Resident safety and wander management solution introduced

Royal Philips has introduced CarePoint 5.0, a resident safety and wander management solution.

Philips' senior living solutions help button contains AutoAlert technology, the company said.

Now UL2560 certified, CarePoint “has been designed to abide by specific product safety standards that include providing seniors with audible and visual cues to confirm an alert has been sent, complying with UL standards and providing greater peace of mind for seniors in need of help.”

The system is flexible, and a new design of its wireless receivers includes the 7000 Series AutoAlert automatic fall detection technology.

"CarePoint 5.0 is a truly unique system that allows senior living communities to support their best practices, protocols and management needs in an ever evolving market – showcasing Philips's all-encompassing approach to improve care," said Marcia Conrad-Miller, the company's senior director of product management, home monitoring.
