CLB Acoustic Monitoring
Shaw Healthcare are one of the UK’s leading health and social care providers and have a spread of residential services across the country which are often run in partnership with Councils and Local Authorities.
They primarily deliver elderly care services and dependent on location offer nursing, dementia, supported living, rehabilitation, day care, respite and specialist care for more complex needs such as mental health, Acquired Brain Injuries, Learning Disabilities and Physical Disabilities.
Adaptive IT were tasked with retro fitting the CLB Acoustic Monitoring and intelligent Nurse Call solution for their Sycamore Lodge scheme in North Somerset.
Provision needed to be made for all of the 78 resident bedrooms – Dementia sufferers needed to be able to call for assistance without using traditional Nurse Call.
The solution needed to be installed in the fully functioning and occupied care environment so extra care and project management were required.
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

Close working with the care management team ensured that the installation ran smoothly and kept disruption to a minimum.
Installing the solution into an occupied home like this one means the operational benefits for staff and wellbeing benefits for residents can be seen and enjoyed immediately!Jonathan White
