1. The importance of resident communication

Communication is the foundation to creating an interconnected, accessible community where all residents feel involved and prioritized. Digital signs can be the first electronic step to informing each resident of their communities happenings.

TVs are familiar digital display formats for older adults. Digital signs transform TVs into information hubs, making them the perfect communication medium in senior living. Communities already using this form of communication report that it becomes second nature for residents to reference digital signage to get community information.

Being in a community in the first place helps; wonderful neighbors and outstanding programming staff make activities more approachable.

Even then, it can be intimidating for new and existing residents to seek out activities. And if they do seek them out, how are they supposed to remember what’s happening and when?
