Providing a charity with telecare and assistive technology services
The client and their brief – Providing them with telecare and security sytems
MCCH is a charity that supports people with learning disabilities, autism or mental health needs. They work across London and the Southeast. Holly Lodge is a supported living scheme for adults with learning disabilities or autism. MCCH asked us to install telecare and security systems across the facilities.
The Icom approach
Icom Tele-Support has worked in the tele-healthcare industry for a few years. We have a different approach regarding telecare and offer innovative solutions.
Icom has provided the development with state-of-the-art assistive technology and security systems, including:
– movement sensors,
– flood sensors,
– infra-red beams,
– water management kits,
– further telecare enabling technologies.
Each unit is controlled by biometric readers (fingerprint scanners) in addition to an emergency FOB key (wireless remote to arm and disarm security systems) and an override key system. Icom was able to inter-connect and manage this project through the Holly Lodge telephone systems, thereby reducing disturbance to residents.
Such state-of-the-art facilities not only provide a safe, secure environment for residents, carers and staff, but they also provide valuable, long reaching experiences which will enable residents to live in more mainstream housing. This project was perfectly in line with Holly Lodge manifesto:
“The goal for Holly Lodge is to increase the independence of people living there through the design and technology that will give them control over their environment and the opportunity to safely spend time on their own, if they wish.”
