Just Checking helps to focus on the most effective combination of staff and technology to empower service users to be more independent.
It is a powerful assessment tool for commissioners and care providers who are working together to reshape services.
Activity monitoring gives you a better understanding of when support is required, and confirms the optimum level. It shows the effect of staff activity, encouraging them to focus on enablement.
What about nights? Do we really need waking night staff or could we move to sleep-in? If nights make low demands on staff, can we manage the remaining risks with telecare and roving night staff? Just Checking will provide objective evidence on which to make changes and justify budgets.
