Chubb Community Care Provides Knowsley Housing Trust with Assisted Living Solution
“We needed reliable technology and a service provider who fully understood how the assisted living solution could work best for this specific development.”
Chubb Community Care has designed and installed an assisted living solution for Knowsley Housing Trust’s (KHT) Bluebell Park Apartments to enhance the safety and security of residents, helping them live independently in their own homes. Chubb, a leading provider of solutions to support independent living, is a part of Chubb Fire & Security, a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp.
The chosen solution for the Knowsley-based sheltered housing development was the Chubb Care System, which enables residents to communicate quickly, clearly and securely with on-site and remote staff, as well as off-site monitoring centres. The installation includes Chubb intruder detection, access control and video calling technology.
Chubb Community Care worked closely with the team at KHT from design through to installation and aftercare, to ensure the specific requirements of its residents were met and the systems seamlessly interfaced with other building management facilities.
“We needed reliable technology and a service provider who fully understood how the assisted living solution could work best for this specific development. Our goal is to in deliver the optimum care to our residents and Chubb has supported us in this,” said Andrea Murray, Extra Care Building Manager at KHT.
David Hammond, general manager for Chubb Community Care, commented: “The Chubb Care System is reliable, flexible and extremely user friendly. We know it is a valuable support to housing managers who can have the confidence that the system will work well for both residents and staff.”
KHT is a housing association providing high-quality homes at affordable rents. In business since 2002, KHT, now part of the First Ark Group, provides homes for around 27,000 people in Knowsley.
