Rest Home Supported Care.

For supported Residents living with Care at hand, the daily routines revolve around communal mealtimes and conection with other supported residents. Staff provide a duty of care with knockup calls in the morning and domestic assistance. The resident can call for assistance via push button or pendant but for 90% of the day and night, the resident lives a self contained life.

The resident is in supported care to enable a fast reaction from staff to potential mishaps such as falls, night excursions, bed occupancy.

But currently the trigger for help has to be actioned by the resident.

Bell pushes, floormats have traditionally been a means of assistance but are seen to be only 50% effective.  Mats move, can trip the resident at night. Bell push may be on the wall in the main room but often forgotten or effectively out of each. The same applies to attached devices to potentially detect a fall. Charging and wearing are not rigidly observed. Pendants are not popular and not always worn or charged

In this day and age, there is a need to deploy something that works alongside and is non dependent on resident activation.

Anatomy of a fall. Staff had not activated alerts so this tells a story

Anatomy of a fall. Staff had not activated alerts so this tells a story

Something that is discrete but monitoring 24/7 across all rooms in the residents domain

Something that can trigger an emergency call to staff Nurse if resident is comatose on the floor or unable to move. Maybe lying abed through injury or illness

MimoCare introduces Predictive care, a new mark forward in Care

  • Frailty is not something that happens suddenly.

  • It is one of the 10 stages of ageing starting with a drop in activity levels, failures to get out of bed as usual. All this potentially leading to a serious fall. The morning knockup routines to check if residents Ok can be a thing of the past. Know about a fall when it happens not at 8’oclock next morning  when it might be too late.

  • The same technology can now detect reducing activity levels and warn physiotherapists and others that remedial exercising is needed to minimise the chance of a fall.

  • We call it Predictive care. One fall is a precursor to more and ultimately hospitalisation. PrEdictive Care can put the wheels in motion early to get activity levels up

  • Predictive care can also log and comment on increasing bathroom visits. Early awareness of this means painful and lengthy hospitalisation is avoided as can the enormous cost of bed provision and treatment facilites in hospital

Predictive care.

A step in the right direction ?

Proactive, not Reactive
