Technology – in touch with tomorrow

… Staying independent, staying safe …

Technologies have enhanced and enabled the ability of people to live independently and safely.

All residents in our St Andrews Independent Living Units have a 24-hr emergency call system in place and assistance is only a matter of activating a wrist or pendant alarm to alert the response centre that they need help.

In 2010, St Andrews offered this service to the wider community. Emergency call systems can be installed in the private homes of people requiring this extra security option, giving them a further degree of independence and reassurance.

Computer access is available in all our rooms, enhancing our residents’ quality of life through being able to communicate with their families via email or Skype. Interactive learning or activities are also made possible with this option.

Stay  in  touch  with  your  friends  and  relatives  at  our  residential  facility  by  emailing  Leisure and Lifestyle with stories and photos. Staff can print these for your resident and reply on their behalf.

St  Andrews  provides  iPad  and  android  tablets  for  loan  to  residents.  If  you  are  thinking  of purchasing  a  tablet  for  your  loved  one,  why  not  ask  Leisure  and  Lifestyle  to try  before  you buy.

St Andrews  is  looking at  introducing Netflix, Foxtel or Austar so residents can access them for their pleasure.
