UK Social Care is in Crisis
A combination of budgetary pressures, a severe lack of care staff and an ever increasing ageing population have resulted in a crisis within the UK Social Care sector. Meaning there are now an overwhelming amount of overstretched care providers whose low paid care staff are bearing the full impact of the current economic turmoil whilst trying to deliver an outdated diarised model of care to an increasing number of vulnerable people whose support needs are simply not being met.
New Model designed to increase effectiveness & efficiency of care delivered
Tecura’s new Technology Enabled Care Model is designed to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of care delivered in a person’s home. This is done by extending and augmenting the face2face care and support package (where needed) to include the effective use of edge technology and a digital care service to deliver better outcomes for vulnerable individuals.
In practical terms this means an individual continues to receive the aspects of face2face care where they are really needed, but via the introduction of an interactive screen, an IoT gateway, lifestyle monitoring sensors and a digital care service (staffed by trained carers using video calling ) the current rigid model of care and support becomes more flexible and responsive to support the individual to be as independent and safe as possible.
