Telecare

Helping you stay in your home

The Telecare Service is provided by Grand Union Housing Group in partnership with Bedford Borough and Central Bedfordshire Councils, South Northamptonshire Council, Bedfordshire Primary Care Trust, Tunstall Group.

The idea is to help vulnerable older people be cared for in their own homes for longer. The Telecare Service is also known as assistive technology which has many benefits.

The Telecare Service can often delay the move into residential care as well as providing support to people returning from hospital – in some cases it may mean they are allowed to go home earlier after a hospital stay.
