British Telecom (BT) are recruiting participants for a trial called ‘Connected Care’. The trial uses simple technology to support people to continue to live independently in their own homes.
The purpose of the trial is to test new hardware and software that make up the Connected Care product. Connected Care will collect some data, which it will share with a scheme manager, to assist with the trialists care. The trial will last between 8-12 weeks between the months of September and December.
The trial does not require any knowledge of technology. Connected Care will be installed into your homes by a BT colleague (and removed at the end of the trial). Alternatively, a family member or a carer can install the kit, with instructions from BT, and this is simple to do.
