Aged Care Sector
Aged care facilities incorporates a lot of Audio Visual Devices to make the residents life easier. As we age, our ability to hear and see can diminish. This means that we can install specific devices to make their life easier. This could be anything from hearing assistance (Hearing Loops) or large digital displays that help them to remember up coming events, what's on the menu at the cafeteria. We also install the fun side of things like audio systems for dance halls, personal movie theaters ect.
Proper Audio Visual Technologies Can Make Life Easier
A hearing loop (sometimes called an audio induction loop) is a special type of sound system for use by people with hearing aids. The hearing loop consists of a microphone to pick up the spoken word; an amplifier which processes the signal which is then sent through the final piece; the loop cable, a wire placed around the perimeter of a specific area.
Digital signage in a retirement village can be very useful for it's residents. It can show them upcoming events, medication reminders as well as showing visitors the map of the premises. You can utilise digital signage in many ways and the great thing about this is that it can all be scheduled to suit your vision and marketing needs.
IP PAGING SYSTEMS
A paging system is crucial in an aged care facility. No different from a hospital, you may need to contact specific staff members or call on certain residents or make announcements. The benefit of an IP paging system is its flexibility. You can easily create zones and adjust your paging needs easily. You can also make this paging system act as an alarm system as well.
Some areas of the facility will require background music. Music has the ability to reduce stress and anxiety and this can be a very important aspect of a retirement village. NZAV can install control systems that make it super simple for the carers to use without the need of any technological knowledge. If they can push a button, then can use the system.
A very popular aspect of a retirement village is a Cinema Room. This gives the residents the ability to watch movies in a cinema environment without the need of going to an overcrowded cinema in the city. The residents can also choose what they want to watch. They may want to play some movies that remind them of a special time in their life.
Studies have shown that dancing can be very therapeutic and can bring a lot of joy to the residents. This improves mood and increases their immune response. A proper sound system is crucial in providing this experience and background music systems are very different from a proper sound system. Get in touch for more information.
