Helping you to stay in your own home
The Telecare Service is provided by Aragon Housing Association in partnership with Bedford Borough and Central Bedfordshire Councils, Bedfordshire Primary Care Trust, Tunstall Group and North Hertfordshire Careline.
The idea is to help vulnerable older people be cared for in their own homes for longer. The Telecare Service is also known as assistive technology which has many benefits.
The Telecare Service can often delay the move into residential care as well as providing support to people returning from hospital – in some cases it may mean they are allowed to go home earlier after a hospital stay.
