Abstract

This paper looks at the ethical issues in the implementation of telecare policy. Telecare has great potential to benefit people who use services, improving their confidence and helping them to remain independent in their own homes. By monitoring people’s safety, it can also free up the time of friends and family carers who can then spend more time providing social support. It has also been said to reduce the costs of social care provision, allowing the more efficient deployment of direct care staff.
