How does telecare work?
Teleassistance works by using a reliable remote system or equipment. This equipment is composed of an alert button or a geolocated transmitter: in the form of a box that holds a speaker and a microphone, connected to a plug connected to a telephone line and a remote control: that you must wear as a bracelet or pendant to activate the alarm at any time. As soon as you press your alarm button, the system immediately calls the assistance service so that an operator can call and speak with the beneficiary for an evaluation of the situation to find the appropriate solutions. The intervention of one or more operators is carried out in case of an emergency or a serious incident. See the following link for more information: tele-assistance-senior.fr.
