Presentation 3 – Using TEC to transform care homes: making care person-centred, not room-based

Traditional nurse call systems are designed to suit buildings, rather than to meet the needs of the people living and working in them. Tunstall’s new Carecom nurse call system is designed for modern care delivery, using wireless technology, smart pendants, and a carers’ app to enable care to be person-centred, rather than room-centred. Fast communication, insightful information and personalised telecare results in more efficient care and improved quality of life.
