Retirement development invests in new connected care technology
PegasusLife’s new Malt Yard development has revolutionised the concept of retirement living, creating desirable ‘homes for life’ with innovative connected care solutions.
The developer aims to provide people in retirement with aspirational housing that is futureproofed to suit their active and sociable lives and provide extra support in the long-term. PegasusLife is using advanced connected care services and digital platforms from Tunstall Healthcare to offer residents a secure, lifetime home that can adapt to their changing needs.
As part of the development, PegasusLife has avoided more traditional communication and support systems, which are based on speech modules and pull cords, in favour of Tunstall’s Communicall Vi IP; an easy to use, connected care system that provides ‘behind the scenes’ reassurance.
The device offers a touchscreen contemporary phone and easy internet access in the first instance, whilst also supporting the introduction of additional aids such as telecare, apps and video if required. The service is designed to ensure that residents feel safe and secure in their homes, with added security measures such as integrated video door entry systems and social alarm functionality.
Denzil Matthew, Technical Director at PegasusLife said: “Communicall Vi IP is a perfect fit for us. Our developments are all about aspiration, and creating places that people want to live in, not need to move to. The Tunstall system gives us a stylish, unobtrusive means of providing security and a platform to support our homeowners’ lifestyles as they change over time.”
Tony Walker, Business Development Director said: “It is great that PegasusLife plans to introduce Communicall Vi IP to additional schemes in the future to provide even more residents.”
