Real Value for care homes

Ally’s Resident Monitor uses sensors and AI to monitor care home residents when alone in their rooms during the night. The system alerts staff instantly when residents require care, freeing staff from time-consuming regular checks that often wake up sleeping residents.

With the help of electronic care planning software and with support from NHS Digital, we were able to demonstrate that Ally releases up to forty percent of staff time during the night, reduces resident falls up to fifty five percent and decreases hospital visits up to twenty percent.

What People Say

According to the CQC:

“Acoustic monitoring enabled staff to respond more promptly and appropriately to people’s support needs during the night.”

– State of Health Care and Adult Social Care In England 2016/17

“Since we installed Ally I feel so much more confident at night knowing that my staff now assist residents the moment they need it. We have seen night-time falls drop by over 50%”

Elaine Banks

Manager, Bradbury Court

“The welfare and safety of our residents is our key priority at all times. The ability to monitor remotely day and night is a huge benefit to our teams who are under additional pressure due to COVID-19.”

Steve Allen

CEO, Friends of the Elderly

“Using Ally has been transformative for our night-time care. My night staff are no longer taken away from residents to do regular checks, provide care only when needed, and have so much more knowledge of our residents’ needs, are much happier and more engaged.”

Susan Graham

Manager, Harleston House

How It Works

Ally uses a wifi-connected monitor, plugged into each resident’s room, to detect changes in their sleep through sound and motion during the night. Care staff simply switch it on for each resident at bedtime.

Our AI technology learns to differentiate between resident activity and normal background signals to detect when residents are calling for help, are awake and active, unusually restless, or in discomfort. Care staff simply check alerts on a smartphone, review sensor data, listen to audio samples, and assess whether residents need their assistance.

Get an ROI Estimate

One of the challenges for any care home when deciding to deploy new technology is the costs vs benefits received, or return on investment (ROI).
