Langley Lodge, located in Langley, BC and a cornerstone of the Langley community since 1974, is one of the increasing number of seniors’ homes looking to innovative technologies like Toch Sleepsense to enhance the safety and wellbeing of their residents.
Langley Lodge is running a pilot program to trial Tochtech’s award-winning Sleepsense bed sensor technology. Offering publicly funded as well as private long-term care services to 139 residents, Langley Lodge management is thrilled to be piloting the Sleepsense bed sensor. “We are always looking for innovative technologies to enhance the safety and health and wellness of our residents. The sleep data and information Sleepsense is able to provide on our residents’ sleep patterns is so valuable and information we have never previously had. This information helps us better understand some of the health and sleep challenges our residents are experiencing and will offer new insights in how we can better serve and care for them” said Lisa Samms-Maxwell, Director of Care at Langley Lodge.
Placed under the frame of the bed, Sleepsense is able to detect body movement, in and out of bed status and vital signs (heart and breathing rate). Real time alerts are then sent directly to caregivers’ smartphones or a nurse call system when a health or safety risk is identified. Sleepsense ensures care staff are constantly updated on the status of residents without having to physically check on them, and alerted on residents most in need of assistance. This new technology offers residents increased safety, especially high risk residents in Assisted Living and Long Term Care. Toch Sleepsense was the recent winner the 2020 AGE-WELL National Impact Challenge Competition. The Toch Sleepsense trial program were also launched at Fleetwood Place, Elim Village, Laurel Place and Chalmers Lodge seniors residences in BC.
