Held at the NEC arena in Birmingham, the Care & Dementia Show spanned two full days and was attended by thousands of representatives from all areas of the Care industry, allowing them to discover the latest products and technologies available to the Care sector.
Adaptive IT manned Stand K72 on behalf of CLB to exhibit their Acoustic Monitoring system. By non-intrusively listening to sleeping residents, the system can trigger an alert when the sound level in a room exceeds individually set thresholds. This enables staff to swiftly respond to residents in need of care. Continuous monitoring replaces routine in-room checks, so peacefully sleeping residents are not disturbed and staff are free to focus on this whose distress has triggered the alert.
The event also provides the opportunity to listen to guest speakers from within the industry, one of whom was Ed Russell, Operations Director from WCS. WCS is a not-for-profit care organisation and have recently installed the CLB Acoustic Monitoring System at Drovers House, with a view to roll it out across their other new and older care homes.
Ed Russell championed the installation of Acoustic Monitoring, and views it as the catalyst in their recent success in gaining an ‘Outstanding’ rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
You can read all about the Acoustic Monitoring installation at WCS in their full Case Study, along with quotes from Ed Russell himself.
The Care & Dementia Show was a great success, and we were delighted to network with so many Care representatives, all passionately dedicated to improving the quality of care using modern technologies.
