Testimonial to telecare (UK)

“Up to 10 years ago, Michael [Burkhill] was enjoying life as regional manager for a brick company in Wakefield. Driving home from Leeds one evening he had a heart attack. Five years later, in 2007, his health further deteriorated and he suffered a catalogue of ailments including heart, liver and kidney failure.
