WiFi and supporting technologies

Our Inverell facilities boast free WiFi services, which enable our residents and clients to stay connected, and our team to deliver clinical care systems at the bedside in real time.

Our fully integrated WiFi network is used for resident and clinical data, enables our residents and clients to access to the internet, and includes a state-of-the-art WiFi Nurse Call system and integrated telephones, which brings it all together. 


Video-conferencing is one of the main ways in which we deliver Telehealth. This improves your access to healthcare services, and is ideal for people who live in regional, rural and remote areas.

Our Telehealth services use information and communications technologies (ICTs) to deliver health services and transmit health information over both long and short distances, including voice, data, images and information.

Support through technology – in the Community

McLean Care® have invested heavily in portable tablet technology, allowing staff to deliver wellness and reablement services that support our remote Clients through the use of face-to-face exercise and education sessions through video-conferencing technology.

Don't gift a scammer iTunes cards
The ACCC is warning people to be on the lookout for scammers who are trying to con their victims into paying for scams with Apple iTunes gift cards.

Watch out for NBN scams
The ACCC is warning the community that scammers are pretending to be from NBN to con victims out of their money and personal information. Scamwatch has received 316 complaints this year about scammers impersonating NBN with nearly $28,000 reported lost.

Beware of ransomware
Ransomware is a type of malware that blocks or limits access to your computer or files, and demands a ransom be paid to the scammer for them to be unlocked. Infected computers often display messages to convince you into paying the ransom. Scammers may pretend to be from the police and claim you have committed an illegal activity and must pay a fine, or they may simply demand payment for a 'key' to unlock your computer. If you pay the ransom, there is no guarantee your computer will be unlocked.

Modern technology – keeping you on the road

As people age, the fear of losing their drivers licence can be a strong catalyst for premature entry into residential aged care. Being able to drive – to shop, to attend medical appointments, to attend social engagements, is a key aspect of independence for many adults, and is closely tied to a sense of freedom, competence, confidence and identity.

McLean Care® is committed to ensuring that older people in regional, rural and remote communities have equitable access to services that help them to maintain their health, independence and wellbeing as they age, and to maintain good social connections.  

In 2017 we were successful in an application for major Government grant funding, which will enable us to design, build and trial unique and innovative technology that may assist older people keep their driver’s licences longer. The project will see the development and trial of a ground-breaking, cutting-edge virtual reality (VR) driving simulator for older people aged between 70-80.

With a proven project delivery record of accomplishment, we will undertake testing of the simulator late in 2018.
