An article from Kevin Beirne, Group Housing Director of Housing Care and Support for One Housing Group, which discusses how telehealthcare will play a key role in the future of assisted living for residents, has appeared on The Guardian’s Housing Network.
Six years ago, One Housing Group decided to embrace telecare technology fully to make it a core part of their service offering.
