TELECARE equipment that helps vulnerable people in Moray live at home independently is to be highlighted in a series of roadshows starting next week and coinciding with Scottish Telehealth and Telecare Week.
Moray Council’s community care team is holding information sessions across the area to teach people about how discreet sensors and alarms can offer peace of mind.
The first of the four sessions will be held at Buckie Library on Wednesday from 10.30am-3.30pm, and the second at Elgin Library on Monday, October 28, from 1pm-4pm.
Elgin’s St Giles Shopping Centre will host the third session on Wednesday, October 30, from 10am to 4pm, and Forres Library will be the venue on Thursday, October 31, from 10am-4pm.
Telecare equipment includes smoke detectors, door and bed sensors, community alarms and fall detectors, which can send an emergency alarm through the phone line directly to a carer’s mobile phone or pager.
Messages can also be sent to a call monitoring centre, which is manned around the clock.
