Another great collaboration to bring Alcove Video Carephones to people.
If you feel that a Video Carephone would help a relative or friend - and they receive a council care package or are known to Essex County Council - then please contact their care provider directly and they can put you in touch with the team.
If this is not applicable and your friend or relative does not have access to mainstream technology (eg ipads and smart phone), struggles to maintain contact with people and is either shielding or isolating, then please email email@example.com and they can look into their individual circumstances.We are very proud to be working with Essex County Council to provide a new virtual care, health and wellbeing solution to provide support for the most vulnerable people in North East Essex during COVID-19 crisis.
Essex County Council is rolling-out 2,000 Alcove Video Carephones, an integrated, easy-to-use device, which enables users – especially those with limited or no tech skills - to make and receive video calls to pre-identified services via a locked down device and a web portal.
The roll-out builds on the collaborative work already in progress as part of the Live Well programme under the North East Essex Health and Wellbeing Alliance – a group of local organisations who are committed to working together to improve the health and wellbeing of local residents.
