What is it?
How can Connected Care solutions help support people to remain living independently for longer? Can it increase quality of life, enhance digital and social inclusion and support friends and family? How might it support the provision of formal services?
To help answer these questions and more, Tunstall Healthcare has developed Mary’s VIP Home – a real home in a sheltered housing scheme, based on Communicall Vi IP, which has been developed to showcase how existing mainstream connected solutions and services can help with daily practical challenges.
Mary is a fictional character living in a real sheltered housing scheme in Yorkshire. She recently lost her husband after a long illness and her family live away. She is turning 80 this year and looks forward to her first Great Grandchild being born. She and her family face the challenges that so many others face, such as staying in touch, taking care of her health, ensuring she stays warm at home, has a good social life and feels safe and secure.
Her home provides a unique venue for discovering what is possible today, giving people an opportunity to explore how connected products and services can be used in an assisted living environment. It will also help us to better understand the needs of a variety of stakeholders including potential users, their families and friends and health, housing and social care professionals.
Join our digital journey
Digital technology is an increasing part of everyone’s lives, at home and at work. BT has announced that by 2025 everyone will have moved from analogue to IP voice telephone services – the UK’s switch to digital is inevitable and imminent.
Digital technology represents a huge opportunity to improve quality of life, increasing the choices available to people to remain active and thrive in their own homes as they age.
Join us on the digital journey.
As the world moves towards an ever more digital future, Tunstall aims to lead the change by realising the potential of technology to bring patients, users, social care, healthcare and housing providers closer, significantly enhancing the cost-effectiveness and quality of care provided in the home.
