Technology-enabled care services provider Astraline and care consultancy Thoughts Become Things have joined forces to strengthen the services care providers offer across the UK.
The partners aim to put technology at the heart of care provision, to bring services to more people who need support.
Sue Jones, CEO at Thoughts Become Things, said: “Our new partnership with Astraline has supported many of the care businesses we work with to monitor and maintain the health and wellbeing of their clients. This means more people are able to support themselves within their homes and have the confidence to go about their day.”
Technology-enabled care is often a life-critical service, and research has shown that these services can reduce hospital admissions and discharges, and prevent, or potentially delay, a move into residential care.
Astraline has introduced a range of technology that enables customers to receive 24-hour care should they need it; including personal alarms and activity and passive monitoring sensors, among other smart-tech offerings.
Lisa Brumwell, Operations Director at Astraline, said: “Investing in technology-enabled care will mean care providers can offer a better-quality service that supports customers to live independently.
“We are proud to be in partnership with Thoughts Become Things, to support the delivery of technology-enabled care solutions. Our services can be personalised to better fit with an individual’s personal circumstances and enable management teams to deliver efficient care and support.”
