    CareRooms create brand new care and bed capacity by utilising existing spaces in the community. We build this creating a bespoke safeguarding platform that protects and onboards their Hosts, monitors their Guests recovery during the stay, controls the money flow and much more. This new respite space allows the community to support its local care system and promote independence in the individual who is recovering. This turns the lonely care dependent individuals into independent active members of their community.. how? By giving them a homely environment with companionship and guided to as healthy lifestyle for them as possible.

    Light has multiple ‘non-visual’ effects including directly improving alertness and cognitive function, reducing depression and improving sleep, and maintaining synchronisation of the circadian (24-hour) clock. These responses are mediated primarily by the photopigment melanopsin, located in the ganglion cell layer of the eye, and is different from the rods and cones we use to see. Melanopsin is most sensitive to short-wavelength (blue) light (peak ~480 nm). We and others have shown that enhancing exposure to blue-enriched white light can improve alertness and cognition and that minimizing blue light exposure before sleep increases sleepiness and promotes sleep onset. In care homes, these interventions have been shown to cause a slowing of cognitive decline and functional limitations, reduce depression, improve sleep and reduce agitation and anxiety. Together, these data provide strong evidence of the benefits of improved lighting on health and safety in patients in residential care.

The future of healthcare is community care - and there are four key areas care providers are bolstering to transform health. Join this electrifying Care Show kick off talk to understand the new emerging model of healthcare, how to get there and the ways it’s going to impact your social care business - and the lives of those you care for - for the better.
