Oaklands Win National Care Award

Posted on 3 July 2024

We’re thrilled to announce our Directors, Samir and Anish Patel, have won the national Stars of Social Care’s ‘Technology and Innovation’ Award.

We are so proud that Samir and Anish have been recognised for being at the forefront of innovation and outstanding contributions to the care sector. Samir and Anish have always championed innovative technology to improve the wellbeing and safety of our residents and have been using person-centred software for over 10 years.

We’re very fortunate that Anish is a technology specialist, with a degree in Computer Engineering, and Samir, who shares the same passion for embracing technology in the care sector, has introduced several groundbreaking technologies at Oaklands. With Ally Acoustic, in particular, using AI to learn the normal sounds and behaviours in the room and alerts carers to any unusual activity, including someone getting out of bed, to prevent falls. We are delighted that our incredible team were able to use this to identify an abnormal coughing pattern and detect a potential COVID case during the night, successfully preventing the spread of COVID throughout the home.

Samir and Anish were crowned as winners at the sensational award ceremony, hosted by ITV This Morning’s presenter Josie Gibson and held at The Marriott Regents Park in London and we couldn’t be prouder.

On winning the prestigious national award, Oaklands’ Director, Samir Patel, said: “My brother Anish and I are deeply humbled and immensely proud to have won the Technology and Innovation Award at the Stars of Social Care 2024. Our mission has always been to push the boundaries of social care through technological advancements, to enhance the wellbeing and safety of residents while delivering outstanding person-centred care.

“We are incredibly grateful to our supportive community and team. This award is not just a win for us, but for everyone who strives to make a difference in the lives of those we care for.”
