Liverpool invests in technology
LIVERPOOL is to massively increase the use of technology which assists older people to live at home safely. 
Over the next three years, state-of-the-art telecare monitoring equipment is to be installed in more than 900 homes using £1.9million of funding from the city council and Liverpool PCT. 
'One of the biggest fears elderly people have about getting old is being uprooted and moved into a care home,' said councillor Ron Gould, executive member for health and social care. 'The aim is to give people help and support to live in their own homes for as long as possible."

Company looks to branch out
A FAMILY-RUN domiciliary care company based in Sussex has announced plans to open new branches and acquire similar existing companies throughout the south east 
Prime Care employs care and support workers to help older and disabled people to remain independent in their own homes along the south coast between Brighton and Hastings.  
Formed in 2001, the company was the first social care organisation in the UK to achieve the advanced Investor in People Profile accreditation and was short-listed as an IiP Champion organisation in 2006.
