Senior Living

Leveraging Digital Signage in Assisted Living Facilities


Assisted living facilities have a unique challenge: maintain a high quality of life for your residents while keeping an institution of people on the same page. Outstanding communication is key to making it all work.

When you’re trying to reach seniors as well as staff and family, finding opportunities to communicate with them passively and repeatedly is key to retention of important messages. Digital signage can be much more than just a TV in your lobby in retirement communities.

For example, your digital signage can showcase photos and videos of special moments – who doesn’t love to see themselves “on TV?” Your digital screens can also show the menu for your dining facilities, announcements, weather updates, upcoming events, important announcements, as well as local news updates.

Many assisted living facilities are large, some with multiple buildings, and getting a message quickly across is sometimes of the essence. 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.

The nature of digital signage is that it repeats relevant information in a passive way. As we age, sometimes our ability to retain information from a conversation fades. The repetition of a message allows for all of your seniors to be reminded of an important message numerous times, as much as they may need. The highly visible nature of digital signage also allows for those even with reduced vision to read and engage.
