We disinfect high touch surface areas multiple times each day with disinfectants that are EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) approved to be effective against the coronavirus. Our overnight cleaning regimen is also increased, and our centers have increased ventilation, which allows more fresh air in.

Technology that helps seniors manage their health.

Many Americans these days are choosing to age at home and technology is a useful tool to provide peace of mind and help seniors stay on top of their healthcare. Digital tools are especially helpful in situations where family members can’t always be there or live out-of-state.

But which technologies are most helpful?

Technology keeps moving faster and faster and it can be hard to know which devices will be most helpful to seniors. Out of everything available today, tools like digital pill dispensers, medical alert buttons, smart toilets, smart watches, and senior fitness trackers are valuable devices to help seniors maintain their independence and safety while aging in place. New technologies are also often designed with seniors in mind, with easy-to-read interfaces and convenient ways to set reminders or alarms.
