and confidence and with additional services, enable some clients to move from residential care to back into the community.
