Technology that works for your retirement village
Isometric attended the 2021 RVA Conference to learn more about the technology needs of retirement villages – here’s what we found.
Simple, seamless and fast ICT systems
The Isometric team attended the Retirement Village Association (RVA) Conference this year for the first time. It was an opportunity to speak with village owners, managers and other industry members and learn about their technology needs and how we can support them to bring more of it into their villages and homes.
Using tech to solve everyday problems
Technology is changing the way we live – how we connect with people and access information – and in aged care, it’s proving to be essential to the long-term wellbeing of the elderly.
A main topic at the conference was how technology can be used to solve everyday problems for residents, caregivers and staff. Here are some of the examples we discussed:
- Wireless internet and cloud-based software let staff receive calls and check residents’ records on the job, using mobile devices.
- New in-home technologies provide more entertainment options for residents, and iPads and smartphones make it easier to connect with loved ones.
- Smart air-conditioning, automatic lighting and even curtains or blinds that open and close with the touch of a button can aid residents who have limited mobility.
- Smart security, including cameras, alarms, security gates and phone systems, can provide peace of mind for managers and owners, especially in facilities with high-risk residents.
IT systems that work for everyone
In many retirement villages and rest homes, technology is often limited to a TV and DVD player. But there are ways to incorporate technology – wireless internet, iPads and smartphones – in ways that make residents’ lives easier and help staff do their jobs more effectively.
At Isometric, we’re passionate about creating ICT systems that are simple and seamless – and meet the needs of your residents, caregivers and staff.
We start by making sure you always have fast, secure and reliable internet access. Then we design systems, install hardware and set up your devices. We also provide ongoing support to ensure your systems keep your retirement village or rest home running smoothly.
We’re here to help you get the best out of your IT – get in touch with the team at Isometric today.
