One Kenton Place honours and respects the past while looking forward to the future. Cutting edge technologies and ongoing innovations ensure that our care is of the highest quality and standards.
We employ a ‘Versus Monitoring System’ which allows us to visually and graphically locate and identify any individual within time and space who is in the building. This enhancement allows for quicker response times when a resident may require extra assistance. This system ensures that our residents can freely and safely explore their environment. Personal badges along with pull cords in washrooms and lounges provides the resident and staff member a means to signal that assistance is required. Through analytics, we have the ability to run reports and evaluate how and where a person spends time during the day. We can refine an individual’s care plan based on the data to include their preferred activities and programs.
Doorways within the residence are auto-closing and in-line with fire code regulations. Passages through the various areas of the home are overseen by computer controlled mag locks installed on doors. Programmable key fobs and swipe cards provide selective access for staff, families and visitors to main exits and stairwells, maintaining the residents’ freedom to walk and explore throughout the interior of the home.
Design features within the residence such as floor specific colour schemes, self-timing faucets and fixtures made clearly distinguishable from each other have all been utilized for the person living with Alzheimer’s and dementia in mind.
One Kenton Place seeks out researchers and scientists who are actively investigating and developing novel technologies geared to seniors. Specific to Alzheimer’s and dementia, we are working in conjunction with a research team and technology from WinterLight Labs Inc. that have developed robotics and artificial intelligence systems for application in a home environment. Residents will be able to interact in activities with the robot, who will in turn respond to their feedback. This technology also allows for the analysis of speech patterns and can signal caregivers when subtle changes may be an indication of disease progression. Other advancements to be introduced include visual and auditory cueing systems.
We actively pursue the formation of linkages and partnerships with other organizations who specialize in the development of technology specifically designed to enhance the care and lives of individuals living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. The future is now and it is here at One Kenton Place.
