telemenow.com, a world leader in providing health and care technology, has tripled its headcount, moved to the Stockport Business and Innovation Centre and increased its monthly website visitors to 60,000 per month, since its launch in May 2015.
The company is tackling the reality of our ageing population by providing technology that helps people live independently in their own homes, for as long as possible.
The cost of elderly care is a huge issue which those living alone and their relatives face. A recent report by the Citizens Advice Bureau suggests that nearly half of the over 65 population need some form of care. The number of people aged 85 or above is also set to double in the next 20 years.
The telmenow.com website sells products that help people proactively manage their health and care needs. This not only enables them to live in their own homes for longer but it also provides peace of mind for relatives who can feel confident that their loved ones are safe. Products include personal or home safety devices – such as GPS tracking devices and nuisance call blockers – as well as solutions designed specifically to assist sufferers of specific medical conditions, including dementia day clocks, epilepsy smartwatches and blood glucose meters.
All products are tested and reviewed by the company’s panel of experts to ensure that they meet the very highest standard and “do what they say on the box”. Its panel does the hard work by narrowing down product choices to only the best available on the market. A bespoke algorithm within the site also helps visitors to select the most appropriate products for their needs and its 24/7 advice line means visitors can discuss their requirements before they buy.
telmenow.com was set up by a passionate group of experts in health and care technology. Its products are sold across the globe from telmenow.com’s new headquarters in the Stockport Council and EU-supported Stockport Business and Innovation Centre.
“The response to the website has been phenomenal” says Norman Niven, founder of telmenow.com. “It’s fantastic that we’re all living longer but we have to face the realities that come with that, namely the spiralling costs of care as we grow older. Our products enable people to proactively manage their own care and to remain independent for as long as possible. We’re also there for relatives who want to know that their loved ones have everything they need to keep them safe at home.
“Our new offices and expanded team have given us a strong platform for growth and we look forward to building on this in 2016.”
