Beanbag Care has been designed to help the older adult maintain their
independence, enabling them to remain in their own home for longer. With a combination of in-home monitoring and quality care visits Beanbag care can help people look after their health & wellbeing.
The service user can use the tablet to keep connected to the care provider and friends & family (virtual calls). Messages are sent to the tablet to let the person know about upcoming care visits but can also be used by the care provider to send prompting messages or information about the community.
Developed by Secure Meters, Beanbag Care is an innovative suite of smart,
independent living solutions that are designed to deliver a range of benefits to local authorities, home care providers, extra sheltered housing providers and their customers.
Drawing on Secure Meters’ heritage for property technology excellence,
Beanbag Care is a technology enabled care solution designed to provide better quality care at the same cost, so that people can live in their own homes for longer, safer and with greater independence.
Beanbag Care increases the quality and efficiency of care by giving home care provides remote access to real-time, granulated data on the welfare and
satisfaction of their customers or residents. It achieves this by combining the power of web connected home sensors with smart, automated decision-
Beanbag Care services utilise a smart home system of sensors and
communication products. The system can be configured according to the
service user requirements providing flexibility and scalability. At the heart of the system is a Gateway – this unit provides a wireless link to all the in-home sensors, assimilates data, and communicates to the cloud via broadband or
GSM. The range of sensors includes motion detectors, pressure sensors,
combined temperature & humidity sensors, CO sensors and door sensors.
There is a tablet with an option to wall mount or place in a free-standing
holder – this is used to display useful information and provide video calling; it also includes an SOS button. Everything is intended for simple one touch use and was developed with input from older service users. To ensure privacy
there are NO cameras or listening devices.
The system can monitor –
1. The quality of care
2. The in-home environment
3. The wellbeing of the service user
Free mobile apps are available to support the communication. The carer
mobile app is for the field-based carers. The responder app is for family and friends.
The care provider can contact the cloud-based service via a portal that can be accessed via a standard pc or laptop. The portal provides simple, easy to use dashboards and the facility to run bespoke reports.
