“Living Life Out Loud”
Charter Senior Living distinguishes itself among senior living communities by placing a strong emphasis on engagement and addressing the unique challenges faced by life enrichment professionals. By fostering a productive synergy between their marketing, sales, and programming teams, Charter recognizes the crucial role of programming in creating a thriving community.
In line with this commitment, Charter partnered with Eversound as part of their “Living Life Out Loud” month-long program, to introduce a network-wide pilot program designed to raise awareness about hearing loss and the cognitive impact of neglecting it. This collaboration presents an exciting opportunity for Charter to develop and organize programs that utilize Eversound’s innovative wireless headphone technology, enhancing residents’ hearing abilities and actively involving them in community activities.

Charter Senior Living: Premier Choice for Unmatched Connection and Meaningful Experiences
For the past several years, Charter Senior Living has embraced Eversound as an instrumental technology within some of their communities. Following a successful month-long pilot, over 75% of their communities now utilize Eversound. This collaboration ensures access to a wide range of experiences that promote engagement, connection, and overall well-being.
Eversound’s plug-and-play wireless headphone systems have made a significant impact on Charter’s residents, enabling them to feel heard and included not only during programming but also in interactions with family members. By promoting connectivity, Eversound has strengthened relationships and enhanced the resident experience beyond traditional activities. Families appreciate the added value during one-on-one visits, as it creates more meaningful and elevated moments (#Evermoments) that keep everyone connected.
The photos captured during our silent disco experiences became the heartbeat of our “Live Life Out Loud“ program, infusing life into every moment throughout the entire month. The ‘#evermoments’ shared showed the pure vibrancy and joy radiating from our residents’ faces.
