Deployment of telecare is being driven by policy in different European contexts, however little is known about the utilization of telecare following installation.

Characteristics of service users that influence use is presented. 50.6% of contact episodes were due to activation of devices and sensors; 17.7% to service users contacting the call centre for support, referral to other services; and 31.3% to managing the system.
