Carlton Senior Living has expanded its partnership with RF Technologies to provide wireless safety solutions for residents.

A significant reason the Concord, CA-based senior living operator selected RFT as its vendor of choice was RFT’s responsiveness and the level of detail provided before system implementation, according to Carlton Vice President of Technology Tuan Nguyen.

“RFT provides the highest level of detail as to the scope of work in its initial proposal and system design, through to installation, implementation and post-installation support,” Nguyen said.

Carlton is upgrading and replacing its older wired nurse call system with the goal of a company-wide move to a wireless system, which can be integrated with other wireless-based technology throughout a facility (such as wireless smoke detectors, motion detectors, mobile devices, digital walkie talkies and more), potentially leading to better response times and improved care.

“RFT’s system provides a safe environment for the residents and is the tool that staff rely on to work most efficiently,” said Executive Director Tracey Ingleman.

Carlton and RFT have been working together for approximately five years and said the partnership will be beneficial to both companies.

“Carlton is leading the way in northern California providing the highest-quality care via the latest technology trends and RFT is the quintessential partner in helping them do that with our innovative wireless safety and security solutions,” said RFT VP of Enterprise Accounts Joleen Simonetti.
