Four Ways to Celebrate Your Residents with Digital Signage

CCook | April 5, 2020

Assisted living facilities provide both the care that seniors need as well as a unique sense of community for the residents and staff. There are special friendships formed among residents and staff over the years they reside in an assisted care facility.

Creating a quality of life that is as full and rich as possible presents a tremendous opportunity for staff to be creative in their approach to help their residents know how valued and special they are.

Facilities with digital signage have an opportunity to both broadcast special moments as well as create some sweet memories for residents within the four walls of their center. Here are four ideas for how to celebrate your residents using your digital signage:

Celebrate Birthdays & Anniversaries

Most obviously, celebrate special days for your residents using your digital signage. This not only makes them feel extra special on their big day, it gives their friends and neighbors a chance to wish them a happy birthday or happy anniversary too!

Celebrate Special Achievements

Whether one of your residents has just completed a quilt or reached a goal for their physical therapy, everyone is encouraged when you celebrate the achievement of their goals!

Share Memories from Special Events

Showcasing the smiles and fun from a recent special event will bring back fun memories, but also will help those who have been hesitant to get involved to know how much fun is being had and encourage them to come along for the next activity!

Surprise Them With Messages from Visitors

When your residents have guest visit, give them the chance to surprise their loved ones with a photo and a special hello showcased on the screens!

There are dozens of ways you can leverage the power of your digital signage within your assisted living facility, and we’d love to help. And, if you haven’t yet installed digital signage, we can help strategize how it might be an easy and affordable way to level up your on-site communication. Schedule a free consult here!
