Caring for our Carers

Devoted to providing greater independence for vulnerable independent people (VIP) Oysta additionally strive to offer an extra layer of help and support for the people who devote their time to caring for others.

When someone’s life is changed by old age, ill-health or accidents, behind them other people’s lives are also affected. The role of carer is tough, unrelenting, and often thankless Whether someone is a professional carer or family or friend who has stepped in to provide the required support. Giving carers the opportunity for greater independence, Oysta’s telecare solutions shoulder some of the responsibility when it comes to the well-being of a loved one. Keeping the carer in contact, keeping VIP safe and providing peace of mind through constant monitoring, Oysta’s digital telecare technology provides 24/7 care, wherever the VIP may be. Enabling carers to nip to the shops, take a break or visit a friend, with Oysta they can relax, safe in the knowledge that during the short time they are away, their charge is in safe hands.

In honour of Professional Care Workers Week, we would like to share with you a selection of stories from our VIP’s and their carers, to demonstrate how telecare technology is enabling independence both for the VIP and their carer:
