Ireland Lodge run by Brighton & Hove City Council is a registered care home for up to twenty three people. Ireland Lodge provides accomodation and personal care to older people with a Dementia type illness.
The building consisits of one storey with residents accomodation taking the form of single on-suite bedrooms. There are communal areas, including three combined lounge/dining rooms and two enclosed garden areas. Residents also have access to a day centre.
Providing a safe and secure environment for the residents is of paramount importance. To achieve the highest level of security and flexibility available Ireland Lodge chose the TLJ Keycard Locking System and the TLJ Infinity lock model. The Keycard Locking System allows for far greater control over who has access to which areas of the home. The locks can be programmed to remain unlocked throughout the day to allow residents free passage throughout the home. The locks can then be activated as and when required. The use of keycards means that if a card is lost it can be cancelled quickly and efficiently without the worry of having to get a lock smith out to change the door lock.
