Tunstall Carecom takes a new approach to nurse call systems for residential and nursing care homes. It uses wireless and digital technology to enable care to be tailored to the individual, ensuring the delivery of care is more efficient, flexible and responsive. The system moves beyond traditional, fixed callpoints to a wireless system better suited to the demands of modern care delivery, allowing care to become person-centred, rather than room-centred. It enables care to be delivered where and when it is needed most, alerting staff not just to events, but letting them know the nature of the event (e.g. fall, seizure, exit from a room or property), who needs assistance and their location. Carecom is also discreet, alerting a dedicated, efficient response from a nomiated carer, avoiding disruption to other occupants and creating a more peaceful environment.
The majority of the system is wireless. Receivers and beacons are placed around the building, which interact with smart pendants worn by residents. Caregivers are able to manage the system on a number of devices, including a mobile app.
