October 16, 2019

TSA quality telecare award

Taking Care have achieved the TSA Quality Standards Framework for Chichester Careline.

Taking Care were awarded the QSF at the TSA's International Technology Enabled Care Conference (ITEC) gala dinner on the 15th October. The QSF offers Technology Enabled Care providers a way of demonstrating safety and quality.

The transition project that has been recognised means that Taking Care now partners with 20 local authorities. With the UK’s elderly population living longer, often with long-term medical conditions, local authorities are facing increasing pressure to deliver essential telecare and lifeline services with stretched resources.

Taking Care is able to provide these authorities with best of breed technology combined with specialist telecare operators, to support the most vulnerable in their communities.
