Irish Government's new telecare scheme

A few weeks ago – yes, it’s been that low key we’ve not picked it up before – the Irish Government announced that it was replacing the previous ‘Scheme of Community Support for Older People’ with a simplified ‘Seniors Alert Scheme’. The press release promises more detail on the Government’s website, but we couldn’t find any, apart from the press release iteself. [Would love to hear from any reader who can throw more light on it.

UPDATE Tue 15th: Thanks to Toni Bunting of TASK Community Care – “Ireland’s longest established Telecare Provider” – for the following link to the Government webpage on the scheme: Seniors Alert – Communities Supporting Older People. TASK Community Care’s press release on the subject and their newly redesigned website.
