Guinness Care is using digital care software from Appello in its 60 new extra-care apartments in Totnes.
Residents will benefit from almost instantaneous connections to an alarm receiving centre, and will be able to take advantage of room-to-room calling which can be video enabled to help support social inclusion. Appello’s digital care infrastructure also provides easy integration with other services and the ability to connect additional devices, from tablets and smartphones to smart sensors and other connected devices, to help residents lead fully-connected and independent lives.
Robin Macintosh, head of community services, Guinness Care, said, “We want to move away from outdated analogue systems and embrace the many benefits digital offers, and after seeing Appello’s digital solution, we’re committed to only install digital care solutions in our new developments.”
Tim Barclay, CEO, Appello, said, “Not only can we provide 24/7 monitoring services to all of the residents at Guinness Care’s new development, the digital care system will offer room-to-room video calling and internet connectivity, both of which are proven to improve social inclusion. The system also supports connection to smart devices, allowing residents to enjoy the same features as their friends and family and helping them maintain and improve their wellness through the latest health and wellbeing technologies.”
