Hills Telecare System
It is a self learning product that improves the way people live in their home environments. It’s patient centric model, and embraces the measures and systems around the patient to enable them to carry on living more independently
It takes approximately one month to learn the elderly’s life style patterns including how long they spend in each room in the house. For instance if the client stays too long in a room the monitor will signal an issue which can be looked into.
Understanding the patterns of daily living results in greater understanding of what is occurring in the home. It means we can develop more comprehensive care plans with the client and their family.
Another scenario is that daily routine changes the fridge is now longer opened as frequently or not opened in the afternoons. This could mean a decline in cognitive ability and therefore represent a need to amend the care plan.
It’s an innovative way of monitoring people which enables proactive measures to be implemented to keep people safer and reduce health risks.
