The Alzheimer's Show 2017

We were proud to have been part of this year's The Alzheimer's Show

With this being our first Alzheimer’s show, we were pleased to have met so many people over the course of the two days. We are proud to be part of The Alzheimer’s Show network, which aims to deliver advice and support to people living with and caring for others with Alzheimer's. Being our first time at the event, we hadn’t anticipated so many people visiting our stand – in fact, with over 1000 visitors to our stand we deemed it a success.

Our Teletech experts were extremely busy on the Friday opening of the show - speaking with healthcare professionals and other organisations who provide services to those living with the disease. Our Enterprise Partnership team also took the opportunity to listen to many of the interesting talks  and visit other stands – especially those who are also developing  assistive technology solutions. Of course, our very own telecare specialist and Business Growth Manager Jamie Wyre delivered his own presentation to a packed out crowd to highlight the emerging technology that we are working hard to keep us at the forefront of independent living solutions.

Our interactive smart home was a hit, as it clearly demonstrated how using a mixture of sensors and alarms around the home can help personalise our 24/7 service for different care needs. The sensors which connec to our monitoring centre automatically raise an alarm, putting emergency calls through to our friendly staff who are on hand to help and reassure.

We found the second day of the show was focused a lot more around the individuals, especially those who were acting as unpaid carers for their loved ones. It was our live demonstrations of our Emergency Support and GPS locators which drew the crowds in. Many visitors were looking for technology that can support people out the home and give carers peace of mind. 

Our ability to not only help locate, but speak to people in an easy to use device really seemed to resonate well with those who have had instances where the person they care for has left the home – often at night or wearing inappropriate clothing.

It was also on the second day of the show that we had the opportunity to meet Palwinder Bhamra and his wife. Mr Bhamra shared a very personal and touching story of how he cared for his mother, who lived with Alzheimer's disease. In recognition of his work, Mr. Bhamra has been awarded a Carers UK National Carers Award. He now continues to volunteer to help others in his community. It’s insights like these, and meeting people like Mr Bhamra that our friendly team of professionals would otherwise miss without attending such great platforms as the Alzheimer's Show.
