Warden Call monitoring for ECH

Dan Monks 25/10/18 SHOP@ forum


My organisation, Bristol Charities, is in the process of completing the development of a 60 unit Extra Care Housing site in Bristol. I am going through the process of tying up some of the details and was hoping some members may be able to give me some advice or share experiences around the need for emergency call monitoring for this type of housing.

My question is basically do any of you feel a remote monitoring centre for a warden call system is useful or practicable considering there will be 24/7 attendance in site from the care team?

I wondering about a 'belt and braces' approach and was hoping some of you may be able to share your experiences. any help you can offer would be gratefully received.

Thanks in advance

What form does the 24/7 care take? Do the team regularly check up on all of the client group? How often? What is your interpretation of "belt and braces"? As a potential client of accommodation such as yours I would be looking around and asking how likely am I to be missed if I was taken ill or had a fall and how easily can I reach some form of alarm if I needed assistance. So - why not ask your client group what they would like to see and act on that?
