Using Technology to Enhance Care Packages
Rhiannon and John are a married couple living in their own home in Pembrokeshire. Both long-standing customers of the Pembrokeshire Council Telecare service, they also have a large domiciliary care package in place. This includes a combination of support from their family and formal carers. Along with daytime visits, they also receive repeated sleep-in support two consecutive nights, followed by two nights of support from their family. Although the carers live-in on the days they support, when it’s the families turn, they are nearby but not within the property. A Social Worker recently carried an annual review of Rhiannon and John’s care, who highlighted that Telecare could be better utilised to support them.
Innovative Solutions to Manage Absconding Risks
Siân was being supported with a planned move to supported living accommodation. Siân had been cared for by her mum, who had become very ill before sadly passing away. Siân has very complex learning disabilities, mental health and emotional needs, which include a diagnosis of Down’s Syndrome and Affective Disorder. These factors contributed to issues with the placement after a settling-in period, with Siân absconding among the most challenging. Find out how we worked with the services supporting her to create a brand new concept wireless bed sensor which resulted in great outcomes for Siân.
Supporting Vulnerable Adults with Learning Disabilities
The Trees Short Breaks is a 12 bedroomed care service supporting vulnerable adults with a learning disability in the community of Hinckley in Leicestershire. In November of 2020 the building had undergone a full refurbishment. CAIR’s Buzzz portable receivers were chosen as the solution to receive alerts from sensors positioned around the property.

Wigan Using Cair to Support Covid-19 Pandemic
The Covid-19 crisis has seen a lot of people and places having to adapt to support the national effort, with conference centres, theatres and even football stadiums transforming their functions to become field hospitals to support patients battling against the virus. Even a Mercure Hotel, in Wigan has found itself swapping their usual business and weekend getaway guests to be a place for rest and recuperation for patients on their way home from hospital.
