Roommate: Keeping your loved ones safe while ensuring their privacy
We are rolling out a ‘revolutionary’ Scandinavian state-of-the-art falls prevention technology and it is already seeing impressive results.
We have partnered with Norway-based Sensio, to install RoomMate, a revolutionary safety sensor. The use of the sensors has been the subject of a hugely successful pilot at the group’s Foxhunters Care Community in Abergavenny, South Wales where its installation has helped prevent multiple falls and potential injuries, as well as freeing up care team time to spend with residents.
The RoomMate sensor sends out infrared light and scans the room anonymously, so a person’s privacy is not impacted. Should the sensor detect anything of concern, it will automatically send notifications to the home’s alarm system and to devices held by the care team., who can complete an anonymised digital supervision of the room before taking immediate action if need be.
The person does not have to wear any device and the sensor can be customised individually. Using the sensors also helps reduce the need for the care team to physically supervise people in their rooms, protecting sleep and rest times and improving quality of life for residents.
