Hull City Council’s Telecare Team was established to improve the safety and health of Hull’s residents, particularly those who are older, have dementia, are carers or who have been recently discharged from hospital. A wide range of telecare solutions are available, including medication dispensers. The dispenser can be filled by a family member or pharmacist and will emit an audible beep when it’s time for the user to take their medicine. If the dispenser doesn’t sense that tablets have been removed it can be programmed to raise an alert on a family member’s mobile, or in some cases call the Kingston Care control centre.
