  • Increasing Staff Efficiency and Peace of Mind through Safety Technology: Loretto Health and Rehab selected Accutech’s ResidentGuard as an integrated call/wander system that would allow staff to expeditiously respond to wander and elopement events.
  • Life Safety Systems Improve Staff Workflow, Response Times, and Resident Experience: During the pandemic, Birmingham Green looked for ways to improve its dated safety systems and help residents in isolation. Birmingham Green installed a modern wireless nurse call system from Symtech Solutions, which included wall-mounted stations and wearable pendants for the residents, along with an elopement prevention system. It also offered tablets to every resident for entertainment, community updates, and personal use, which entertained residents when only minimal contact was safe.
  • Larksfield Place Reduces Falls with Injury by 80% using Artificial Intelligence: Therapists at Larksfield Place Retirement Communities (LFP) employed VirtuSense VSTBalance, a fall-risk assessment tool that uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine vision to identify deficits in balance, gait, and function.
  • Law Enforcement Use of Technology to Proactively Respond to Wandering: Using grant funding from the Department of Justice, Sumter County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) is using new technology to find people who wander from The Villages in Florida. Families can contact SCSO and receive a free GPS enabled watch, Theora Connect™, for their loved one living with Alzheimer’s/dementia and set up the Theora Link™ smartphone app. The monitoring dashboard, Theora ESP™, allows SCSO and primary caregivers to know location in case of a wander. The family caregiver can call the smartwatch, and it will automatically answer for the wearer so that the caregiver and wearer can speak.
