Currant Care

NHS Problem

Each year, 1.6 million elderly people experience at least one fall, leading to a direct cost of approximately £2.3 billion to the NHS. A notable shortage of healthcare personnel further compounds this issue, estimated at around 100,000 open vacancies, with one of the highest burnout rates among NHS staff, with reports indicating up to 44% experiencing work-related stress. Traditional care models, which rely heavily on reactive physical monitoring, are proving to be unstainable. 

The Solution

Designed to address these issues head-on, Currant Care’s newest platform, Sensora, is a revolutionary technology for elderly care, leveraging non-invasive ambient monitoring technology and AI to enhance the safety and well-being of the elderly. Unlike traditional care methods, Sensora provides continuous, real-time monitoring of elderly residents in care facilities, detecting falls, monitoring mobility, and analysing behavioural patterns to identify potential health risks before they escalate. This proactive approach enables timely interventions, significantly reducing the incidence of falls and associated healthcare costs. Minimising the need for constant physical supervision alleviates the burden on healthcare staff, addressing issues such as caregiver burnout and staffing shortages. 


The Sensora platform has made a tangible impact on elderly care through paid pilots, significantly enhancing the care of 84 seniors. The innovation has demonstrated:

  • Increased emergency response times 
  • Improved patient satisfaction 
  • Recognition of a clear need for such technology in senior care 

Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with notable achievements including: 

  • 100% of clients expanding their trials to include more seniors 
  • Strong initial feedback and usability praise 

Currant Care is actively gathering quantitative evidence to further validate its effectiveness. Early signs are promising, showing potential to revolutionise elderly care with its innovative approach to monitoring and emergency response.
