Exploring interests online

Justin and Rhys, who live in separate bungalows at Kennard Court, have new independence and discreet support thanks to a new technology system in their home. The system uses Amazon Echo devices and Ring door sensors that allow staff to regularly check on the safety of them both, increasing their independence at home.

The Ring sensors are designed to detect when a door is opened, instantly notifying the staff through Alexa. This real-time alert system provides peace of mind for both the individuals and the staff, as any unexpected or potentially risky situations can be promptly addressed.

The devices allow two-way communication, and have given Justin and Rhys the ability to speak with staff whenever they need assistance or simply wish to engage in a conversation.

 

The network of devices have not only improved the safety and wellbeing of Justin and Rhys but has also empowered them to enjoy more independence.

 

They can confidently navigate their daily lives, knowing that help is just a voice command away, while staff can fulfil their duty of care without intruding on their privacy.

 

Rhys has also embraced the use of his smartphone to access the internet, and has a good understanding of online safety. As a result he has been able to use the internet to explore his passions and interests more freely.

 

Rhys’ love for history has flourished as he now uses the internet to research historical sites before visiting them.

 

Using technology has opened up a world of possibilities for Rhys, enabling him to pursue his interests with confidence and independence.
