Oaklands’ Directors Named Finalists in Stars of Social Care Awards

Posted on 16 May 2024

We are thrilled to share that our Directors, Samir and Anish Patel, have been selected as finalists for the Stars of Social Care Awards!

Celebrating Innovation

Samir and Anish Patel are finalists for the Technology and Innovation Award, and we couldn’t be prouder. As leaders of our team, they have always been at the forefront of innovation. They introduced digital individualised care plans into our home and implemented the revolutionary night-time monitoring system, Ally Acoustic, as well as a fully automated medication management system.

Well-Deserved Achievement

The technology used within the home has significantly improved the lives of residents and staff. For example, the introduction of the revolutionary Ally Acoustic system has been instrumental in preventing the spread of COVID.  

This system utilises AI to learn the normal sounds and behaviours in the room, alerting carers to any unusual activity to prevent falls. By identifying an abnormal coughing pattern, Oaklands’ staff were able to detect a potential COVID case early.

Commenting on the recent nomination, Care Home Manager, Nicola Ray, said; “We are incredibly proud of Samir and Anish Patel for their dedication to innovation and commitment to providing exceptional care. Join us in congratulating them on this remarkable achievement and good luck.”

Stay tuned to hear more from the Stars of Social Care Awards!
