Telecare solutions for older people and carers

Authors: Chapman, A. & Yeandle, S.      Published: January 2016

This Policy Brief is based on a policy-practice workshop ‘Advances in telecare: new solutions for carers and older people’, held at Queen’s University Belfast on 9 June 2015. The brief includes an overview of four presentations at the workshop covering a study of telecare, older people and those caring for them in England (Sue Yeandle); on a telemonitoring scheme in Northern Ireland’s health and social care system (Soo Hun); on the use of GPS systems in occupational therapy to support people living with dementia (Karen Walls); and on Carers UK’s work to support effective implementation of technology (Steve Peebles).
