Teleassistance service

The City Council teleassistance service consists of installing an apparatus in the home. This is connected to a central headquarters, with which the person can communicate in case of emergency, by pressing a button. It provides assistance for elderly people, and those with disabilities and/or dependency so that they can continue living safely in their homes.
