Felix Brouwershof, smart assisted living flats in the spotlight
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).
