Community Care;5/13/2010, Issue 1818, p28
The article reports on the need on the part of professionals in telecare to ensure that they don't breach service users' rights, though the technology can increase the independence and safety of older and disabled people. It generally involves remote monitoring and can include the use of detectors or monitors which pick up falls, or are sensitive to fire and gas, that trigger a warning. But it will fail if the professionals choose to impose it on people with out their consent. .
