AI-Powered Safety for Assisted Living Centers

As the aging population grows, the need for enhanced safety measures in assisted living centers becomes increasingly crucial. Falls, elopement, and other incidents pose significant health risks to residents, fears for their families, and financial burdens to care facilities. IntelliSee, a revolutionary AI-driven safety platform, offers a solution that not only improves resident safety but also reduces risk and operational costs for assisted living facilities. This comprehensive guide explores how IntelliSee can transform safety protocols in assisted living centers

Approximately 1 in 10 falls in assisted living results in a serious injury, such as a fracture or head trauma.

IntelliSee is a sophisticated AI platform designed to enhance the safety of residents in assisted living centers. What sets IntelliSee apart is its variety of detection types, which are continuously trained and improved using real-world videos and frames. This process allows IntelliSee to scan and analyze thousands of frames daily, constantly refining its awareness and responsiveness to potential hazards.

Continuous Learning and Adaptation

  1. Daily Updates: IntelliSee’s algorithm receives daily updates with new data from real-world environments, ensuring it remains at the forefront of AI technology.
  2. Real-Time Analysis: The system scans video frames in real-time to detect potential risks such as residents on the verge of falling or unsafe conditions like wet floors or obstructions.
  3. Immediate Alerts: When IntelliSee identifies a risk, it sends immediate alerts to caregivers, allowing for swift intervention and potentially preventing injuries.

Use Cases for IntelliSee in Assisted Living Centers

Fall Detection and Prevention

Falls are a leading cause of injury among older adults, with one in four older adults experiencing a fall each year, according to the CDC. IntelliSee’s real-time monitoring capabilities can detect both falls and the common cause of falls like liquids on the floor. By sending immediate alerts to caregivers, IntelliSee enables quick assistance, which can significantly reduce the likelihood and severity of injuries.

Elopement and Trespassing Prevention

IntelliSee also offers valuable features for preventing elopement and trespassing, particularly for residents with dementia who may wander into restricted areas or attempt to leave the facility. With IntelliSee, caregivers can monitor residents’ movements and receive alerts if someone enters an unsafe zone or exits the building. This capability helps ensure residents’ safety while preserving their dignity and independence. This same capability can alert staff to a potential trespassing situation.  No organization is immune from challenges like theft, vandalism, and assault, and assisted living facilities are no exception.

Environmental Safety and Hazard Detection

IntelliSee enhances environmental safety by identifying hazards such as spills, leaks, and other risks that could lead to falls and damage. By addressing these hazards promptly, facilities can maintain a safer environment for their residents.

The Financial Impact of Fall-Related Injuries

The financial implications of falls in assisted living centers are substantial. According to the National Council on Aging, falls among older adults cost the U.S. healthcare system over $50 billion annually. For assisted living centers, these costs can include medical expenses, legal fees, and increased insurance premiums. By reducing the incidence of falls and other injuries, IntelliSee helps facilities save on these costs while improving the overall quality of care.

Embracing Technology for a Safer Future

The integration of AI technology like IntelliSee into assisted living centers is a crucial step toward improving resident safety and reducing costs. As the system continues to learn and evolve, its ability to detect and respond to potential risks will only improve, providing even greater protection for residents.
