What is the ROOMforLIFE?
The Able Label is proud to be involved in a new, forward thinking project by Biz4Age, who are partnering with Kent County Council, along with various other local SME business like us. The project is the first of its kind in the UK, and has been developed alongside partners in the Netherlands.
Two rooms within a Kent-based care home have become ‘living laboratories’. They aim to explore the needs of the volunteers staying within the rooms to enable them to remain as independent as possible. Innovative solutions derived from these needs are then provided by local businesses, it allows businesses to check that their products have met the needs of users.
How The Able Label’s Involved
For anyone who enters the room and finds dressing difficult, they will be able to trial The Able Label clothing. We will then gain invaluable feedback to continue to enhance our range of clothing.
Another local businesses involved in the project are our friends at Centra, specialists in care and support services tailored to customer needs. They will be providing telecare, out-of-hours and lone worker monitoring services for the home.
The Able Label are very proud to have been asked to take part in this as the aim like ours, is to improve quality of life and support independent living. Predominantly for the county's senior residents, the project will complete with an action plan for healthy ageing.
We look forward to sharing further feedback from the project as it develops.
