How telecare helps full-time carers

Telecare can give you and the person you care for independence and peace of mind.

Here are some practical ways telecare helps full-time carers.

  • 2-way intercom systems can let you speak to the person you care for, even when they're in a different room.
  • Pagers will notify you if a telecare sensor is activated, which means you can safely go out while the person you care for stays indoors.
  • If you’re worried the person you care for could fall in the night, bed sensors will alert you if they get out of bed and don’t return within a set period of time.
