Scotland’s Joint Improvement Team determined through this case study that the distribution of Telecare equipment to 325 Dementia patients in Renfrewshire between 2007 and 2012 improved user experience and saved both user and healthcare provider money. Telecare allows patients to avoid unnecessary admissions to care homes and hospitals, saving them money and time, as well as increasing their confidence and independence.
