Abbeyfield Ferring launches new cloud-based care system

Abbeyfield Ferring Society is rolling out Care Control, a new cloud-based system of care home management that allows staff to quickly record and manage all care and day-to-day activities in one place.

Reviewed and assessed by the Care Quality Commission, the approach will utilise staff time more efficiently allowing Care Assistants more time for person-centred care with residents.

Jacqui Swindells, Chief Operating Officer, for the charity said ‘We are making life easier for our care staff with a paperless system which is available for tablet, mobile or desktop PC. The electronic care plans will record all the information in real time. Our staff will be introduced to the new system through a training programme in the new technology and software. It will be used across our services including domiciliary care allowing staff to add in their annual leave and feed into payroll. Staff handovers in our residential home and out in the community will be seamless and clients’ information will remain confidential and secure.’
