Real Time Care is a family business providing consultancy and technology to help the elderly stay independent in their own home. Our core service is the provision of private and secure Care-Cameras at home. Our Care-Cameras enable family members to keep a loving watch over vulnerable relatives from their PC, laptop or smartphone.

Our solution is seen as complementary to the Telecare service as it offers a visual aid when alerts go off giving the families instant access to detail of what the problem is and peace of mind 24/7. We charge just £1 per day for up to three Care-Cameras including supply, installation and support.
