The PRWIRE Press Releases http:// 2017-06-06T23:22:19Z Aruba helps organisations track valuable assets 2017-06-06T23:22:19Z aruba-helps-organisations-track-valuable-assets New BLE-powered Aruba Tags, Aruba Access Points and Meridian Software Eliminate Loss of Valuable Assets and Automate Inventory Management; Expanded Ecosystem Enables Broad Adoption Across Industries  Sydney – June 7, 2017 – Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, today announced a new addition to its location-based services portfolio that helps organisations easily track valued assets, resulting in improved organisational efficiency, and lower capital and operational costs associated with misplaced assets. The Aruba asset tracking solution is fully integrated into the Aruba wireless infrastructure enabling simplified, fully integrated deployments at dramatically reduced costs.   Organisations worldwide lose millions of dollars every year on high-value items and inventory that are either misplaced, lost or stolen. Furthermore, employees and customers suffer from lost productivity and poor experiences. These challenges are particularly prevalent in industries like healthcare, where items such as IV pumps and heart defibrillators, are easily misplaced, resulting in 25 percent of hospital staff’s time wasted looking for these assets1  and negatively impacting quality of care. In retail and warehousing, items that can’t be located quickly mean wasted time for employees, delayed order fulfillment for customers and often, a loss of revenue for the retailer.   Aruba General Manager, South Pacific, Anthony Smith, said, “Aruba asset tracking addresses these challenges with a solution that is integrated into the Aruba Wi-Fi infrastructure eliminating the need for a separate network. Organizations also gain the benefits of accurate tracking of important items using either an intuitive, map-based mobile app or by integrating with organizations’ existing tracking solutions.”   The solution includes the following components: Advancements to ArubaOS and Aruba APs: This new software allows Aruba BLE-enabled Access Points and Sensors to act as asset tag “observers,” creating a sensory network that provides added value to organisations with existing Aruba wireless infrastructure. In essence, it allows their Wi-Fi infrastructure to double as an asset tracking network. New Aruba Tags:  Cost-effective Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) – enabled tags are slightly larger than a quarter, making them ideal for items that range in size from IV pumps in a healthcare setting to pallets of goods in a warehouse. The tags are designed to meet stringent environmental requirements and come with multiple attachment options. Asset Tag Configuration App: Aruba’s configuration app makes set-up and ongoing management of the tags simple. Assets can be designated with names, photos and optional IDs so that like assets can be searched for easily. Changes can be performed quickly, near the assets, and all data is automatically saved in a central cloud database. New features for the Aruba Meridian AppMaker: Organisations can now create their own asset tracking app for iOS or Android with the Meridian AppMaker. The AppMaker provides a new SDK and APIs for seamless third-party integration and custom use cases.  Partner Ecosystem Enables Broad Adoption Across Industries Key to the success of Aruba’s existing location-based services and Mobile Engagement portfolio has been the Meridian Engage Partner Program. Customers have leveraged app developers to integrate and build value-added mobile apps for iOS and Android that are used with the Meridian Mobile App Platform and Aruba Mobile Engagement portfolio. Aruba is extending this program to include asset tracking, as well as opening the program to new partners in a variety of industries across healthcare, retail, warehousing and numerous other verticals.   Continuing its investment in the Intelligent Edge, Aruba also introduced its 8400 Core Switch at HPE Discover.  The 8400 Core Switch is a new core aggregation switch that delivers the performance, power, automation and troubleshooting capabilities necessary to address the challenges of mobility, cloud and IoT inherent in networks today.  The announcement of the 8400 Core Switch in conjunction with its asset tracking solution demonstrates Aruba’s ongoing commitment to bring innovation to organisations.  HPE PointnextAruba Meridian Services from HPE Pointnext provide customers and partners worldwide with the expertise needed to take advantage of location-based services to engage with mobile users in any organisation or public-facing venue.

Foxes pop up in Byron’s Surf Alley 2017-05-18T01:45:23Z foxes-pop-up-in-byron-s-surf-alley Move over Banksy, Byron Bay has witnessed some Feros Silver Foxes (FSFs) painting the town red - and any other colour they chose - ahead of the Byron Bay Popped laneway event. The residents’ of local care provider, Feros Care, were found in Byron’s ‘Surf Alley’ with spray cans in hand. Surfers will tell you there’s always been a link between art and ideas – and of course surfing! It’s a concept Feros Care very much understands as an innovative and bold provider of care services in the Byron Bay area. Feros is a major partner of Popped, a public space and creative activation program incorporating arts and surf culture, well-being and community inclusiveness. Jennene Buckley, Feros Care CEO, says, “Our residential villages are close to the water and have strong ties with the local arts and surfing culture, going right back to when Feros Care was started in Byron Bay over 25 years ago.” Jo Dwyer is the Care Manager of Feros Village Bangalow and believes Live Ideas is a great project. “We have a famous surfer’s mother living here in Bangalow - Grace Menzcer, whose daughter Pauline was women’s world champion in 1993,” Jo says. “Pauline Menzcer also won the 1988 women's amateur world title and WQS champion in 2002. Grace’s daughter still lives in Byron Bay, near her mum, and has been competing for more than 20 years.” Fun fact: Pauline won 20 WCT events and eight WQS events. Only Layne Beachley has won more. Grescha Brewer, Care Manager of Feros Village Byron Bay said she was “stoked” Feros Care is involved in Popped. “It’s quite special as we have a local surfer living at the village who is quite shy, but would be pretty chuffed by Feros being involved in this community project. And, not to mention some of our own die-hard surfing staff!” All residents are keenly anticipating their own graffiti workshop in two weeks’ time. Photos: LEFT - Jilli Richardson said “such beautiful colour and expression. Art is what makes life joyful – and it’s best where everyone can see it – like this alley. I normally create art with a paint brush, so a spray was pretty bold!” RIGHT - Some of the Feros Village Byron Bay residents who participated.

She mentioned to me she had not told her friends as she just could'nt cope with it.  She was just learning to cope with it.  She showed me a beautiful photo of this magnificent looking cat.  It was totally amazing.  Anyway she went away and had a coffee with her husband and then returned to order her keepsake of her beloved cat Versace.  We then did the piece and receive a beautiful message on our facebook page announcing the loss of her pet and also thanking us for her beautiful keepsake of Versace.

Volunteers contribute around 750 million hours to Australian communities each year 2017-05-08T01:10:00Z volunteers-contribute-around-750-million-hours-to-australian-communities-each-year With National Volunteer Week upon us from 8-14 May, aged care provider Feros Care says there’s no better time to talk about the incredible contribution volunteers make to society. Volunteers are extraordinary people, they’re compassionate individuals who genuinely care and want to help make a difference to the lives of those around them. In fact, Australians are very generous in helping out others, with the most recent figures (2014) from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) showing that more than a third of Australia’s population aged 15 and over volunteer in some capacity. That’s 5.8 million people or 31% of the population! Over a 12-month period, voluntary work equalled 743 million hours contributed to the community, according to the ABS. That’s an enormous amount of selfless, unpaid work by wonderful people that give their time and energy to keeping the wheels of society turning, Feros Care Jennene Buckley says. “Feros Care understands the value of volunteers, with so many extraordinary people helping out in various roles,” Jennene says. “Volunteers are compassionate people, who genuinely care and want to help make a difference to the lives of those around them. In the last financial year, we had 129 active volunteers in the community and our residential villages, which is fantastic.” Volunteering Australia says there is a “strong correlation between the well-being, happiness, health and longevity” of people who are emotionally kind and compassionate in their charitable helping activities and that the experience of helping others provides meaning and a sense of self-worth. A prime example of one of these extraordinary individuals is Feros Care volunteer bus driver, Brian King, who is reaping the personal rewards of giving back to the community. Brian King, Feros Volunteer “I have lived on the Gold Coast for over 30 odd years and got a lot out of life here and thought it was time to give back. I never expected to get such a hell of a kick out it … it exceeded my expectations,” Brian says. “It’s so enjoyable – it’s giving back to the community, that’s for sure. The interaction I have with the people is fantastic. I love seeing the interaction benefit them and others – it makes for a great day out for everyone.” Feros Care is always seeking enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers who are interested in bringing laughter, meaningful companionship and support to seniors in the community or in our residential villages - and if you’ve only got an hour a week to spare, that’s fine.

Forget Everything You Know About Multiple Personality Disorder 2017-02-27T05:53:05Z forget-everything-you-know-about-multiple-personality-disorder Alternatives to a Frozen Mouse is based on a true story of a woman living with Dissociative Identity Disorder (previously known as Multiple Personality Disorder). Writing under a pseudonym to protect her identity, A. J. Mouse decided to publish her personal struggle with DID in order to impart the truth about living with this condition. For over twenty years there had been no more splitting, no one new. Then Anne came along, making alter number ten. This book was created to record Anne’s journey as she learns to coexist with Jade, Peter, Neil, Jane, Zen, Nancy, Ray, Lucy, and of course Mouse—the author of them all. DID/MPD has been explored many times in film and television, but what is it really like living with this condition and what causes it? Author A. J. Mouse rejects the dangerous myths and misconceptions created by the mainstream media. She asserts: We do not change clothes every ten minutes. We are not dangerous serial killers. We are real—all of us. I am. We are. In the book, A. J. Mouse explores the origins of her DID and speculates on how the ‘splitting’ first began. When faced with unbearable trauma, the brain splinters to protect itself so that it can survive. Each alter has their own reason for being and their own story. But all lives stem from Mouse—the original. Anne’s mission is to uncover the reason the alters were brought into being by Mouse, and to finally bring resolution to their life. This book aims to give readers an insight into the reality of this condition and open up the discussion about mental health in our communities. Head to for more information.

Feros Care’s “Experience Centre” to transform delivery of health and Aged Care 2017-01-30T03:13:29Z feros-care-s-experience-centre-to-transform-delivery-of-health-and-aged-care TODAY: The Federal Minister for Aged Care, the Hon. Ken Wyatt AM, MP officially opened Feros Care’s Experience Centre, a state-of-the-art technology hub that is transforming the way health and aged care is delivered. The Experience Centre is devoted to the research, design and implementation of digital technologies that deliver smart and emerging technologies for seniors and people with disability. This centre is based at Tweed Heads, but provides a national presence through state based service partners, national distribution network and online services Minister Wyatt said that the Australian Government welcomes Feros Care’s investment and promotion of innovation and technology in aged care. “Access to quality, accurate and timely information is vital to support consumers, and their families, to make informed choices about their care,” Minister Wyatt said. “It’s important for the aged care sector to harness technology to support Australians everywhere to make their own choices, to be able to seek support as they wish, when it suits them and in ways that work for them.” Ms Jennene Buckley, Feros Care’s CEO said that the technology revolution is at our door step, therefore it is critical for health and aged care organisations to build a significant capability in delivering digital service models to remain relevant to our current and future consumers of our services. “It is such an honour to have Minister Wyatt here today, to support Feros Care’s initiative and to see first-hand how many of these technologies are and will change and empower the lives of our clients. “I applaud the Government’s ongoing commitment to innovation and transformation of aged care. Feros Care’s initial focus has been on aged care, however our commitment in the next five years is to focus on virtual health and wellbeing for people of all ages. This includes people with chronic disease, people with disability and virtual care (hospital in the home),” she said. The Experience Centre includes a: Research laboratory where new technologies are rigorously tested and piloted by consumers to ensure products are the best in market and most accessible and usable for clients. Plug and Play Centre where clients and health professionals can look, touch, feel and experience exactly how the equipment works. Knowledge centre that includes face to face and online workshops that can be access by health and aged care staff and services to build their knowledge, capability and interest in the use of smart and emerging technologies. Virtual care team with our clinical staff remotely monitoring and supporting high risk clients with chronic conditions National warehouse and distribution centre for our Lifelink Smart Technology Service. For the past 10 years, Ms Buckley has provided a leadership role in Feros Care’s investment in the use smart technologies to improve the lives of clients and their carers, from increasing confidence, improving health literacy and health management, to keeping them safe and socially connected. In late 2016, the Aged Care IT Council recognised this contribution by inducting Ms Buckley into the Aged Care IT Hall of fame for the role she and Feros Care have played in introducing and promoting technology transformation in the industry. Ms Buckley said “Gone are the days when technology and aged care were at opposite ends of the spectrum. Today, we can provide so many more options of care by including technology and digital solutions into both residential and home care. “We as an organisation want to lead the positive revolution in living and ageing well. Our mission is to enable bold lives, which is about thinking differently about what is possible. We believe that technology will play a significant role in the types of new products and services Feros Care will deliver each year. Our new product suites for community care include our virtual senior centre, wearable technologies, senior friendly tablets and training, wearable technologies, 12 week remote chronic disease rehabilitation with wearable technologies. The list will be grow constantly with our new Experience Centre”, she said. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Background information: Adapting technologies to meet the needs of seniors Feros Care is adapting technologies that were originally designed for athletes, office workers, and millennials to feel safe at night in New York, so older people and people with disability can live independently and safely in their own homes. Feros Care has been successful in expanding the capability of existing products beyond their original niche market, so they can meet the needs of seniors. Re-purposing smart technologies provides a world of possibilities for seniors and people with disability, by helping them feel more confident. Just some of Feros Care’s adapted technologies that are available or being tested include: Lumo lift, which was originally designed for people sitting and working at computers. It is a small, lightweight wearable to improve your posture and a healthy back. Lifelink has since repurposed this to help prevent falls. Once a person has experienced a fall, they have less confidence and tend to look at the ground and watch where their feet are going. Wearing a Lumo Lift reminds you to stand tall and look ahead. If you slouch – or in the case of an older person – look at your feet, Lumo will vibrate, making you aware of your posture. Care@Home - originally developed on a home security system – is now providing seamless health monitoring so people to live independently at home. Sensors and intelligent algorithms learn your daily habits and behaviours and sends an alert to loved ones if your daily routine changes. Care@Home is also playing a key role in reducing carer fatigue because your family and friends know that should anything happen, they’re only a text message away. The stylish Wisewear is a distress bracelet complete with GPS and text messaging, and is concealed in 18 carat gold jewellery. Wisewear was originally developed as a distress bracelet for millennials going out at night in New York. Lifelink has since repurposed this product to seniors as a discreet and attractive falls protection that sends an emergency alert in the case of a fall or health scare. END….

This care and support is provided by Australia's many aged care workers (approximately 400,000[1]), and while they may not be family or friends, they are good, kind people who are very handy to have around. Home Care comes in all shapes and sizes and assists seniors to do more, achieve more and enjoy more in life. The kind of help available is: Housework Gardening and maintenance Personal care Installing ramps and other aids to make your home safer Transport to and from your medical and other appointments Meal preparation Respite care Physiotherapy, podiatry or other allied health services Seniors fitness programs Social activities and transport to get you out and about and connecting with friends Nursing care such as medication management Depending on your circumstances, you may only need assistance for a short time, especially when you’re recovering from an injury or illness. To access the Government funded Home Care Program, you’ll need to be assessed through My Aged Care. To find out more about Home Care or to get you started, contact Feros Care on 1300 763 583. Our team will be able to discuss what services are available in your area, and can help you get set up through My Aged Care. 1] 92 year announced ‘Gets Bold Not Old’ winner by taking to a zipline 2016-12-13T23:06:04Z 92-year-announced-gets-bold-not-old-winner-by-taking-to-a-zipline 92 year old Audrey Kuchel, of Ballarat has officially been named the Feros Care Get Bold Not Old winner for 2016. Audrey won the Get Bold Not Old competition by being the oldest woman to complete the thrilling Giant Zipline in Fiji, happily dangling 30 metres off the ground with a steep ascent. She did this adventure when she was 90 – two years ago - and would happy take it on again today. This zipline is also known as the death slide, and is proof that this granny is still an adrenalin junkie at heart. After completing the course, Audrey asked if she could do it again! Get Bold Not is part of an ongoing campaign by Feros Care to show that age is just a number, and that our older community members are larger than life. Jennene Buckley, CEO of Feros Care said that while GetBoldNotOld has a fun side, its real objective is to squash the negative sterotypes of older people and aged care and remind people that age is just a number. Life is to be lived to the fullest regardless of your age. “There are real issues faced by seniors, from feeling invisible in their community, health and mobility issues, social isolation, financial hardship and elder abuse. In fact, a recent study by Brigham Young University shows that there is an increased risk of death for people who are lonely and socially isolated.[1] “I congratulate Audrey on being the perfect role model for other seniors and proving that you don’t suddenly become invisible when you reach 70, or 80 or 90. Society often forgets that today’s 92 year old nana such as Audrey was yesterday’s rebel. Audrey is proof that our seniors have many wonderful stories to share, experiences and probably even some secrets. “Thanks to the hundreds of other people who shared their spectacular photos and refuse to act you age! You are proof that age is just a number,” she said. Audrey’s immensely proud daughter Lynn entered her Mum in the competition, and said she has always been adventurous and outgoing. Audrey is not your typical granny - defying the stereotype of what getting older looks like. In fact, as a 66 year old widow, she travelled solo throughout the world – feat that even the bravest person would baulk at. But it’s not just her boldness and bravery that this award recognises. She is kind, caring and community minded - knitting singlets for disadvantaged babies in Africa and actively involved in planning regular family reunions. In her down time, Audrey tends to her garden, and loves to read – she is always on a quest to find a book she hasn't read. The $2000 prize money has already been earmarked for Audrey’s next adventure, a cruise around Tasmania in January, sharing among 13 great grandchildren, and donating some to cancer research.
