Digital Sign in,
& Managed WiFi
Established in 1985 with the opening of Milford House, over 30 years later Milford care now operate 6 care homes across Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire.
In this time the Group has remained in the hands of the same two families and has never lost site of its aim to deliver excellent care to the local communities it serves.
Their unswerving commitment to quality care has seen Milford Care win a number of high profile regional awards, from Best Care Home-Central England and Best Care Group – Central England.
The use of technology in a care environment is changing and more and more providers are looking to harness the potential of using digitised systems to make improvements to the way they the operate and deliver care.
Adaptive IT was tasked with installing suitable Managed WiFi, Digital Signage & Digital Sign In Solutions across their entire estate of homes.
More and more devices and equipment are reliant on a wireless connection to the local network or the internet so the correct WiFi solution must be implemented.
Health and Safety & Safeguarding are particularly hot topics and the ability to know who is in the building in the event of an emergency is very important. Hard copy signing in books offer a very limited and inaccurate option and are now subject to GDPR compliance.
Up to date information for residents and staff is vital to the efficient running of a care home and traditional notice boards cannot keep pace with the requirements for content that needs to be displayed.
All homes were fully operational so extra care needed to be taken to ensure the installation kept any disruption for residents to an absolute minimum.
Adaptive IT's Solution
Ruckus Wireless Access Points were deployed throughout the building to give full and reliable coverage to all necessary areas. Dedicated SSID’s were created to allow separate network access for residents, staff and visitors as required.

It is very refreshing to work with a care provider who has a joined up approach to technology and who can not only see the value of employing tech at one site but can see how the benefit increases by using this across an estate of care homes.Jonathan White
