What is telecare? This video gives a brief introduction to the most basic type to telecare system which is a pendant alarm/medical alarm bracelet. It will help you understand how telecare works if you new to telecare or thinking about buying an emergency alarm for an elderly relative.
How does telecare work? If you need help using telecare you simply press a button on your pendant alarm and a call is placed to a 24/7 monitoring centre. Other telecare devices are available that connect to the same two-way speech unit. Many telecare devices can trigger an alert automatically (for example a bed exit alarm which sends an alert if you fall out of bed). Visit our website Telecare.ie for further details.
