Telecare Made Easy

Categories: Latest News.

The Disabled Living Foundation (DLF) launched a new site with focused advice for the public this week: Telecare Made Easy. (Press release). It has some excellent features including:

  • advice pages and panels
  • a wide range of products
  • supplier information
  • case studies
  • the facility for visitors to comment
  • an extensive glossary
  • a very good ethics section

Most importantly, and uniquely in the telecare world, the site gives you the ability to select similar products and see side-by-side comparisons.

Negatives? Well, I hope it will not be dubbed ‘Tunstall Made Easy’ because of its prevailing presence on the site. Whether the balance changes now depends to a large extent on the efforts of other suppliers to support the DLF’s initiative.

Telecare Made Easy fills a huge gap in telecare information for the public. Like all DLF sites, it will be a continual work in progress and will develop strongly over time. The DLF’s team will welcome constructive feedback to help them do this. My suggestion is that when you first browse the site you scribble notes and comments and pass them on via their Contact Us link which you will find at the bottom of pages.

Telecare Made Easy is a welcome and long-needed development – and a good one. With your feedback it will become a great one.
