if so, overside the system and warm to 22 deg.. therefore preventing the individual sitting in a cold room with the effect of hypothermia and a spell in hospital not only costing thousands but bringing anguish and uncertainty to those close to them. We want to revolutionise this, our partners Velocity RDT openly say they are ‘disruptors’ because they see what is going on, look holistically and intervene with technology along with skills to solve.
Go back to the senior in their home for a moment, what’s the cost of moving the heating up from 17deg to 22deg for a night in their home? £10 versus £2000 to send an ambulance, have two or three nights stay in hospital? it’s a no brainer, yet we need the willingness, the can do attitude, the zest across multiple organisations to achieve this. We can, we are trying, we are moving things along to ensure that whatever part of a home, it’s covered, monitored, controlled to enhance the quality of the person’s home.. the old saying goes an ‘englishman’s home is his castle’. We need to have a fit and proper saying that ‘affordable smart technology in a home can transform it into a palace’… and why not!?
