Leading senior living technology provider uncovers timely trends that keep residents safe and active, while improving staff productivity and community satisfaction

 

RALEIGH, N.C.–Nov. 25, 2021—K4Connect released its second quarterly insights report today exploring key trends impacting resident safety, wellness and satisfaction in senior living. Over the past year, these topics have been increasingly top of mind for both residents and community leaders, and the new report reveals how technology is accelerating and supporting success in these areas. As senior living operators continue to navigate post-pandemic life in their communities, it is critical to understand and value the role technology can play in improving resident quality of life, augmenting staff challenges and creating meaningful community experiences.

“Just like the communities that we serve, residents – whom we refer to as our Members – are at the core of everything we do at K4Connect. The technology we provide must add value to their daily lives,” said K4Connect CEO and Co-founder Scott Moody. “This quarter’s report recognizes areas where technology is providing a tremendous amount of value, at the same time, also revealing where operators can implement solutions to better meet the needs of their residents today and into the future.”

In the report K4Connect Fall 2021 Insights Report: How Technology Accelerates and Supports Resident Safety, Wellness and Satisfaction, data and survey responses strongly point to technology as a way to strengthen safety measures in resident homes, increase community-wide visibility and team productivity for staff, and expand wellness offerings for residents. The report also explores how residents measure their personal satisfaction and happiness in a senior living community.
