recognizing the negative impact of hearing loss
Commonwealth Senior Living focuses on healthy living and is consistently looking for new and innovative ways to engage residents in Memory Care and Assisted Living.
After recognizing the negative impact that hearing loss had on resident well-being, Commonwealth decided to trial Eversound at one of their communities.
Using Eversound for engaging activities
Commonwealth Senior Living associates began using Eversound in several different kinds of programing including:
- movie and television viewing
- one-on-one conversations
- readings of religious texts
- speaker events
- music during meal time
Analyzing Eversound’s powerful impact
Commonwealth Senior Living expanded its use of Eversound to 22 of its Virginia-based communities after analyzing data collected through SMILE, a web-based communications tool used to track resident participation in programming activities.
