Tanisha’s Story – Safe at Home
You may have read Nigel’s reason for creating TEC-Angel and Tanisha is an example of someone, following a traumatic accident, who is young and wanting to live her life to the full, independently and without feeling her parents are watching over her every move. Tanisha was concerned a telecare system would be invasive and allow her parents to know everything she does in her home and didn’t want to look like someone’s grandmother wearing a pendant alarm.
Raj and Vidya are Tanisha’s parents and just want their daughter to return to being happy and independent while also being able to provide her with the support she may need. The TEC-Angel system allows Tanisha to get on with her life but alerts Raj and Vidya when Tanisha needs their help; keeping falls out of her wheelchair, just that.
