WellAware Converts Retirement Unlimited Project

WellAWARE Systems has converted its relationship with Retirement Unlimited, Inc. (RUI), based in Roanoke, by converting two of its retirement communities from pilot projects to partners.  Both the Heatherwood Retirement Community (located in Burke, VA) and The Towers Retirement Community (located in Richmond, VA) have independently converted from a pilot project to a partner and have expanded their use of WellAWARE’s technology across their care continuum. In addition, The Towers has established itself as a Center of Excellence for WellAWARE to test new features and technologies in a real-life setting before making them commercially available.  The WellAWARE solution is available in all units at Heatherwood and The Towers.

“Simply put, we are now able to have clearer indications about what is happening with our residents without being intrusive,” said Susan Green, Administrator of Heatherwood and Board Member of the Virginia Health Care Association. “The families of our residents are convinced this technology provides the caregivers with a better understanding and greater insight into what is happening in their loved one’s life.”
