Tympa Health gives care resident ears some TLC

London-based provider TLC Care is rolling out Tympa Health’s portable, all-in-one hearing health assessment device to all eight of its care homes after a successful trial.

The Tympa system enables residents to undergo digital otoscopy, microsuction wax removal and a hearing screener all in the comfort of the care home.

TLC team members deliver the service so the resident already knows and trusts that person, and is happy to undergo an assessment.

Furthermore, residents can receive this care from anywhere within the home, whether that be from an armchair, a wheelchair, or in bed.

It is even possible to send images and video of a resident’s ear directly to a GP, who is then able to prescribe directly, without the need to assess the resident in person or wait for an appointment. 

“There has always been a problem getting any sort of services because they are not classed as emergency services, getting somebody's hearing loss checked, it can take weeks, or even months,” said TLC Care home manager Pradeep D’Cruz.

TLC Care provides care to hundreds of residents across North London, Hertfordshire, Cambridge and Surrey.
