“Telecare can significantly improve people’s sense of dignity and quality of life”

According to 24dash.comTunstall Healthcare, a provider of telehealth and telecare solutions, has teamed up with Argenti Telehealthcare Partnership to deliver telecare services to vulnerable adults in Hampshire. Hampshire County Council selected the partnership to deliver telecare services as part of its work to transform Adult Services. The Partnership is led by PA Consulting Tunstall Healthcare, O2, CareCalls, Medvivo and Magna Careline.

The demand for telecare is increasing due to an ageing population with complex needs. The new services aim to reduce unnecessary hospital visits or readmissions.

Councillor Anna McNair Scott, Executive Member for Adult Social Care at Hampshire County Council, said: “People want to stay in a home of their own for as long as possible and Telecare can provide the confidence to enable them to do this. Telecare can significantly improve people’s sense of dignity and quality of life, and complements traditional care. For example, someone who remains in a home of their own, but has help with washing or dressing, may also use Telecare to remind them to take their medication or detect any falls. Telecare can also offer people with a learning disability much greater independence as it enables them to travel safely on their own.  As the average age in the UK rises, due to better health care and nutrition, it will become increasingly important to find more effective ways to care for older people and help them enjoy their lives in the way they choose. Telecare, as part of an overall package of care, is sure to play a more prominent role in future care plans.”
