At 52, Mick Burkhill was a successful Regional Sales Manager who enjoyed his life. In 2007, things took a dramatic turn for the worst and he had to make a life changing decision; Move into residential care or embrace the idea of Telecare.  Six years later, Mick remains at home and values his independence more than ever - he openly admits that Telecare saved his life.

In recognition of his life changing experience, Mick realised that he had a great story to tell and wanted as many people to hear about it as possible. His aim was to promote the awareness of telecare to the masses and more importantly, engage with those people who had concerns about how the implementation of assistive technology would impact on their day to day lives.

 This workshop will detail the evolution of the ‘Mick’s House’ initiative, its current status, successes so far and ask what’s next?
