Telecare for young woman with MS and free telecare for older people

What a breath of fresh air this Prevention – Telecare Service, Selby item from the Care and Support website is. It concerns the provision of telecare as part of a larger support package to a young woman with multiple sclerosis in Selby, Yorkshire, UK. It reports her point of view and focuses on the way it has changed her life.

And what a contrast it is to this other goodnews story – about the success of the free telecare scheme in Essex – but then, of course, Care and Support is a government site and doesn’t have a manufacturer’s brand to promote. The start of this scheme was reported in Telecare Aware a year ago. [Essex link no longer works]
