Senior residents of more than two dozen of Brookdale Senior Living’s (NYSE: BKD) Florida communities have gained access to an online social network through the company’s partnership with ConnectedLiving.
Brookdale’s 29 Florida communities have implemented ConnectedLiving’s cloud-based platform, which allows users to go online, email, access a library, games and social media tools including video chat.
ConnectedLiving also provides Brookdale’s residents with training programs, classes, activities and on-site support to help users become familiar with the technology.
“Brookdale Senior Living has seen the positive results of ConnectedLiving at communities that have already implemented the program,” said Sara Terry, Brookdale’s Vice President of Customer Experience. “We have found access to technology combined with ConnectedLiving Ambassadors who provide onsite training and support, empower our residents to lead a more purposeful life.”
The company has also implemented an additional level of training among residents in its Sterling House assisted living communities.
