C-TEC’s innovative life-safety systems are now in operation at a revolutionary new dementia care home.

Ty Cariad in Abergele, North Wales, is committed to providing residents with exceptionally high levels of dementia care in an environment designed to evoke comforting memories of their past lives. The centre is split into four ‘houses’, all of which feature cleverly designed interiors, gardens and outdoor areas.

Quantec, C-TEC’s powerful addressable call system, is at the heart of all call communication at the home. Staff carry pagers to alert them should a resident or member of staff require emergency assistance. During the night, the system is programmed to monitor movement in the bedrooms via carefully positioned sensors which alert staff should a resident exit the bed area.

Said Mark Bailey, the Managing Director of Fairways Care Ltd, which owns the home: “We pride ourselves on delivering exceptional dementia care at Ty Cariad and Quantec ensures we maintain excellent levels of communication between staff and residents at all times.”

Also in operation is a SigTEL disabled refuge system and a powerful ZFP addressable fire panel, specially configured to transmit alert messages to individual staff pagers.
