How Digital Signage Helps Residential Care Facilities


Individuals running residential care facilities have to, at once, maintain a high quality of life for their residents while maintaining expert-level communication with employees and residents in an ever-changing world. That is no easy task, and it takes a strong communication plan to get the job done well.

Repetition is key to ensuring your message is fully received and implemented, so finding multiple touch points and reminders is critical when communicating to a large group of people. Saying something once doesn’t mean the message will land!

Digital signage is a great way to communicate inside your residential care facility because it’s highly visual, easily read, and repetition is built in! Digital signage functions on a playlist, which allows for messages to be communicated as much as necessary, without becoming irritating.

Your digital signage can showcase the menu for your dining facilities, announcements, weather updates, upcoming events, important announcements, as well as local news updates. Many residential care facilities also leverage their digital signage to showcase their residents and families, staff, and celebrate special moments!

Your facility may be located on a large campus, and quick communication may be sometimes not only helpful, but essential to the safety of your residents. With your digital signage, you are able to update your playlist or post an urgent announcement visible on all screens in a matter of seconds from any computer.
