Broadway Lodge thrilled to be able to offer proactive resident care with Toch Sleepsense bed sensor technology

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Broadway Lodge, a 114-bedroom care home located just outside Granville Island in Vancouver, is one of the increasing number of seniors’ homes looking to innovative technologies like Toch Sleepsense to enhance the safety and wellbeing of their residents.

 

Tochtech is thrilled to be working with Broadway Lodge on a pilot program to trial Tochtech’s award-winning Sleepsense bed sensor technology.  Two weeks into the trial and Broadway Lodge management is already seeing the benefits of the system which enables them to be proactive with care for residents.  “We are always looking for innovative technologies to enhance the safety and health and wellness of our residents. The sleep data and information Sleepsense is able to provide on our residents’ sleep patterns is so valuable and information we have never previously had. This information helps us better understand some of the health and sleep challenges our residents are experiencing and allows us  to be proactive in how we can better serve and care for them. Providing 21st Century care continues to inform our practice and shape our vision. At Broadway Lodge we are committed to our mission of ‘excellence in care’ and we feel Sleepsense can play a role in helping us achieve this”, says Rosemary Dunn, Assistant Executive Director at Broadway Lodge.

 

Placed under the frame of the bed, Sleepsense is able to detect body movement, in and out of bed status and vital signs (heart and breathing rate). Real time alerts are then sent directly to caregivers’ smartphones or a nurse call system when a health or safety risk is identified. Sleepsense ensures care staff are constantly updated on the status of residents without having to physically check on them, and alerted on residents most in need of assistance. This new technology offers residents increased safety, especially high risk residents in Assisted Living and Long Term Care. Toch Sleepsense was the recent winner the 2020 AGE-WELL National Impact Challenge Competition.

 

Senior living providers interested in participating in the Sleepsense pilot program can contact Tochtech at 1-800-360-1286 or info@tochtech.com

Some 2020 highlights for Tochtech include winning the 2020 AGEWELL National Competition with our latest Toch Sleepsense bed sensor and the validation of this new technology with a number of pilots at care homes throughout BC. This year also saw us expand our partnerships with a number of local partners that include, SeniorAdvocate.ca and Age Friendly Business ,and increase our global reach in Australia and New Zealand. 2020 has seen our business in China progress with the establishment of a joint venture with a local enterprise and the formation of a wholly owned subsidiary.
