MCG's TeleCare equipment is affordable and easy to use. It supports people who want to keep their independence and carry on living in their own homes. That's because the equipment we install makes it possible for us to get help to them quickly, should they need it — for example, if they have a fall or a health-related issue develops. This contributes enormously to the quality of their lives and that of their families and carers. The service we provide is monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and we respond instantly to any alerts we receive.
TeleCare is normally used as part of a package of care services. It benefits:
- Elderly, infirm or disabled people who are becoming progressively less stable
- People who have recently been discharged from hospital and require additional support
- Vulnerable people living alone and those at risk from bogus callers
- Victims of domestic violence.
People who use MCG's TeleCare Solutions service tell us that it increases their confidence and makes them feel safe. Our systems also provide peace of mind to friends, families and carers, who know that help is just the push of a button away.
MCG works closely with the NHS and social services to help them to reduce the burden on their services.
How does TeleCare work?
An extensive range of products has been developed to support the basic TeleCare service. These include property exit sensors, which monitor people leaving buildings at unusual times, and are useful for those with concerns about dementia sufferers, who may be prone to walking about. Medication dispensers, fall detectors, extreme temperature sensors and natural gas detectors can also be used to complement the basic TeleCare package. Many other products are also available.

What our customers say...
"Before he had TeleCare, I only left him to get essentials and would return as quickly as possible. As a carer, it has given me freedom to go out and not worry too much."
"I think mum's much safer. And I now know she's taking her medication properly to keep her well."
"It's a relief to feel like we're not on duty 24/7. It's wonderful to relax and sleep in our own bed."
"I can potter around in the shed again and know that the pager will bleep if my wife wanders out of the house on her own."
"MCG's staff are always happy to give her reassurance because sometimes she's nervous when I go out."
