Kettering Residents Benefit from 'Sparkle' Treatment Thanks to Kettering Borough Council and Tunstall Healthcare

TunstallKettering Borough Council and Tunstall Healthcare are working together to futureproof ten sheltered housing schemes using connected care solutions as part of the Sparkle project. The project is a five year programme that involves improving sheltered housing schemes across the borough. The council is using tailored connected care solutions to remove constraints on connectivity and enable residents to benefit from smart technology in a safe and secure environment.

The renovation includes complete redecoration of communal areas including corridors, entrances and lounges with new carpets and lighting, in addition to a new integrated communications platform from Tunstall. Harry Potter House and The Lawns - which is the borough's largest site - will be the first schemes to be given the Sparkle treatment in 2016.

The council is using Tunstall’s Communicall Vi which is an easy to use system that enables residents to communicate with staff and get help in an emergency. It is designed to be secure and robust to ensure residents feel safe in their homes, allowing them to have the freedom and ability to adapt their homes to meet their changing needs. It also provides a platform for telecare sensors, such as smoke, flood and fall detectors to help staff deliver better care and residents to feel safe and independent.

John Conway, Head of Housing at Kettering Borough Council, said: "Over the next five years the Sparkle project will bring major improvements to all of our ten sheltered housing schemes across the Borough."

Cllr James Burton, Kettering Borough Council’s Portfolio Holder for Housing, said: "We're delighted to be giving the 'Sparkle' treatment to our sheltered housing schemes to improve safety, security and comfort, whilst supporting better care for our residents."

John Barklamb, Regional Sales Director for Tunstall said: "It is great that Kettering Borough Council has chosen to invest in new technology that will ensure their sheltered housing schemes are fit for purpose for years to come."
