CLB Acoustic Monitoring
And Intelligent Nurse Call
Whiteley Village is set in 225 acres of Surrey woodland. The Village contains 262 almshouses, a care home and extra care apartments for nearly 500 older people and is managed by the registered charity the Whiteley Homes Trust.
The care village was established in 1917 and is one of the longest operating residential care locations in the country – their new care hub was named after Eliza Palmer who was the original resident over a hundred years ago.
Adaptive IT were tasked with installing the CLB Acoustic Monitoring and intelligent Nurse Call solution for their £10.5M, 30 bed specialist new build. This also included coverage for wireless pendants for residents.
Provision needed to be made for all of the 30 resident bedrooms including en-suites, Communal Areas, Assisted Bathrooms & WC’s.
Adaptive IT's Solution
A single CLB Acoustic Monitoring Module was installed into each resident bedroom – this monitors sounds in a room and when a concerning noise is heard an alert is sent to a central station.
The solution helps raise levels of care and resident wellbeing – here are some operational examples,
– Preventing Falls as residents are reached before bed exit
– Allowing better sleep cycles as interventions in rooms are only when necessary
– Abuse is prevented as aggression is detected
– Privacy and Dignity are protected with less in room interactions

Nurse Call alerts generated by the system we distributed discretely via App to mobile handsets carried by staff. This enables staff to efficiently answer calls on the move and residents are not disturbed by loud audible call bells especially at night.
CLB wireless receivers were installed throughout the premises to enable connection to wireless pendants for residents to call for assistance if necessary.
It is an honour for us to be involved with a project for such an established name in the care sector. The new build will definitely benefit the residents and instrumental in this will be our solutions we have provided. This will create a great mixture of their heritage and history coupled with modern technologyJonathan White
