Nourish provide technology revolutionising service at Optivo care homes

Technology revolutionising service at Optivo care homes 

Housing association Optivo is revolutionising services at its care homes with a new digital care management tool that hooks up to computers and smartphones.

Called Nourish, the technology allows staff to record every aspect of each resident’s care plan at their residences in Ealing, London.

Data regarding everything from activities and interactions to food and fluid intake can be input. And alerts are sent if there are any changes – such as weight loss.

Optivo is one of the first housing associations to adopt this technology and it is hoped that if it proves a success, it can be rolled out in other schemes – including extra care and sheltered accommodation.
