Independence in Supported Living
Independence, choice and control
Just Roaming is a personalised, real-time monitoring and alert system, which allows adults with learning disabilities and autism to live independently and safely within supported living homes.
Just Roaming uses sensors installed in a property, to send live alerts to a mobile phone app. A roaming support team can oversee and respond to a group of flats or homes within a closed geographical area.
Alerts can be highly personalised and responses are generally quicker compared to a sleep-in. The individual has more independence, choice and control, safe in the knowledge there is support when they need it.
How it works
It's all about the individual
Alerts are personalised to the needs of the individual. Sensors are selected from a range of door, bed, activity and sound sensors and the system will integrate with a wide range of other telecare and digital devices so that all alerts can be managed on one system.
The management dashboard captures the full history of alerts and responses, and provides a detailed oversight for managers. Activity charts show where an individual has spent their time, and the interaction between alerts, staff response and its effect.
A better understanding helps teams to continually review and adjust the support, making incremental improvements in independence and playing to the strengths of each person.
For some people this is life-changing. Individuals who have never spent time alone have been able to demonstrate their capability to choose how to spend their personal time.
Just Roaming can:
Provide personalised, targeted support
Improve response times to incidents
Plan for complex support needs
Reassure families & monitor well-being on an on-going basis
