Assistive technology


supporting staff in identifying deterioration at an early stage. For the high proportion of residents in care homes who have dementia, the system can provide objective information on their health status, where they may be unable to accurately describe their symptoms themselves. The system now includes a health questionnaire specific to Covid-19, enabling residents with symptoms to be identified as early as possible. It is not just the new propositions which are supporting customers through Covid-19. Tunstall has a range of technology available to support the delivery of safe and effective care in residential environments.


Making a difference


Tunstall Carecom is one such example which already supports over 60,000 residents in care homes across Europe and has been developed to meet the demands of modern care delivery and support residential and nursing care homes. During the pandemic, technology like this can make a huge difference in the level of care being provided, while also supporting the mental health of care home workers.


Carecom moves beyond traditional, fixed call-points to a wireless and digital system and enables care to be more efficient and responsive, with straightforward, non-obtrusive installation. Care homes can then continue to offer residents a high degree of security and freedom with receivers


and beacons placed around the building to enable effective responses to events, while also supporting integration with numerous telecare sensors according to individual needs.


For example, sensors are available that will automatically detect if a resident has fallen and raise an alert with a carer, reducing the need for ‘just in case’ checks, so enabling staff time to be used more effectively and ensuring residents get help quickly in an emergency. Carecom works across a number of devices, including mobile phones, so that carers are able to manage the system from anywhere at any time, securing rapid responses and enabling person- centred care delivery. This enables high quality care to continue, even during social isolation and lockdown, and gives social care staff the peace of mind that their residents are safe and secure.


Why invest in assistive technology?


Smart solutions and assistive technology helps to protect the safety of individuals, especially where residents are particularly frail or vulnerable, providing 24-hour reassurance. This helps to improve quality of life, health and wellbeing, whilst also enabling care home workers to provide high quality care more efficiently, even during a pandemic. As more of our population is affected by Covid-19, technology will allow daily monitoring to be delivered more effectively, enabling independence and help keep care home residents out of hospitals.


Technology has a key role to play in increasing the capacity of our health and social care services, and enabling flexibility in the way care is delivered. This
