Telecare SIM Cards & Support Services

Telecare SIM cards are a pivotal component in ensuring the safety and well-being of individuals in need. With a range of intelligent features designed to monitor and respond to emergencies, our telecare SIM cards are revolutionising the way we provide care and support to the elderly and vulnerable. Whether it be personal alarm, an emergency alerts service, remote monitoring of health conditions, fall detection, or simply providing a lifeline for those living alone, telecare SIM cards have become an invaluable tool in society, empowering individuals to live independently while offering peace of mind to their loved ones.

A Broader View of Telecare Services & Protection

Councils and connected care providers need to maintain connectivity as an important safety feature when providing essential health and care monitoring at patients’ homes or supported care environments. This can be viewed as inside their home or care home, or a wider footprint including outside areas such as gardens or necessary trips such as shopping routines. Caburn Telecom’s connectivity solutions enable care providers to provide their devices independence from their unreliable home service user’s broadband or Wi-Fi. This ensues that they have full control for uninterrupted patient monitoring, reporting and alerting services. This can include wireless lone worker alarms or man down alarm systems, wireless nurse call systems, or the provision of resilient and optimum WiFi in care homes via our managed router services.

Telecare, Health systems and cities are continually getting smarter as the potential in IoT is recognised and exploited to integrate the disparate elements of a city’s infrastructure and its interaction with the population including those who are most vulnerable. This digitisation means many telecare systems are becoming more sophisticated and provide a more holistic view of elderly independence and wellbeing. Of course, the bedrock of Telecare remains the ability to contact vulnerable people or for them to ask for help when and where they need it.  

Digital Solutions for Health & Telecare Challenges

Caburn Telecom provides resilient and secure independent connectivity used in telecare alarms and home monitoring gateways and hubs. This removes the reliance on the patients’ own broadband services – with the obvious attendant password and reliability issues. 

This has great benefits to home care patients, who spend the maximum time in familiar surroundings, minimise or avoid acute illnesses and exposure to the risk of hospital acquired infection. Health Services can reduce the number of emergency admissions to over-full hospitals, and are enabled to discharge recovering patients to home more quickly freeing beds for new arrivals. This can also help families of patients who are better able to monitor the care and wellbeing of their relatives with less disruption to their daily lives via smart apps.

We also provide solutions that enable legacy analogue telephony devices to remain operation post the analogue shut down post 2025. This is important as many existing alarm products rely on analogue services to remain operational. Please click here to find out more information: VoiceLink PSTN to VoIP Converter | CSL Group (

Integration of Telecare with Technologies such as IoT & AI

Telecare is undergoing a remarkable transformation through the integration of emerging technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). This integration brings together interconnected devices and advanced algorithms to create a seamless and efficient telecare experience. With IoT, wearable devices and sensors can transmit real-time health data to healthcare providers, enabling timely interventions and personalised care. 

AI is beginning to impact telecare by automating routine tasks and developing a greater understanding of individual(s) routines and any early warning signs or concerning trends or behaviours. This is possible via AI and machine learning systems analysing vast amounts of contextual data, and providing valuable insights for more informed decision-making. As these technologies continue to advance, the integration in telecare paves the way for a new era of patient-centric care, improving outcomes and transforming lives.

The Impact of the PSTN Switch-Off on Traditional Telecare Phone Systems

The switch off of the PSTN is set to have a significant impact on traditional phone systems across the UK. With the move towards digital and VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technologies, many businesses and individuals who still rely on traditional landline systems will need to adapt to the changing telecommunications landscape. The switch off will not only affect how phone calls are made and received, but also the infrastructure and equipment supporting these systems. 

Businesses will need to invest in upgrading their devices and systems to ensure they remain connected and accessible in a post-PSTN world. Many alarm systems such as systems with panic pendants, communications hubs and boxes, careline alarm, wide emergency alerts service(s) will need to be replaced or upgraded with fibre, ethernet or GSM alarm system(s) or a mobile telecare solution. For example, a digital fall alarm, or a dual SIM enabled telecare communications and alarm hub. 

This transition may pose challenges for those who are unfamiliar with digital technologies, highlighting the importance of education and support in navigating this change. Ultimately, the PSTN switch off marks a significant shift in how we communicate, pushing us towards a more interconnected and digitally-driven future.

The Reasons for the PSTN Switch Off

One of the key reasons for the switch off of the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) is the infrastructure’s outdated technology. As more and more people transition to digital communication methods like Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and mobile phone technologies such as Voice over LTE (VoLTE), the traditional copper wire network of the PSTN has become increasingly obsolete. This switch off will allow telecommunications providers to reallocate resources towards more efficient and modern network technologies, ensuring better service for customers in the long run.
