Review of technological opportunities for Care Centres

To commission a report up to the value of £20,000, to be funded from the capital budget for Hillside as stated on the capital programme, to review the technology in the Hillside Care Centre and advise what short, medium and long term technological solutions can be put in place to achieve the council’s vision as set out in the County Plan.

The County Plan 2020-2024 sets out the below,

“Technology is another key component for promoting and supporting wellbeing, particularly for those with high levels of need. Technology can be very liberating and empowering where it can improve independence without relying on formal and often intrusive levels of care. This includes such things as prompts to take medication, voice-activated response services when crisis occurs (such as a fall), health and wellbeing apps etc. Over the coming years, we will continue to develop our technology strategies and make further investments in this important, exciting and fast moving area of service transformation”
