Wellhaven column: Wellhaven is safe and secure

Wellhaven is a place where tenants feel comfortable and safe. To ensure this level of safety, Wellhaven uses two different alarms systems: eNeighbor by Healthsense and TransAlarm.

The eNeighbor system, which is set up through the internet, connects the system sensors and devices.

Wellhaven tenants are each given a pendant to wear. When the button on the pendant is pressed, a caregiver receives a call.

"The call will report to the caregiver the name of the owner of the pendant and their last known location," explained Wellhaven Senior Living Manager Beth Ann Schultz, LPN. "It is very easy to use for both team members and tenants."

Tenants also have the option of having eNeighbor sensors in their apartments. The sensors track the tenant and alert caregivers to abnormal behavior or inactivity. In the public areas of Wellhaven, there are pull alarms which work to alert team members if help is needed. This is very beneficial if a guest or senior center member needs assistance.

TransAlarm is mostly used in Wellhaven for the fire alarm and security system, but it can also be used like eNeighbor when necessary. Both systems work 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For more information or to set up a tour of Wellhaven, contact us at 715-426-4646.
