Elderly Care

Elderly care is care for seniors at their home or in an institution. It comprises care for demented people, but also palliative care and help in their homes. For elderly it is important to function in an independent way. We divide elderly care in three areas: home care, nursing homes and assisted living. Foston Europe offers innovative, technologic systems that can be easily integrated into existing systems, in every area of elderly care.

Mental Health Care

Mental Health Care is applying their knowledge and research to better a person’s mental health and their quality of life. The most important intention of Foston Europe during the collaboration with a Mental Health Care Institution, is applying technology in a way that makes the employees feel safe. When an unsafe situation occurs, our alarm system let’s every employee know where and when the situation is taking place, so measures can be made as fast as possible. Next to that, with the dashboard system Qlik Sense, Foston ensures nurses in a mental health care facility have a clear sight of every data of the patients and data that was imported by other nurses.

Hospitals

In the target group Hospitals, Foston mainly integrates appeal systems, but also alarm systems that are being so accurately adjusted that the nursing office is getting a buzzer when a patient is showing different behavior. Because of the platform, patients can be monitored and for that, personal, and more efficient care can take place. Besides that, Foston can also realize the integration of a dashboard, that is useful to come to new insights and big amounts of data of health care systems can be realized.

Noises disturb people in healthcare environments: “It can impact their recovery”

As many people age, they develop a common hearing loss condition, called Presbycusis, in which hearing gradually deteriorates and certain sounds become distorted. But it´s not just music that can be painful for older ears, little noises at a hospital environment can also be disturbing for the patients. For hospitals, it´s hard to change little noises that just exist, but a recent study shows that even small changes can make a big impact on hospital noise levels. In the research they also upgraded patient rooms and the central nursing station with smart monitors which helped cut down on unnecessary alarms. Foston Europe is able to integrate those typical nursecall systems where the alert goes to a panel with lights or a buzzer and derive those noisy systems to a DECT phone, smartphone app or screen in a way that the sound is not disturbing any patients.
