Berkley Care Group is known for its innovative approach to the sector. They provide luxury living for residents as well as exceptional care, which is recognised by industry bodies. Having worked with several homes in the group already GHM was appointed to install a new communications solution at their new care home in Chesham. This consist of installing a care home telephone system, care home WiFi network, smartphones and Nexus system to integrate with nursecall.

Berkley Care Home - A Case StudyThe Solution

GHM recommended a Unify telephone system – a world-leading brand which provides the home with a future-proof solution. SIP Trunk connections were used for voice calls, with a backup PSTN should connectivity be temporarily lost. The resident telephone requirement is met by providing IP extensions within the phone system, which removed the need for a direct BT line (avoiding install and on-going rental fees). GHM Care also installed a WiFi network, thus providing data and smartphone connectivity for staff, along with internet connectivity for residents and visitors.
