Technology Enabled Care (TEC)

The TEC team provides guidance, training and advice to citizens and professionals. When appropriate, we can loan assistive technology to support the independence and safety of people living in Cambridgeshire. We can also provide reassurance and support for family members. People are happier and healthier when they can remain as independent as possible in their communities.

Our services:

  • prevent, reduce and delay the need for formal care services
  • support informal carers
  • help communities build resilience

How can TEC make life easier?

Telecare Services Association (TSA) has a number of inspiring video case studies which show the impact TEC can have on individuals and their families.
