News from Alertacall plus articles and insights on how to enhance outcomes for people with higher needs in the housing, health and social care sectors.
Alertacall are delighted to be speaking at the Homes 2021 UK event in the ExCel, London, on Tuesday 23rd November from 14:00 to 14:30. The release of the Social Housing White Paper in the depths of the pandemic means that the event provides a prime opportunity for everyone involved in the housing sector to come together for the first time in two years and share best practices.
Our wonderful team will be available for a chat on stand H636, showing you exactly how our full range of technology works, in our newly launched ‘demo suite on tour’.
The session titled, The Future of Independent Living- Introducing Digital Services in Supported Accommodation to Transform your Housing Service, will be chaired by Alertacall Director, Martin Cutbill. Martin will discuss the numerous opportunities and practicalities of introducing WiFi and other digital services to your operations and moving away from costly hardwired systems.
Chris Munday, Consultant and Ex Executive Director of Anchor Hanover brings his twenty plus years of experience as a director in social housing to the speaker session, and will discuss what he perceives the future of independent living accommodation will look like.
The session will focus on the upcoming Digital Switchover 2025, detailing what it is, the services that will be affected and the endless opportunities WiFi and digital solutions can bring in sheltered and supported housing. Benefits include lower costs and more secure and efficient services for older people, individuals with additional needs and those fleeing domestic violence. In turn, this two-way engagement with staff makes for more successful housing management.
Over 50 UK housing providers are currently benefiting from Alertacall’s housing management and digital telecare systems. The Housing proactive touchscreen devices enable repair reporting, video door entry and video calling to be readily available at the touch of a button, literally.
Our 8-inch portable touchscreen devices are easy to use. They come with a ready-made stand and a free repairs reporting app. There is no need for a WiFi connection, as each device includes built-in connectivity. There is also increased safety with our fire safety solutions, video door entry systems and first-class digital telecare products. Digital telecare can be wrist-worn and includes GPS and fall detectors. Our top of the range environmental sensors provide readings 24 hours a day and detect maintenance issues early on.
With many housing providers in the UK rethinking how their services will cope in meeting the requirements of the Social Housing White Paper or indeed the Digital Switchover due to occur in 2025, Homes 2021 is a very timely in bringing the sector together to see how best to address these issues.
The event is one not to be missed, so click here to grab your ticket. We are looking forward to meeting some of you there. Make sure to come and visit us at stand H636.
