Smart technology is becoming increasingly important in the healthcare industry. This is certainly true for residential elderly care and more specifically for assisted-living housing projects in which this vulnerable group lives without constant supervision. ZorgAndersTV paid a visit to Residence Felix Brouwershof, where IP Building and Nextel have created “smart assisted living homes”.
Residence Felix Brouwershof is a prestigious residential project operated by Zorgbedrijf Antwerpen situated in the heart of Antwerp’s Onze-Lieve-Vrouw-Waver, an area in the municipality of Sint-Katelijne-Waver. The residence, constructed by Cornerstones comprises 69 assisted living homes, of which 67 have a terrace and/or garden, spread over 2 buildings that enclose a cosy courtyard.

In this Residence the residents have a tablet with touchscreen at their disposal, from which they can use and manage all functions in the flat (lighting, heating, sunscreens, etc.) in a very easy way. The intelligent emergency call system is also part of the whole package.
ZorgAndersTv interviewed Kris Pensaert (CEO IP Building), Joël Schols (Business Director Healthcare & Hospitality Nextel), Annemieke Van Glabeke (Sales and Operations Cornerstones) and Joeri De Ren (Director Customer services, Sales and Growth of the Zorgbedrijf Antwerp).
