Case study from the NHS Care City Innovation Test Bed
Published on 5th March 2019
Canary Care was used in Cluster 3 of the test bed - Carer Resilience. The Canary Care motion sensors and door sensors were placed around the home to identify deviations in the activities of a client and to send alerts to that client’s carers. For example, if the data suggests, that an external door has been left open, the client is not using the kitchen, the client is not spending the night in their bedroom, or the client has fallen etc. For more details on the test bed see the Care City website.
A case study is available for download, which describes the experience of one family who used Canary Care to help keep an eye on their elderly mother (Mary) who has severe dementia.
