So, what exactly is a wander management system?

A wander management system is a security system that helps prevent residents or patients from wandering into unauthorized areas within a facility. This system is particularly useful in healthcare facilities, such as nursing homes or memory care facilities, where residents may have cognitive impairments or memory issues that could lead them to wander into potentially dangerous areas, or leave the premises.

How a Wander Management System Works.

The wander management system works by utilizing a combination of RFID (radio frequency identification) technology and monitoring sensors. Residents or patients are equipped with RFID tags that are attached to their clothing or wristbands. These tags communicate with sensors placed at throughout the facility. If a resident with a tag approaches a restricted area, such as an exit door, the system will trigger an alarm and alert staff members to the potential security breach. Not only does a wander management system help prevent residents from wandering into unauthorized areas, but it also provides peace of mind for staff members and family members. Knowing that residents are safe and secure within the facility can alleviate anxiety and stress for everyone involved.

The Need for a Wander Management System.

The need for a wander management system is clear in facilities where residents or patients may be at risk of wandering into dangerous areas. In healthcare facilities, such as nursing homes or memory care facilities, residents with cognitive impairments or memory issues may be prone to wandering. This can pose significant safety risks, both to the individual and to staff members responsible for their care.

By installing a wander management system, facilities can proactively address this issue and provide a safer environment for their residents. Not only does the system help prevent incidents of wandering, but it also allows staff members to quickly locate residents in the event that they do wander away from designated areas.

A wander management system is a valuable tool for enhancing the safety and security of residents in healthcare facilities. By working with a professional installer, such as NDC, facilities can ensure that their system is designed and installed to meet their specific needs. With our expertise and dedication to excellence, we can help clients achieve peace of mind knowing that their residents are protected and secure.
