Lighting the way

The Haven Care Home in Colchester- one of Beaucare Medical Ltds clients, is full of bright ideas. Recently, the home hit national media with its incredible ideas to help residents reach the bathroom in the middle of the night and reduce falls.

By placing luminous foot prints on the floors, glow in the dark light switches, LED walking frames and a LED lit toilet bowl, The Haven managed to reduce 9 falls at night in January and February 20016 night to just 1 fall in January and February this year.

Every minute in the UK 6 elderly people suffer a fall. Due to the success at The Haven, many other homes in the region have adopted the luminous lit idea.
