Keystone Technologies Publishes Guide to Keeping Seniors Socially Connected

Senior Care IT Solutions Leader's New E-Book Is a Resource for Community Administrators Looking to Keep Their Residents Engaged

ST. LOUIS, MO--(Marketwired - February 16, 2016) - Keystone Technologies, a leading force in health IT and senior care technology solutions, announced today that it has published a guide for senior care communities looking to use technology to help their residents stay socially connected with friends and family. The e-book, The Senior Living Insider's Guide to Keeping Residents Connected and Engaged, is available for free download at http://www.keystone-technologies.com/senior-living-insiders-guide-keeping-residents-connected-and-engaged.

For aging adults, feelings of isolation are just as important a medical concern as changing health. Although senior living communities certainly offer more socialization and opportunities to create a support group of peers and neighbors, there is more that can be done to keep residents feeling engaged. Senior-specific technology can help by making connecting with friends and loved ones as simple as logging on. Keystone's new e-book details how technology can promote social engagement and facilitate feelings of connectedness. Among the guide's features:

  • The importance of keeping senior residents connected and engaged
  • Benefits, both for residents and community operators, of technology that connects seniors
  • Four considerations administrators and directors should keep in mind when adopting technology

"Research has shown that seniors who use the Internet even only moderately feel less lonely and have lower rates of depression," says Andy Belval, President and COO of Keystone Technologies. "Senior care communities that offer tech-based 'staying connected' solutions are gifting residents with the chance to feel happier and more engaged. Our new guide details the benefits of this strategy and describes the steps communities can take toward connecting their residents."
