Senior Living Case Study

Learn how Gwinnett Christian Terrace secured elderly patient safety and property

Gwinnett Christian Terrace (GCT) is a spacious six-story, federally assisted apartment community for seniors, nestled in a quiet wooded setting near Lawrenceville Highway and Beaver Ruin Road in Lilburn, Georgia.

GCT is a non-profit organization whose community houses 125 one-bedroom apartments.

GCT had two primary concerns:

  1. Elderly residents are prone to falls, and staff cannot provide in-person supervision of all common areas at all times.
  2. Elderly residents are particularly vulnerable to potential criminal activities. Frequent visitors made it difficult for staff to secure the building with a simple lock and key solution. Their existing CCTV system was poorly designed and not sufficiently maintained.

Their non-profit and federally funded status meant a limited budget for security upgrades.

An Acom Solution Specialist worked with the executive director and facility manager to identify solutions that would meet the identified needs.

  • An Access Control System on perimeter doors allowed the staff to lock down the facility during non-visiting hours, restrict access to sensitive areas, and deactivate terminated employee access.
  • An updated CCTV system provided total coverage of the facility, which provided monitoring and resident and guest activity. Visible exterior CCTV cameras worked both as a deterrent to potential activity as well as a redundancy for the access control system.

Our Solution Specialists were able to design a security migration plan that met their budgetary needs. Locally-delivered service from Acom Technicians means their new systems will not fall into disrepair and any downtime due to system failures will be minimized.
