Telecare is the term for offering remote care of elderly and physically less able people, providing the care and reassurance needed to allow them to remain living in their own homes. The use of sensors may be part of a package which can provide support for people with illnesses such as dementia, or people at risk of falling.

Feasibility Study: Telecare in Scotland Analogue to Digital Transition

The Scottish Government, via The Scottish Centre for Telehealth and Telecare, has commissioned FarrPoint to undertake a feasibility study to investigate the transition of Telecare within Scotland from analogue to digital technology. This is a constituent part of a wider Technology Enabled Care Programme aligned with the National Telehealth & Telecare Delivery Plan aiming to enable greater choice and control in healthcare and wellbeing services for an additional 300,000 people by March 2016, enabling more citizens to remain at home and in their communities.

European network operators can expect to experience a significant demand from customers for ICT services to support the care of vulnerable people while they engage in the activities of everyday life. Supported independence through the delivery of care services through public and private networks will give vulnerable customers greater access to independent life within the wider community and reduce the need for institutional care.
