Assistive technology and telehealthcare in Cambridgeshire

Some long-term conditions can be monitored through ‘telehealth’, provided in conjunction with specialist nursing teams and community matrons. Health conditions are monitored and managed at a distance, leading to fewer hospital admissions.

The Assistive Technology and Telehealthcare team can complete a home assessment to see how well someone using sensors is managing, and create a 24-hour activity map. This can help support people to maintain their independence and to tailor care packages to their needs.

The team can also provide a range of devices, call 01223 883756 or visit www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/adults/equipment
