Partnership will develop monitoring and support
Help the Aged and TeleLarm Care have formed a partnership to offer what they say is a new concept in social alarm monitoring and other support services. The new venture will be based at Rotherham, in TeleLarm Care’s new building, where a state-of-the-art care centre is being established. Help the Aged’s current community alarm service, SeniorLink will remain under that name but will move from Woking to Rotherham. The charity says it will continue to provide a friendly 24 contact service for older people. The benefits to Help the Aged will include access to new technology and the ability to influence technological developments to the benefit of older people. The benefits for TeleLarm Care include a partner with the experience and reputation of providing high quality to older people and the opportunity to build on Help the Aged’s established monitoring activities. The launch of the service is planned for Spring 2001.
