Scottish communities minister Malcolm Chisholm has announced new funding of £8m for Telecare initiatives in Scotland. Speaking at Hanover (Scotland) Housing Association’s Colinshiel Court, in Armadale, Mr Chisholm said the money would help older people, who may otherwise have gone into full time residential care, feel more secure at home. “Telecare also provides peace of mind to their families and support for carers,” the minister said.
