Ambient Assisted Living, Telecare and Telehealth are conceptual frameworks that combine technological developments and organizational innovation in order to allow frail, older people or people with chronic diseases or disabilities independent living at home. In recent years a variety of political initiatives and pilot projects were established internationally. Those range from the development of new technologies and trials, qualitative studies on the impact on clients, carers and professionals to large randomized control trials. In the European project MATSIQUEL the diffusion and the current situation of Telecare and Telehealth concepts in Australia, the United Kingdom and Germany are analyzed in more depth. This contribution looks in a generic way on the developments in Australia and the UK.
