RALEIGH, N.C., Jan. 26, 2021 — K4Connect, a mission-driven technology company that integrates the best in technology to serve and empower older adults and individuals living with disabilities, today announced partnerships with three leading content creators – Coro Health, CuriosityStream and Spiro100. All K4Connect customers will have access to these curated offerings delivered through K4Community Plus, the company’s advanced mobile and web application. For the first time, K4Connect is bringing award-winning factual entertainment to senior living through its partnership with CuriosityStream, a global leader in documentary streaming and on-demand entertainment.
Thoughtfully developed and curated for older adults, this on-demand programming suite transforms resident life at home with access to thousands of new activities and amenities including fitness, mindfulness, faith and spirituality, entertainment, education and more. At a time when curbing social isolation while maintaining resident engagement and activities is so critical, digital content provides safe ways for residents to stay stimulated, active and inspired. Residents indicated this need in a 2020 K4Connect Member (resident) survey, reporting the need for at-home access to more fitness/wellness, documentary and technology “how-to” content accounting for over 54% of resident top interests.
These integrations bring an extensive library of new digital experiences to K4Connect senior living residents of all ages, acuity and interests. Available through K4Connect’s mobile and web application, residents can access these digital experiences any time, from anywhere.
