Abstract: Standard establishes ‘minimum requirements that should be met by any teleassistance service’. Such services are seen as operating 24 hours a day and providing an ‘immediate response to various contingencies’. This includes their role in tracking the geographical position of users. It is focused on service provision rather than on the technologies.
Relevance to Active and Healthy Ageing: High
Older Person Specific : Yes
Usage: Not known
Comment: Standard offers useful operational framework with a limited range of linked performance indicators. These include those that relate to mobile responses (where the latter are included). Particular attention is given to the (i) protocols for working with and providing information to and obtaining consent (‘acceptance of service’) from service users; (ii) knowledge, expertise and training of service staff; and (iii) accessibility and operation of devices in the homes of users.
