Before the first brick has been laid in the construction of today’s care homes, decisions will have already been made on the type of technology to be used to enhance the lives of those soon to be living and residing in the premises.
Set to open its doors next month, Priesty Fields, a 78-bed purpose-built nursing care home, in Congleton, Cheshire, is one of many new homes across the UK planning to implement technology that helps to deliver outstanding care and in turn, improve staff and residents’ overall quality of life.

Overall, new technologies are continually entering the social care market with a focus on improving productivity and efficiency for staff, and in turn, the health and happiness of residents, which, ultimately, is to be applauded and encouraged.
