Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council - Telecare

Our Telecare system uses a series of sensors to monitor for potentially dangerous situations in your home, such as floods, fire, gas leaks, falls, and intruders. It also provides a security solution to protect you, your belongings and your home.

When a sensor is activated, by smoke for example, it sends a radio signal to the monitoring unit, which then calls the 24-hour Care Call Centre where trained operators can take appropriate action. The Telecare system means that help can be raised 24 hours a day. The system also allows two-way speech between you and the centre. When used as part of an agreed package of care, Telecare can help you to avoid a hospital stay or put off moving into a residential care home.
