Digital Care Planning and safe, secure visiting

Using technology in the care sector

At Groveland Park, we understand the importance of person-centred care, delivered by people but we are also always looking to enhance our services by using the latest the digital world has to offer if it means that our residents benefit. From digital care planning to acoustic monitoring, we strive to be at the forefront of what the technology world has to offer in our sector.

Technology in Kent care homes

Communications in care homes

Connecting people in care with their families

As we age, keeping in touch with those we love becomes more important. While our home is a hive of social activity, we understand the importance of staying in touch with loved ones – especially those who live some distance away. That is why we are always working on new ways to encourage that communication and make connecting with friends and family easier and more engaging. Follow us to keep abreast of new developments at Groveland Park.

Self-cleaning care pods

Maintaining care home visits, safely and securely

The whole world has learned a lot of important lessons during 2020’s pandemic and we were among the first care companies to implement positive changes to enable life to carry on as normally as possible for our residents and their families. Chief among our new additions is our state-of-the-art care pod – a safe, secure and self-cleaning visitation room in the grounds of the care home in which residents can still meet with their friends and family.
