Expert Topic Series - Tech-Enabled Care
Just as technology has become part of everyday life, Technology-Enabled Care has also become more acceptable and established within social care.
As we embrace specialised technology within the sector, the increase in usage means that employers and staff need to be aware of what types of technology-enabled care is available and how it can be used effectively to transform the way we deliver care.
In this series, we will look at the importance of technology in order to provide the best care within the industry.
Join our fantastic speakers, including Stuart Barclay, UK Sales Director for Vayyar Care to learn about the latest technology helping us to provide the best care, including touchless fall detection.
Meet the speakers!
Counting the Cost: Why Care Homes Can’t Afford Falls
This no-holds-barred webinar investigates the true impact of falls in UK care homes. From the physical and psychological consequences for residents to the organisational effects on operators, Vayyar Care’s Stuart Barclay will explore the hidden costs of every incident, and why most solutions are falling short. He’ll also bring you up to speed on the technology that’s transforming falls management from the ground up.
You’ll learn all about:
- The latest research into fall risk assessment
- How falls damage staff morale, causing high turnover and loss of precious tribal knowledge
- How care homes can now integrate instant, fully automatic fall detection
- How sensor fusion and emerging ecosystems enable personalised, predictive care

Stuart has a decades-long track record in the development, deployment and use of Technology Enabled Care (TEC) to support both people’s desire to live independently and to manage risk in various care settings.
