Status Solutions Offers Web-Based Communication and Engagement Platform to Senior Living Communities Free of Charge
COLUMBUS, OHIO–In response to COVID-19, Status Solutions, a senior living technology company, is offering a web-based version of their CATIE technology free of charge for any senior living facility who needs assistance with communication during the coronavirus pandemic.
Through CATIE Web, facility staff members have the ability to keep residents and family informed with real-time notices and updates, as well as facilitate communication to residents with direct messages. The technology also allows residents to order food to their rooms, check-in with CATIE once a day to ensure that they are safe and secure, and listen to a carefully curated senior radio station called CATIE Radio.
During this time, many facilities have put restrictions on visitation, and many people have made the decision to avoid in-person visits. In turn, many seniors may experience above average feelings of isolation and loneliness.
Senior isolation comes with negative health risks, but by providing digital ways of staying in touch with staff, family and friends, senior communities can prioritize both mental and physical health in their seniors. Close relationships are a large determinant of physical health and well-being, and technology can boost connectivity and cultivate successful relationships among older adults.
“In these unprecedented times it is important that the senior living community is equipped with the necessary resources to allow residents to not only stay safe and healthy, but also give them a high quality of life,” said Amy Jeffs, Vice President, Status Solutions, “CATIE allows residents to be independent, but continually engaged while decreasing the risk of be exposed to COVID-19.
The setup of the website can be done remotely, so there is no risk of unnecessary visitors entering senior communities. Each facility will need to provide their own computers, but Status Solutions will assign a representative to work with each facility to get the website set up.
