This session looks at the evidence base for using Telecare to support people with dementia to live at home.  The workshop will provide you with an understanding of the information you need to identify cost benefits of using Telecare with conventional care to manage risks, reduce delayed discharges, save hospital bed days and avoid or delay care home admissions.  You will have the opportunity to hear about the evaluation of a local service in Renfrewshire including the proof that using Telecare can generate real savings at the same time as improving the choices and quality of life for people with dementia and their carers.  This workshop is relevant to staff in health, social care and housing - from operational managers, commissioners, heads of service and directors to academics and consultants.
