Smart sensor technology provides caregivers vital information about each resident, adding an enhanced level of care, as well as peace of mind for families. This unobtrusive system of smart sensors, placed strategically throughout residents’ apartments, monitors activity around the clock. With the information provided, caregivers can identify changes in activity and take measures to ensure resident well-being, as well as respond immediately to potentially urgent situations.
If, for example, sensors determine that a resident is making frequent trips to the bathroom, staff may recommend a lab test to detect a urinary tract infection. Information provided by the sensors allows staff to check in more effectively. Alerts, notifications and reports assist in monitoring the well-being of each resident and respond promptly in the event that something out of the ordinary happens.
Smart sensors are strategically placed throughout the apartment
Residents go about their lives and normal activity routine, coming and going as they please, unaware that the sensors are inconspicuously monitoring to help keep them secure
Meanwhile, smart sensors transmit data to the server 24/7
The smart sensor software “learns” residents’ normal daily activity patterns and generates reports based on what has been learned
The system can detect changes, such as sleeplessness or increased trips to the bathroom, that may indicate an emerging health issue
The system alerts staff when something out of the ordinary happens
This allows our caregiving team to deliver prompt and proactive care to prevent more serious issues
