Alcove. Pioneering independent living. Go on, #growolddisgracefully

We love our customers

We are really enjoying the video calls. It’s made such a BIG difference. It was my mum who was very dubious at first. The thought of new technology and people coming into her flat really scared her. Like many people as they get older anything that is technical is received with “I don't want or need that.” I knew once mum got the Connect up and running it would provide her with comfort and security that she could contact us. I cannot emphasise enough the peace of mind it has given me as well as I know I can instantly see mum via video.

I would be a poster girl for Alcove. I noticed mum’s condition was accelerating once I could see what was going on when I wasn’t there. I could check every day what was going on which was very reassuring. Alcove just gives you a lot more visibility and a bit more confidence that things will be alright even if you’re not there.

My favourite thing about Alcove is the Connect. Being able to see people and speak to them is really good. My button makes me feel a bit safer walking around the flat because I worry about what would happen if I fall. I like that the carers that come to see me have to tap in because sometimes they are new people I have never met before. I always give feedback to the Alcove team so that they can help as many people as possible.

MSH@Home is very happy to endorse and recommend the Alcove assistive technology system. It allows us to track and monitor the reliability of our caring staffing in the field, as well as demonstrating that we never miss a call when it comes to CQC inspections. It reduces client cost, because they may be able to reduce the number of care visits required in the day, but still have the security and peace of mind that their welfare is being monitored and they can remain living independently in the comfort of their own home.
