Assistive technology and telehealthcare in Cambridgeshire
Assistive technology and telehealthcare in Cambridgeshire is used to monitor people in their own homes and keep them safe.
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
