    Abstract

    The legal, ethical and socioeconomic aspects of telecare differ from those relating to telemedicine/telehealth and are examined in this paper with respect to older persons’ community care. Factors examined include equipment liability, service malpractice, technical and service standards, consent and mental capacity, liberty and justice, research trials, human factors, dependence, privacy, security, accessibility, quality, affordability, social inequalities and community factors.
