Eversound Partners with Care Purchasing Services (CPS) to Bring Engagement Technology to Senior Living Communities
BOSTON–Eversound, a senior living engagement technology company, partners with Care Purchasing Services (CPS), the leading national group purchasing organization dedicated to the senior living market, to provide a simple and affordable solution to increasing engagement of residents, resulting in a higher quality of life and positive health outcomes.
Eversound’s monthly membership, which includes its easy-to-use headphones, transforms daily life for residents and staff by reducing the risk of cognitive decline, social isolation and fall risk through enhanced focus and engagement.
According to A Place for Mom, one of the top five reasons seniors consider moving into assisted living communities is to increase their opportunities for socialization. America’s Health Rankings 2019 Senior Report gives special interest to social isolation as increasing evidence shows it is linked to higher rates of mortality, poor health outcomes such as accelerated cognitive decline and greater health care costs.
Eversound’s engagement-amplifying tool enhances focus and engagement in group events and one-on-one interactions. It is the only wireless headphone system designed specifically for residents in senior living communities. By increasing socialization among residents, their families and their caregivers, Eversound has been shown to have a powerful impact on the well-being of residents.
Early efficacy has shown that Eversound can increase engagement by 75%; improve mood and behavior in memory care residents by 64% and increase understanding of an activity by 77%. Other communities have reported the technology has helped alleviate some of the behavioral challenges common in residents living with cognitive decline and other dementias.
“Our mission is to end social isolation for vulnerable, at-risk individuals,” said Jake Reisch, CEO and co-founder of Eversound. “With CPS as a partner, we look forward to transforming daily life for even more residents and impacting even more communities through the use of our innovative technology.”
Additionally, Eversound can be used to enhance existing engagement technologies and investments including compatibility with other CPS vendor partners including iN2L and Rendever.
