Staying Connected with loved ones

We understand how important it is to stay connected with your loved ones, and we can assist you by using other options such as phone calls, FaceTime link ups and Skype.

The Bush Compass

As a provider of rural and remote aged care services, we understand the importance of connecting individuals to their local communities, and providing access to vital health, wellbeing and social services. We have invested heavily in IT infrastructure to ensure we are able to deliver safe and reliable services to those we value most – our residents, our clients and our staff.

TeleHealth

Video-conferencing is one of the main ways in which we deliver Telehealth. This improves your access to healthcare services, and is ideal for people who live in regional, rural and remote areas.

Our Telehealth services use information and communications technologies (ICTs) to deliver health services and transmit health information over both long and short distances, including voice, data, images and information.

Project Tanami®

Project Tanami® saw the acquisition of Apple iPads (hence the name ‘Tanami’) for the three specific care strategies that focus on wellness and reablement to support our remote Clients.

Protecting your independence Project Tanami® specifically aims at providing programmes to Clients in the comfort of their own homes, focusing on reablement, restorative and wellness programmes, and the continuance of independence.

Wifi & Supporting Technology

Our residential facilities boast free WiFi services, enabling our Residents to stay connected with their friends & families.

Our fully integrated WiFi network is used for resident and clinical data, enables our residents and clients to access to the internet, and includes a state-of-the-art WiFi Nurse Call system and integrated telephones, which brings it all together.

Home Monitoring

McLean Care® partners with Tunstall Healthcare to offer a personal medical alarm solution, including a range of assistive technology and activity sensors to support the independent lifestyles of our residents, which will help keep you active, and as independent as possible.

Hector VR

Hector VR aims to provide drivers with important information to help them make an informed decision about their driving in a completely private, safe and non-intrusive environment. With the support of trained staff, participants will become immersed in the experience of ‘driving’ a virtual vehicle through popular locations in Inverell.

Intelligent Home Solutions For Independent Living

Funded by the Australian Government, the project ‘Intelligent Home Solutions for Independent Living’ has implemented individually tailored off-the-shelf Smart Home technologies designed to support the individualised needs and wants of CHSP participants to assist them to remain living independently in their own home for longer.

The smart device trial and research activities were conducted between November 2019 and June 2020. The aims of this project were to:
– Understand how smart home devices can support older people in improving wellness outcomes and living independently in the home.
– Evaluate the benefits, opportunities and challengesof incorporating smart home devices into older people’s homes and lives.
– Understand the usability challenges, expectations, hopes and anxieties older people have of smart home devices in assisting them to live more independently and improve their wellness and wellbeing.

Support through technology – in the Community

McLean Care® have invested heavily in portable tablet technology, allowing staff to deliver wellness and reablement services that support our remote Clients through the use of face-to-face exercise and education sessions through video-conferencing technology.
