How technology is enhancing quality of life in senior living communities


How technology is enhancing quality of life in senior living communities

Senior living communities are increasingly leveraging technology to provide a high level of care and reassurance to family members. Companies like BridgeWater Assisted Living and Solterra Senior Living Communities in Scottsdale, Arizona, are at the forefront of this trend, maximizing patient care with top-of-the-line technology.


The global market for technology in senior care is expanding rapidly, with expectations to reach $914 billion by 2025. This growth is fueled by innovative devices that go beyond the traditional "I've fallen and I can't get up!" Life Alert button. New technologies now track sleep patterns, heart rate, and daily activity, keeping families of independent and assisted living residents informed about their loved ones' health. Solterra Companies, a leading provider of senior living solutions, has embraced this technology to enhance independence and improve the quality of life for residents.


One such technology implemented by Solterra is the high-tech nurse call system, Care Predict. This wireless system not only tracks residents' daily health stats but also detects subtle changes in their well-being and can alert loved ones of potential health issues before they escalate. Additionally, Solterra utilizes ALIS (Assisted Living Integrated Solution) software, which offers a comprehensive suite of electronic health record (eHR) tools. ALIS helps manage compliance across state lines, provides full eMAR management and drug counting, integrates assessments, and enhances family engagement.


Peter DeMangus, Chief Business Development Officer at Solterra Companies, highlights the benefits of ALIS and its integration with Care Predict, stating, "ALIS provides our team of caregivers with the ability to anticipate any change in condition for a resident, proactive healthcare, and aids in fall prevention."


Furthermore, Solterra Senior Living and BridgeWater Assisted Living communities prioritize compassionate care and respect for residents. They utilize state-of-the-art technology such as the Care Predict digital health platform and TapRoot Interventions & Solutions' digital assistant, Ella, specially designed for senior care. Ella assists caregivers in personalizing approaches and interventions for residents experiencing Alzheimer's and Dementia-related symptoms, thereby addressing behavioral issues and enhancing quality of life.


Steve Jorgenson, CEO of Solterra Companies, emphasizes the importance of technology in improving care processes and resident outcomes. He explains, "The goal is to automate our processes, from admissions to discharge, with real-time information. Technology allows us to gather current data and track changes that are needed in the continuum of care."


Solterra Companies owns and operates Solterra Senior Living and Bridgewater Assisted Living, offering a range of innovative and high-quality senior living communities. Their commitment to leveraging technology underscores their dedication to providing exceptional care and enhancing the well-being of residents.
