Telecare.ie is Ireland’s online magazine for all things ‘telecare’. Our purpose is to help you learn about emergency pendant alarms, other telecare devices and 24/7 monitoring. Whether you are an individual, a community worker or a health professional, we want to ensure you are better informed about monitored alarms and the different options for telecare.
