We have developed Mary’s VIP Home to show how Connected Care can be used to enable people to remain living independently at home.
How can Connected Care Solutions help support people to remain living independently for longer? Can it increase quality of life, enhance digital and social inclusion and support friends and family? How might it support the provision of formal services?
To help answer these questions and more, Tunstall Healthcare has developed Mary’s VIP Home – a real home in a sheltered housing scheme, based on Communicall Vi IP, which has been developed to showcase how existing mainstream connected solutions and services can help with daily practical challenges.
Take a look at our video introducting Mary's VIP Home.
Mary is a fictional character living in a real sheltered housing scheme in Yorkshire. She recently lost her husband after a long illness and her family live away. She is turning 80 this year and looks forward to her first Great Grandchild being born. She and her family face the challenges that so many others face, such as staying in touch, taking care of her health, ensuring she stays warm at home, has a good social life and feels safe and secure.
Her home provides a unique venue for discovering what is possible today, giving people an opportunity to explore how connected products and services can be used in an assisted living environment. It will also help us to better understand the needs of a variety of stakeholders including potential users, their families and friends and health, housing and social care professionals.
Find out how to visit Mary’s VIP Home and join the discussion to be part of shaping the future today.
