What is Telecare?

Telecare is the traditional term used to describe technology that is available that could help you live independently and stay in control of your health and wellbeing.

Telecare detects when there's a problem and sends alerts to a call centre which then organises help for you.

For example, the alert might get sent if you left the gas on by accident, or a personal alarm would allow you to call for help if you had a fall.

The call centre can contact a friend, relative or the Telecare response service, who can then come to your home and assist you if required.
