To celebrate 30 years of growing telecare in the province of Mecklenburg Vorpommern, the German Red Cross “DRK Hausnotruf MV” held a great event bringing together guests, partners, and carephone owners.
Among the attendees of the celebration were Mr. Peter Struve, Chairman of the Board of German Red Cross Güstrow (DRK Kreisverband Güstrow), and Mrs. Janine Kiepura, head of Hausnotruf Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
Also, Frank Theunissen, Sales Manager of Legrand Care in Germany, attended the event and was so happy to hand over two special carephones printed with the 30th anniversary on the front.
Mr. Struve and Mr. Theunissen have enjoyed working together since 1991. Back then the technical requirements for telecare were established. Finally, in 1992 the first carephone was installed and put into use.
The oldest participant of the event, Margarete Zippel, a 103-year-old telecare user, emphasized how grateful she is to have a carephone at home
