The use acoustic monitoring, circadian lighting and electronic care planning at The Beeches care home has been featured in a national project to inspire and increase the use of technology-enabled care (TEC).
The Hubble Project, managed by the National Care Forum and funded by NHS Digital, features Kim Crowe, Chief Executive, managers and staff sharing their experience of planning and implementing TEC.
As part of the project, Parkhaven Trust hosted a series of virtual visits for other care managers to The Beeches, and now NCF has published films, detailed information packs, specifications and useful templates and guides to help others to plan their own TEC journey.
Kim Crowe Chief Executive at Parkhaven Trust said:
“Our aim with the Hubble Project is to inspire other care providers to embrace digital technology in their own care settings in order to improve people’s lives. We found a whole host of benefits for our clients with the use of the newest technologies and we want to share that with others.
‘We’re always asking ourselves ‘what will make people’s lives better’ and it’s this that drives us to continue pushing the boundaries of innovation in care to ensure that every day is well lived.”
