This book explores how telecare can contribute to the support, protection, and quality of life of people with dementia. It also considers the importance of telecare in providing support and reassurance to carers. This is one of a number of publications funded by the Scottish Government’s National Telecare Development Programme, in pursuit of the strategic goal of raising awareness of the importance of telecare in contemporary health and social care services. The other books in this series are:
- Telecare and learning disability – using telecare effectively in the support of people with learning disabilities
- Telecare and physical disability − using telecare effectively in the support of people with severe physical disabilities and long-term chronic conditions
- Telecare and sensory impairment – using telecare effectively in the support of people with sensory impairments
The books are written for assessors, care and support staff and their managers, telecare service managers and development staff. Senior managers should also find them useful in informing service planning, and they should help raise awareness, expectations and generally advance understanding among service users and carers.
