Learning to use the Ally system is really simple. 90% of our partner Care Homes are using it without any support by the 3rd night. In fact, the only concern staff have reported is that they feel like they are caring less by going into the rooms less frequently!
“I can’t believe how easy the Ally app is to use, our staff loved using it from their very first shift.”Sue – Care Home Manager
How do alerts work?
Care home managers and staff find the app simple to use. Staff simply receive an alert, listen to it within the app, then check it off and respond.
“During the first night, we were alerted to a resident who had a fall that we would not have known about at all. Ally showed its usefulness immediately.”Night Team Carer
Unlike other acoustic monitoring technologies, Ally can be accessed by staff wherever they are in the home. Your team can get on with other tasks, safe in the knowledge that Ally will alert them if needs be.
We provide feedback if there are any staff who need a bit more prompting to use the system.
How many alerts will we get?
Alerts are not overwhelming. Staff typically deal with just 4 alerts per hour from Ally, and from this will do just 1 physical check. When you factor in the previous number of regular checks, that’s at 40% time saving for your team.
How quickly will it make a difference?
“In the first few weeks of using Ally, we’ve eliminated so many concerns.”Sue – Care Home Manager
Installation takes just half a day in a 40 bed home. Training for the team takes just 30 minutes – that’s including being introduced to the purpose of the app and practice using it.
Manager training usually takes less than 90 minutes to learn how to use the app, manage the care home accounts (for residents and staff) and review the dashboard to see how staff are using the app (e.g. speed of response).
