  • Advanced reports engine for tracking response times, compliance reporting & resident planning, with scheduled reports and automatic forwarding to e-mail;
  • Event notification to mobile devices, IP phones, signs and pagers.

"Arial 9 was developed based on extensive consultation with assisted living providers. They told us that they needed a solution that would cover multiple use cases: not only emergency call, but wander management, access control, reporting and benchmarking, care planning and more," said Mike Webster, Senior Solutions Manager, Long Term Care and Security at STANLEY Healthcare. "We're confident that this new solution delivers the features and functionality that assisted living communities need to increase safety for residents while driving high productivity."

The Arial 9 solution delivers a number of key benefits to assisted living and other senior living organizations:

  • Increased safety for all residents: protects against distress, wandering and falls, with secondary notification of other security events such as fire alarms;
  • Improved performance: tracks response times & patterns across shifts to drive higher levels of care;
  • Higher efficiency: pushes information directly to staff for efficient workflow, and allows management of multiple systems through a single user interface;
  • Better resident experience: eliminates sound alarms, and enables residents to call for help at any time.

The Arial 9 solution is compatible with all existing emergency call solutions from STANLEY Healthcare, giving customers a cost-effective way to update their solution to the latest standard. STANLEY Healthcare's solutions are trusted by over 12,000 senior living communities, with 1,400 E-Call systems deployed.
