Strawberry Gardens

Keeping our tenants connected


Adaptive Assistive Technology

At Mersten, we strive to equip our properties with the most up to date technologies to ensure the right balance of safety, privacy and independence for Supported Living tenants.

For our 6 bedroom bungalow in Morecambe, we worked with assistive technology experts Tunstall Healthcare UK to fit out the property with solutions for each tenant to live independently, with the reassurance that help is on hand if they need it.

Telecare sensors such as epilepsy sensors, fall detectors and bed occupancy sensors can be chosen according to the needs of the individual, which will raise an alert on a mobile phone carried by an onsite care worker if they detect an event. Service users can also request help by pressing a wrist or neck-wornpendant from anywhere in the property or garden.

This property will be primarily used for mental health step down accommodation. The property is bright and spacious, with ample space for tenants to relax. Externally there is a paved and enclosed patio garden backing onto the floor to ceiling window doors of the rear living room.

The property is also protected by an access control system, which is linked to Communicall Vi. Staff can access the property using a keypad, and a PAC system also allows access via a secure fob system, giving easy access to authorised individuals but keeping Heysham secure.
