The surveillance systems throughout the interior and exterior areas of the building monitor the movement of each resident ensuring their safety. Out of respect for privacy bedrooms are not monitored.
Falls are common among the elderly so we have safeguards to prevent or detect possible accidents. Handrails are located along corridor walls and non-skid flooring helps prevent falls. Motion sensors in each room provide another layer of safety along with sensors on beds and wheelchairs if necessary. These extra layers of protection allow staff to be notified immediately if a resident should fall. Call buttons are handily placed in each room in the event a staff person is needed or if there is an emergency.
Other safety precautions include an extensive sprinkler system throughout the building. All rooms including bathroom and closets have sprinklers as well as the common areas. In the event of a power failure, Eden Memory Care has a backup generator.
