Provided via a tablet device, remote care involves video- and audio-transmitted care service where a healthcare professional contacts the client remotely at the agreed-upon times.
The client may also contact the service when needed. The service is always based on the client’s needs and follows the treatment plan.
The remote care service helps clients in their everyday life by, for example, reminding them to take their medication, test their blood glucose or have an exercise session.
We also organise joint mealtimes for clients who wish to talk with other people like in a video call.
We provide the service in collaboration with the Home Care Services of the City of Helsinki Department of Social Services and Health Care. Remote care complements physical visits by home care staff.
