Holladay, UT (September 2016) Today’s seniors are expecting more from every aspect of their lives. The senior housing industry has responded by creating assisted living communities, a place where senior residents thrive. To celebrate the way more than one million people live, there is National Assisted Living Week® taking place September 11-17, 2016. This year’s theme “Keep Connected” showcases the integral role technology plays in assisted living communities such as Cottonwood Place.
The theme celebrates the countless ways assisted living and memory care communities are integrating technology into resident care. In fact, seniors are the fastest growing internet and social media users today. They typically use it to reconnect with people from their past, bridge generational gaps, and find online support for people living with chronic diseases.
“We take enormous pride in finding new ways to enhance the services we provide in assisted living,” said Gabby Money for Cottonwood. “Incorporating 21st century technology whenever possible truly makes resident care better in so many ways and helps them enjoy a better quality of life.”
“Keep Connected,” recognizes the increasing opportunity technology can offer to enhance the care and overall experience in assisted living communities. During this week communities are encouraged to support opportunities for residents to use the latest communication tools to engage with the world around them. Furthermore, “Keep Connected” acknowledges the many ways assisted living staff and supporting business partners are revolutionizing the care provided in these communities through innovations in technology.
Assisted Living is………
Like a retirement living community, the philosophy of assisted living embraces independence, choice and the opportunity for seniors to live enriching lives with additional care at their disposal. The everyday tasks of chores, home maintenance and meals are taken care of as well as the assurance that licensed nurses are on staff for residents.
In assisted living, family members are welcome to visit and participate in community life, and benefit from support services and the knowledge that their loved one is more than well cared for. In fact it’s well documented that older adults who need some assistance with daily living tasks, such as dining, cleaning or medication management often benefit and thrive from better nutrition, more social interaction and higher activity levels in assisted living communities.
