This paper considers where telecare services may be in 15 years time. It considers the role of various drivers including demographic demands and economic realities along with the emergence of new technologies such as Zigbee. The conclusion is that the influences are not entirely predictable because of the possibility of political interventions, and the changes in culture and values of the population in the future. It might therefore be necessary to create a model to interpret the impact of various factors including the environment.
