For long-term care and senior living communities, the health and safety of residents is paramount. Unfortunately, many residents in these communities suffer from Alzheimer’s, dementia or other conditions that leave them susceptible to wander out of a secure area.
A wander management system is an excellent way to reduce liability, improve quality of care, and increase overall security and safety of residents.
Integration with your community’s existing systems is essential for an effective wander management system. Most vendors will offer some integrations, but examine closely to see if the solution has all the integration options you need. Consider your:
Nurse call system
Electronic access control (EAC)
Pagers, beepers or any other mobile devices carried
As you evaluate options, opt for a solution that has custom con guration options, so you can ensure it meets your needs today and in the future. Installing a new system at your facility should simplify your process, not add complexity.
