Why innovation is important to Savista

Savista Developments was formed to provide the next generation of outstanding residences for our sister company Hallmark Care Homes.

By applying new technologies, processes and innovations to the design and construction of the care homes, Savista is able to stay abreast of new and innovative ideas enabling us to meet the needs and expectations of our ageing population; and improve the way they live.

As an innovative and thought leading company, we are proud to spearhead the design and development of our construction projects. Our team are continually adapting and making improvements, as well as exploring new opportunities to ensure we create real solutions, improve productivity and reduce costs, allowing us to remain best in class.


We are proud to announce the start of an in-house accelerator program: Care Accelerator. Run in unison with our Learning and Development department this initiative will allow team members to research new ideas and build a business case much like a start-up.

Participants will explore new technologies and methods to build and operate our homes that complement our existing high quality relationship-centered care provision.

Incorporating innovation into our developments

Artificial Intelligence-powered monitoring system

At Savista we are proud to announce we have invested in Ally, a night-time monitoring system to give our residents better sleep plus safer and more personalised care.

Ally is a fantastic solution that is proven to help care homes reduce falls, hospital admissions and night-time disturbance whilst giving our care team more time to spend with each resident.

“At Savista we constantly strive to provide our residents with the outstanding care they deserve, we are excited to introduce Ally across our homes to help our residents live healthier and happier lives”
Aneurin Brown, Operations Director

New innovation ideas being developed

Circadian lighting in our homes

We are looking to include circadian lighting into all our new care homes. It is an effective lighting system designed around natural circadian rhythms which helps maintain the sleep schedule and natural body clock of residents. Residents living with Dementia are particularly susceptible to light disturbances because they have a negative impact on their already restricted orientation and perception abilities.


We would love to hear your innovative ideas!


At Savista we are creating exceptional environments for later living lifestyles. If you have any new research, products or services in a construction related field we would love to hear from you.
