Madrid ups the ante for telecare for seniors. The Government of the Community of Madrid has awarded the latest contract for €10 million to acquire digital terminals and advanced telecare devices for elderly dependents.
The total investment for this program, which will involve the acquisition of 310,000 devices, exceeds €39 million, according to the Community Executive in a statement.
This technology will make it possible to replace the current analog home telecare systems with digital sensor systems, among which there will be mobility detectors that will make it possible to control the activity or inactivity of a person, falls, medication dispensers, or magnetic witnesses to know if they open or no doors to the house or the ignition of electrical appliances.
The renovation will affect the 179 municipalities in the region and will adapt the service to the needs of the 94,000 users with some type of dependency who will benefit from it, compared to the 65,000 who now enjoy the traditional red button that has been in operation since the 1990s.

Madrid invests in telecare and renews technological devices for 94,000 users in the region
The objective of advanced home telecare is to improve the quality of life of the elderly, ensuring intervention when they have a personal, social, or medical need to guarantee their safety and prolong their stay in their homes as much as possible in the face of alternatives such as day centers or residences.
The beneficiaries of this new model of telecare in the Community of Madrid, with European funds, will also have a home habit detector. Through the measurement of values related to humidity, temperature, light, or electricity consumption, they will configure their life pattern with their daily routines (sleep, meals, exits, and entrances). Unusual activities or deviations from those routines will automatically generate an alert in the control center, as they may be indicators of a risk situation.
Precisely, a few weeks ago, the Government of the Community of Madrid announced the investment of €7.6 million in the extension of two contracts for public residences for the elderly. The Villa el Padro center will offer 120 residential spaces and 40-day centers, while the Plata y Castañar center, located in the capital city, will have 220 residential spaces and 45-day shifts.
The day centers of the health residences will be of a socio-rehabilitation nature and day stay for the elderly with reduced autonomy. The doctors and nurses will develop a gerontological and rehabilitative activity that includes the actions of preventive and care medicine, as well as psychological guidance with the diagnosis.
