Technology is now an integral part of the aged care industry & ecare supplies wellness kiosks to retirement villages all over New Zealand with regional staff supporting villages in the lower North Island, Christchurch, Bay of Plenty & Auckland all the way through to the far north.
ecare offers villages a free 30 day trial to allow your residents time to get to know the system & let their feedback guide the process. Their experience will let you know whether they found the system simple & easy to use, if they shared their data with their GP, what the feedback was from their GP, how often they collected data, if they used the quick reference health websites, brain exercises, watched streamed programs or listened to podcasts. Please refer to our testimonials for an insight into our current registered users thoughts on ecare.
ecare will individually train your residents & staff to ensure everyone is confident with the system. ecare prides itself on the relationships it has developed with clients & residents, offering supportive, empathetic, smiling staff who always have a solution on hand.
“Sonja has been instrumental in the roll out of our ecare system. Sonja has taken our residents through the system at their own pace & at a time that works for them. We couldn’t have achieved such a successful roll out across our villages without Sonja’s support and energy”. Sarah Bate Metlifecare Operations Manager.
ecare works with retirement villages that are focused on independent living, with no health services offered on-site. The ecare system offers these independent villages an important wellness aspect & fills this gap for these types of villages. We also work with fully serviced villages who have registered nurses, wellness clinic’s & hospital level care on-site. Some facilities do face challenges balancing nursing staff with numbers & demands of residents & delivering a cost effective solution. ecare can assist by being an independent wellness station for residents to visit whenever they like.
The ecare system has also been installed into the individual residents homes on -site to increase connectivity & communication between staff & residents, to identify residents who are starting to fall, to bring the world into the homes of bed bound residents, to help residents who have come home from the hospital & need to be monitored, moved at different times, ensure they are moving around their home at required times during the day, to make sure they are out of their beds in the morning.
