What is Telecare?
Telecare helps to manage personal and environmental risks associated with independent living.
It helps to give reassurance to individuals living alone, by letting them know they have 24/7 support, should they need it.
There are a range of Telecare sensors, that can be installed around the home. The early detection of risks enables individuals to live more independently and safely.
Telecare is most effective when it forms part of a person-centred package of care and support. It can reduce the need for wellbeing visits and additional hours of support where suitable.
Each service user should expect to receive a Lifeline VI+ and iVi intelligent pendant as standard, unless specified otherwise during their Health and Social Care universal assessment.
