Following a highly successful pilot run at Inspīr Carnegie Hill, Maplewood at Stony Hill, a dedicated memory care community in Bethel, CT, has installed AUGi in all 84 of their residential apartments.  

The 6-month, 33-unit pilot study at Inspīr Carnegie Hill, a luxury senior living community operated by Maplewood Senior Living on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, prevented over 400 falls. Read more about the case study here. 

The system learns residents’ sleep patterns, mobility issues and general room activity, and successfully prompted over 400 documented staff interventions in high-fall-risk situations throughout the test period. AUGi had a commendable 100% voluntary opt-in rate among residents, families and responsible parties, as well as a 99% staff adoption rate. During the pilot program, staff used the AUGi mobile app to check on assigned residents an average of 22 times per shift.

“AUGi’s ability to monitor, triage, and alert staff to critical safety events has been a revolutionary tool for our caregivers,” said Brian Geyser, Maplewood’s Vice President of Health & Wellness, who coordinated the pilot program at Inspīr Carnegie Hill.

Stony Hill at Maplewood has opted to install AUGi to help promote independence, help prevent injury, and instill peace of mind in residents living with early, mid-stage, and late-stage Alzheimer’s disease and dementia and their families.

The implementation of Inspiren’s cutting-edge technology is emblematic of their unwavering commitment to innovation and excellence. In 2021, the community earned Purple Flag accreditation, a prestigious accolade for communities meeting the highest standards of dementia care.
