Telecross is provided by Australian Read Cross and it is a service that provides phone calls on a daily basis to check on a person's wellbeing. Telecross is for people who live alone and are at risk of an accident or illness that may go unnoticed. In particular, people who:
- are frail and elderly
- have a disability
- are housebound
- are recovering from an illness or accident.
Telecross is also available to the carers of people who are eligible for the service. When family and carers are away, or if someone has just returned home after a hospital stay, Telecross can also be used on a temporary basis.
