4 Reasons housing providers must revise their Telecare needs post COVID-19

The findings of the research undertaken by Appello, a leading digital, technology-enabled care service (TECS) provider, supported by the Housing LIN, paints a promising picture for the future of digital care technologies with 74% of housing providers claiming that their requirements for wellbeing technology have changed as a result of the pandemic.

The results of a survey of 120 senior executives from providers of supported, sheltered and retirement housing which are being published in a series of reports from Appello, found that 90% of those surveyed planned to utilise technology further to support residents who may have to self-isolate or shield as a result of the pandemic.
