There are pros and cons to telecare and the way it is being implemented, and Guy Dewsbury’s recently revised SMART Thinking telecare FAQ webpage, pins them down in a comprehensive and readable way. It’s quite long, but don’t stop when you get to the ‘What are the key issues that face the telecare designer/installer?’ section that starts about halfway down. Guy’s ‘Breaking the…’ sections that follow are full of gems.
His final section on ‘containment’ versus ‘enablement’ should be compulsory reading for everyone in the field. Read it here.
