Demenia Case Study for Warrington Borough Council
Enid is a 66 year old female who is suffering from severe dementia and has had a recent stroke. She is living in her owner occupied bungalow, being supported by her daughter and son who take turns to stay with her day and night.
The main worries are that Enid gets out of her armchair whenever she is left alone, which is resulting in frequent falls so the family is being unable to have any sort of respite from her. Also during the night Enid gets out of bed and has had several falls. This therefore means that her family are getting very little sleep because of the fear of Enid getting up and them not hearing her.
Warrington Carecall Community Services conducted a telecare assessment and recommended the Chubb Carer Alert, Pressure on sensor and pressure mat, fitted by the bed, and Pressure off sensor and pressure mat, fitted on armchair which was fitted.
The pressure on sensor raises an alarm to the Carer Alert as soon as Enid puts her legs out of bed onto the pressure mat next to the bed, so enabling her family to get to her before she stands up and puts herself at risk of falling and the pressure off sensor raises an alarm to the Carer Alert as soon as Enid lifts her weight off the seat so reducing Enid’s chance of falling.
This equipment was installed in February 2008, and during this time there have been no further falls as a result of Enid getting out of bed or off her chair.
Enid’s daughter states that she feels their lives have much improved since the equipment was installed. They can now go out into the garden or into the kitchen without worrying that Enid will get out of her chair without them knowing. And at night they are getting more quality sleep knowing that the Carer Alert will wake them if Enid attempts to get out of bed.
