Caring for the elderly is turning to forms of community care and home care. Telecare is one of those emergent modalities of caring. This article will explore the meanings that older people give to the experience of staying at home in later life by using telecare. Discourse analysis is used to examine a set of focus groups and interviews with telecare users from different cities of Catalonia (Spain). The outcomes include three interpretative repertoires that we called: “Aging at home”, “normal aging” and “unsafe aging”. For each repertoire we examine how the permanence of older people in their homes is accounted, and which role telecare plays in such experience.
