News & Case Studies
It has been a busy few weeks for GHM’s engineers, always adhering to strict Covid guidelines of course. It's always great seeing a home looking so stunning on completion. Here is the beautiful Elsyng House, part of Oakland Care in Enfield, where a phone system, WiFi & our Nexus solution was installed in a Covid safe environment.
Last year, we shared a BBC news report showing an innovative way one of our customers is keeping family visits possible through the pandemic, in a Covid-secure environment. As well as assisting residents to communicate via tablets connecting to the WiFi, Hamberley Care Homes have gone a step further and set-up ‘Visitation Suites’. The suite has a separate external entrance, pre-temperature checks and health screening, plus a rigid cleaning process between visits. Once inside the suite, a clear screen from floor to ceiling keeps the resident safe, with GHM supplying hands-free desk phones on both sides. The set-up allows families to have a good old catch-up as they would normally without the need for specialist equipment. Simple yet effective communication solutions make Covid restrictions a little easier to cope with in these challenging times. And to prove that modern technology doesn’t always need to be complicated, Hamberley were delighted with the retro style GPO handsets GHM installed in Reception phone boxes. Those of us of a certain age miss those rotary dials to make calls, now possible again at Hamberley Care Homes.

Data from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) with BT Openreach shows that 7,000 care homes in England are without adequate Internet connections. Only a third of the sector is fully digital, with the remaining two-thirds either entirely paper-based or using a mix of paper and digital. This is despite the UN defining internet access as a human right in 2016.
At present there is much emphasis on technology playing a greater role in care homes. There is no doubt that Covid-19 has placed additional strain on the sector. We agree with a recent report by Barclays, in which they state their vision for care homes combines technology with humanity, leveraging the very best digital solutions to deliver care.
