First of its kind bed alarm and sleep monitoring technology implemented by Elim Village Retirement Community

Elim Village Retirement Community’s investment in Toch Sleepsense enables good and timely healthcare decision for residents.

Tochtech Technologies is delighted to announce an agreement with Elim Village Retirement Community to equip its long term care neighbourhoods with Toch Sleepsense, Tochtech’s award winning sleep sensor and bed-exit technology. Elim Village’s decision to install Sleepsense starting in its Behavioural Support Transition Neighbourhoods (BSTN) is the first phase of its investment in Sleepsense.

“We are thrilled to be implementing Sleepsense in our Behavioral Support Transition Neighborhoods.  During the test pilot we saw how Sleepsense not only enhances quality of life for residents by eliminating noise compared to conventional bed alarms, but also has other capabilities in monitoring and capturing data that help in making good and timely healthcare decisions for our residents” said Jennifer Ladesma, Director of Care, Elim Village Care Society.

Toch Sleepsense enables care staff to be automatically notified when a senior gets out of bed, has not returned to bed or in the event of a medical emergency while in bed. Sleepsense bed exit alerts will be integrated with the nurse call as well as other systems used by Elim Village. Additionally, sleep quality data of each resident captured will enable care givers to adjust care plans and add interventions to address sleep issues.

“We are delighted by the decision of Elim Village to invest in the technology, and are pleased to have been able to prove the value of Sleepsense to the leadership team and the care staff during the extensive pilot process” said Jessica Yang, CEO of Tochtech.

Having been through an exhaustive testing period of the Sleepsense technology, installation at the Behavioral Support Transition Neighborhoods (BSTN) at Elim Village will begin immediately.

Elim Village Retirement Community’s investment in Tochtech’s Sleepsense technology follows investments by Trellis Seniors and Langley Lodge in BC, Canada, Australian Unity in Australia and an increasing number of long term care centres in Canada, Australia, UK and Japan that have committed to this first of its kind technology.

About Elim Village Retirement Community: Elim Village is a premier retirement community located on 25 acres of community living amenities, offering the full spectrum of senor living, from independent through to full care.  The goal of Elim Village is that as care needs increase, most residents, including husbands and wives, would be able to stay in the community. In the early 1990s, a small group of Christians studying the book of James began discussing how faith could be demonstrated in practical terms. They began to develop a vision of a Christian retirement community where Independent Living, Assisted Living and Full Care would all be available on one site. They formed the Elim Foundation and gathered seed money for early development costs. Soon after, they established Elim Housing Society. With the help of 70 committed investors, the society took the significant step of buying land in Surrey, BC. The first set of duplexes and a condo building went up in 2001. Elim Village Retirement Community has two locations – Elim Village Fleetwood and Elim Village Garrison Crossing. For more information, visit
