Flagging this up belatedly. On 9 December 2010 Counsel and Care (a UK charity for older people, their families and carers, whose chief executive Stephen Burke has been a strong advocate of free telecare) published a free 43-page PDF Telecare and telehealth: what it is and how to get it. Sponsored by Tunstall but written and produced by Counsel and Care for the general public, it’s a good look at what the technology is and what it can do. Good, that is, apart from the rather odd references to ‘assisted technology’. If it were not for that and for having to answer some survey questions before downloading it, I’d recommend it to visitors to our What is Telecare? page. Find your way to it here.
