Telecare uses a range of sensors, matched to your individual needs to assist you to live at home, if you are vulnerable and need support. The sensors can be linked to a lifeline (a kind of telephone) that is used to summon help if required.
Using Telecare can improve and maintain wellbeing; self-esteem; independence; and autonomy, enabling you to live safely and securely at home. It is used to support you and your family when living with any care or health issues you may have.
