In Edinburgh the ATEC24 Community Alarm Telecare Service is launching a new e-learning course for frontline colleagues to:
- showcase current telecare equipment available within the City of Edinburgh Council and Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership
- explain how to refer for a community alarm service
- give you the information you need to guide people on other types of digital technology and where they can get advice.
This new module will replace the current face to face training. The module will give you the knowledge and confidence to support the most vulnerable groups in Edinburgh including:
- older people with dementia, mobility and communication issues
- children with complex needs, including learning disabilities and autism
- people with drug and alcohol problems
- adults with complex needs
- citizens who may be at risk of falls
- people who need support to stay safe and remain independent at home.
With interactive features, videos, and in-depth guidance on technologies, the module captures all the value and effectiveness normally achieved by formal classroom learning.
