Supporting Mental Health Organisations
It has been reported that the increase of mental health issues, due to Covid -19, has significantly risen over the past year, across all age groups.
One of Carebuilder’s original concepts was to help mental health organisations to reach out to individuals needing support:
+ In crisis
+ During recovery
+ On an ongoing basis
Our CareBuilder platform offers an integrated system which can be set up to develop individual support strategies incorporating appropriate medical and healthcare professionals, family, friends and volunteers.
It is designed to ensure that individuals know that wherever and whenever they are, help is at hand via online calls or self help strategies.
The system offers facilities to help individuals regain their confidence and independence by offering them ways to build their own daily routines, set up their own support network and get easy access to both essentials (eg online shopping, medication support) and well being activities (e.g. plan walks, online exercise classes).
Organisations using online support are able to monitor an individual’s progress and help them modify their programme (in real-time) accordingly to progress and needs.
The platform provides a way to maximise budgets and resources by centralising knowledge and managing capacity throughout the day/night.
Care for people with disability
Support for people with a disability often spans a range of services including healthcare, living assistance, housing management, meal planning and well-being. Together these services enable patients to live as independently as possible in a home environment, knowing they can count on help when it matters.
Property managers, service providers, care and support staff use just one mobile app to receive all alarms, alerts, planned care and support tasks and ad-hoc service requests, and to deliver and manage services in the full spectrum of customer needs and business processes:
+ Safety: personal alerts, video intercom, fire and burglar alarms.
+ Care & support: personalised responder services, video-assisted remote care & medication checks, care plan, technology-enabled care and e-Health
+ Lifestyle: news & entertainment, community portals, communication, lifestyle monitoring, social & activity plan
+ Smart home: remote controlled intercom and door access, smart lights and curtains, and adaptive furniture
+ Living assistance: give residents access to repair services and domestic help through the Client App
First line support workers use video-calling, VOIP or IP cameras integrated in the Caregiver App and the Real-Time Care Response Centre to assess the situation following an alarm or request from a client. They can then forward the request to the appropriate healthcare professional or other service professional using CareBuilder’s fast and user-friendly task management and handover functionality (including automated escalation, so a task is never left waiting for a response!). CareBuilder’s powerful remote response features enable housing & care organisations to organise themselves more efficiently.
SOL Connect works with disabled patients such as Jamie, who has severe autism spectrum disorder. Jamie received 24/7 care at home throughout his life and was hospitalised up to 15 times a year, before becoming a SOL Connect customer. Jamie now lives alone in his own home, receives 8 hours of care & support, and has not been admitted for over three years. Jamie asks for support and can even order pizza safely through the Client App if he feels like it. Jamie enjoys his independence and SOL Connect saves tens of thousands of pounds per year on care and support costs for the local authority and health insurer.
