What is Telecare?

The word ‘tele’ means at a distance.  Hence telecare is ‘care at a distance’.  Telecare consists of smart sensors placed around the home linked to a telecare alarm unit and monitored 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by a monitoring and response centre enabling swift action to be taken should an incident occur. Technological advancement over recent years has taken telecare into new territory.  Traditional telecare relied heavily on user intervention in a crisis but the new phase of telecare on offer in today’s market is all about passive prevention. This means that meeting the very specific needs of individual clients a very positive experience helping all types of individuals to meet their desire for independent living through monitoring and reassurance rather than crisis management.
