CLB Acoustic Monitoring
Restful Homes Group
Restful Homes Group is a family-owned and run care home group that has been operating the highest quality of care homes for the past 30 years.
They are committed to providing industry-leading environments for the care of older people especially those living with Dementia.
Adaptive IT were tasked with installing the CLB Acoustic Monitoring system at their new purpose-built luxury care home in Shirley, Solihull.
This will provide individualised care for residents from the area.
Provision needed to be made for all of the 86 resident bedrooms – Dementia sufferers needed to be able to call for assistance at night time without using traditional Nurse Call methods.
Adaptive IT's Solution
CLB ACOUSTIC MONITORING:
A single CLB Acoustic Monitoring Module was installed into each resident bedroom – this monitors sound in a room and when a concerning noise is heard an alert is sent to a central station.
This means that the need for checks is reduced, disturbance is kept to a minimum, care is only given when needed and events that may ordinarily not have been uncovered are addressed and dealt with in a timely fashion.
KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS –
For Residents – Less disturbance at night means better sleep quality which delivers tangible wellbeing benefits – such as,
– Less susceptible to falls
– More active in the daytime
– Less stress and anxiety
– Less reliance on medications
– By being better rested residents are more likely to be able to eat so weight loss issues can be addressed
– Privacy protected & Dignity improved by less in-room interventions – this especially helps new residents that are adjusting to a new environment
– Aggression detected so abuse is prevented.
The system also delivers –
– Preventative Care – As staff are alerted as soon as a resident is about to get out of bed they can proactively provide assistance which significantly reduces the number of fall incidents.
For Staff –
– Care staff are much better informed as to what care is required for each resident during the night
– Improved response times to events can lead to improved outcomes – Medical events such as choking and cardiac arrest have been able to be identified
– Care decisions made by care staff – once Acoustic Alert is generated, staff can use, 2-way communication, Live Audio, Recording of what generated alert or Live IP Video feed to make a decision.
– Less in-room checks mean staff can concentrate on delivering care only when needed
– By working more efficiently and performing fewer in-room checks staff are more engaged and have more time for other duties
– Staff safeguarded as events with accusatory or aggressive residents are picked up by the system
– Fewer hospital admissions
– Reduction in challenging behaviours from residents as they are more rested.
– Peace of Mind with 24/7/365 support
– Integration with IP Cameras and other 3rd party interfaces
– Improved efficiency of working so drives ROI
– Proven record of success over many years
– Person-centred approach leads to a better level of care
– Transparency of night care – valuable data of alarms and how they are dealt with help keep track of what happens during the night.
– Better Customer Proposition – Improved resident well-being, more effective deployment of care and a better-informed organisation are strong parameters to improve the end-user decision.
– Centralised Care Model – Gives an enterprise-level solution to larger organisations with thousands of care beds being monitored by a central hub. This is the prevalent approach in Holland.
