Assisted-living facilities were hit hardest by COVID-19 fatalities, but adversity has led to a new generation of technology, techniques and best practices.
Avamere adopted the software LifeLoop, which is designed to help seniors in assisted-living facilities communicate with friends and loved ones as well as connect with staff. LifeLoop allows residents to communicate and play games such as mah-jongg with other LifeLoop members across the country, creating a large community of seniors in similar living situations. It is a feature that can mitigate social isolation due to quarantine.
Amy Johnson, CEO of LifeLoop, says sales of the software to elder-care facilities have doubled since the outbreak.
