Telecare is increasingly seen as the best solution for safeguarding people, managing risk and enabling independence in a cost-effective, personalised way.
A wide range of uses
Telecare can support patients after a stay in hospital, help with greater self-care and independence, and reduce the need for residential care.
Benefits for carers
Telecare allows carers to take some time to themselves while giving them peace of mind, knowing that the people they look after are being supported when they’re not there.
Telecare systems can be programmed to monitor health. This preventative mode, often known as lifestyle monitoring, can provide early warning of deterioration, prompting a response from family or professionals.

We currently run comprehensive assistive technology projects in East Sussex, West Sussex, Cheshire West and Chester, Cheshire East and Cumbria, encompassing assessment, procurement and management of equipment and support services such as monitoring and installation. The success of these projects is largely due to our in-depth understanding and the ability to engage constructively with the complex stakeholder mix.
We’re the chosen partner of many public sector organisations, such as County & District Councils, NHS Trusts, sheltered housing providers, social services, care agencies, voluntary organisations and private companies.
West Sussex County Council and NHS West Sussex work exclusively with Welbeing to provide a free 13 week package of telecare to those referred to the scheme.
The referral process is straightforward and you need to talk to your local health or social services care team. At the end of the free period you can either return the equipment or continue as a private customer, just as over 70% of our customers choose to do. For more information see West Sussex County Council’s website.
