In the ever-changing landscape of senior living, the integration of cutting-edge technologies has proven to be a game-changer when it comes to enhancing life safety. The needs of seniors are continually changing, and so are the technologies designed to keep them safe and secure. The following technologies should be considered in the future for your community: Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS), mobile personal emergency response systems (mPERS), and comprehensive data and insights. The introduction of these technologies has transformed senior living communities and improved their safety.

Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS): Pioneering Safety in Senior Living

The implementation of Real-Time Location Systems, or RTLS, has emerged as a major advancement in the field of senior living safety. In a senior living community, RTLS uses a wireless communication network and sensors to track residents’ real-time locations. Resident and caregiver alike benefit from this technology. Having their movements discreetly monitored allows residents to enjoy greater independence. In contrast, caregivers can respond rapidly to emergencies, such as falls or wandering.

Location tracking is just one aspect of RTLS. It also allows the creation of virtual boundaries within communities by creating location violation rules. An alert is triggered if a resident crosses these boundaries, ensuring timely intervention. As a result of RTLS, communities can optimize resource allocation and enhance overall safety by gaining insights into resident patterns and habits. Sentrics’ next-generation life safety solution, Ensure, combines efficiency and care. RTLS-based eCall platform keeps residents safe, improves caregiver efficiency, and reduces adverse events.

Mobile Personal Emergency Response Systems (mPERS): Empowering Residents On the Go

Providing resident safety doesn’t end at the gates of senior living communities. In recent years, cellular mobile Personal Emergency Response Systems (mPERS) have emerged as an invaluable tool for tracking residents inside and outside of communities. These wearable devices operate via a cellular network, allowing residents to call for help from anywhere, anytime.

A prime example of this technology is Sentrics’ Belle Series X mPERS pendant. As well as offering two-way voice communication and fall detection, it also incorporates GPS tracking, so residents are always within reach, whether they walk around the community or venture outside. Having this level of mobility and connectivity not only empowers residents but also gives their families and caregivers peace of mind.

Data and Analytics: Illuminating Insights for the Future

Data is king in the digital age, and senior living communities are harnessing its power to shape the industry’s future. A wealth of insights can be gained from data and analytics regarding resident behavior, preferences, and overall wellbeing. Using this data, communities can improve safety measures and improve quality of life by making informed decisions.

Data and reporting are taken to the next level by Sentrics Ensure by providing insights that have the potential to transform senior living communities.
