Housing & Care 21 has launched its first digital system in a care home and will no longer install analogue systems across its estate.
Housing & Care 21 is working on transforming its care homes and retirement housing communities by installing digital systems to improve care for older people.
While the housing and care industry still largely operates on analogue systems, the provider has decided to take a different route.
Eighteen months ago, Housing & Care 21 – a private provider of retirement housing and care services for older people – began working with Appello, a supplier of technology-enabled care services. And around five months ago, one of its sites, Walton Court, went live with a digital system.
"It's time to for the sector to get to grips with a digital world" - Tony Tench, Housing & Care 21
