Relatives of residents at two Bradford care homes can now view on-demand details about how their loved ones have spent their day.
Bierley Court, in Bierley, and Shakespeare Court, Barkerend, part of the Handsale Group, are using the latest Mobile Care Monitoring system to improve the efficiency and communication across the homes and to ensure the very best care for residents.
It's part of the Relatives Gateway portal, which also includes a social network for sending photos and messages.
Every member of staff at the care homes use a handheld device throughout their shift to evidence care in real-time. The information can then be accessed securely by approved relatives.
Rishi Sodha, Care Director of Handsale Care Homes, said: “Having a loved one in 24-hour care is an anxious time for families. The Relatives Gateway helps put people’s minds at rest around the care their relative receives, especially if the family do not live close.”
