The aim is to balance independence with reassurance, and provide tailored support which meets individuals needs, now and in the future.
By providing 24 hour access to assistance, either by manual or automatic activation of sensors, Connected Care makes it possible for people to remain in their own homes and communities for longer. It provides an efficient platform for other services to be delivered according to individual need, minimising the consequences of events such as falls by enabling a rapid response, and reducing admission to hospital and residential care. Mobile solutions can support people at risk of falling or with early dementia to continue to remain active by managing risks away from home.
In retirement housing, technology can offer social inclusion and access control, with options to expand the system to include telecare or telehealth should needs change over time, making homes for life a reality. Technology can enable the effective deployment of staff, by removing the need for ‘just in case’ checks and waking night staff.

Digital technology is an increasing part of everyone’s lives, at home and at work. BT has announced that by 2025 everyone will have moved from analogue to IP Voice telephone services – the UK’s switch to digital is inevitable and imminent.
Digital technology represents a huge opportunity to improve quality of life, increasing the choices available to people to remain active and thrive in their own homes as they age. Join us on the digital journey.
