TeleCare helps avert a burglary to a bed-ridden Claremont residents home

We had an emergency call on 27/03/2012 at 00h13, through the TeleCare™ unit, from a lady that lives alone in her home in Claremont. She has a rare disease, is bed ridden and her TeleCare™ service is 100% subsidised by the Department of the Social Development in the Western Cape.

She heard someone trying to break in through her front door and pushed her help button. We could hear it through the TeleCare™ unit and immediately called the police on 10111.

The police were there within minutes and caught the burglar in the act!
