what is telecare
What is telecare?

Technology that enables the continuous, automatic and remote monitoring of real time emergencies as well as lifestyle changes over time, in order to manage risks associated with independent living

who is telecare for
Who is telecare for?

Useful for anyone that might be vulnerable:

  • older and disabled people living alone
  • people on their own for long periods during the day
  • people with a history of falls
  • people with an on-going illness that may affect their well-being, e.g. diabetes, heart conditions
  • people with dementia or confusion
  • people recently discharged from hospital concerned about how they will cope
how does telecare work
How does telecare work?
  • Systems tailored to individual need
  • Sensors placed around home
  • Sensors worn by user
  • Link to call centre via Home Hub and phone line
  • Prompts to remind user to do essential task,e.g. take medication, or move away from door (for people who wander)
  • Sensors can monitor:

- the environment - extreme temp, gas, flood, smoke

- the person - movements, inactivity, falls, blood pressure, breathing, heart rhythms

  • Response generated according to individual protocols

  • Falls management scheme for 20 users
  • Supporting people who have fallen or who fear falling
  • Members of Mountbatten Centre ‘Strength and Mobility Group’
  • Already demonstrated motivation to participate in managing their health and well-being
  • Anticipated outcomes of telecare provision - improved confidence, maintenance of ‘fitness gain’ once group finished, reduction in falls
why choose falls
Why choose falls?
  • Hip fracture related to falls costs NHS about £1.7bn per year in England
  • Fear of falling leads to loss of confidence resulting in limitations on daily activities, with consequent increased dependency and disability
  • Falls and their consequences, e.g., a long lie, are a major factor in public health and economic issue (10% acute hospital admission, high morbidity and high mortality)
  • Telecare can make a major contribution to improving confidence and mobility, and management of risk, by assuring user of early response in the event of a fall
  • By the Centre for Health Care Modelling and Informatics, University of Portsmouth
  • Qualitative and quantitative evaluation
  • Collect data on costs and benefits, demonstrate sustainability
  • Investigate contribution of technology to quality of life
  • Inform further development
