Telecare is changing. 2025 will see BT turn off its ageing analogue network for good as the UK embrace a fully digital network. The transition is already well underway - as soon as next year, BT will stop selling analogue lines. It's the chance to embrace more reliable, secure, and cost-efficient telecare solutions.
The Telecare Service Association (TSA) says that a large proportion of telecare service providers haven't even begun to upgrade their analogue equipment. They recommend immediate, collaborative action to avert potentially major disruption to services.

We offer technology agnostic solutions which are tailored to end users' needs. We pride ourselves on our half a century of tech heritage: with many years' experience manufacturing digital devices, handling hundreds of thousands of digital telecare calls each year, in 2007 as one of the first businesses globally to manufacturer a digital device and playing an active part pioneering digital communication protocols.
By 2025, millions of the analogue telecare devices that older people rely upon will become obsolete. Read our whitepaper on digitising technology enabled care.
