Telecare and caring networks: how does telecare fit in?
AKTIVE researchers Emma-Reetta Koivunen and Gary Fry will present initial findings on the ongoing research. This presentation in CIRCLE and Care-Connect seminar series ‘â€˜Caring in the Family’, will focus on telecare and carers of older people. These technologies can be used to support independent living and family carers. However, the possibilities of the technology are balanced with the needs and abilities of the people using these technologies, their carers and care workers, and in many cases the local authorities who pay for these services.
