Discovering profound benefits through technology
As a national leader in senior care and dementia, Silverado collaborates with research organizations to develop and perfect new treatments and care techniques to provide the highest quality of care.
Silverado began a collaborative partnership with Eversound to improve resident engagement through technology.
Enhancing innovative program offerings
Silverado began using Eversound in almost all of their program offerings:
- Yoga, meditation, and exercise
- Creative arts, dance, and music
- Charades, games, and audiobooks
- Flower arranging
They also found Eversound to be just as beneficial in one-on-one situations.
Implementing Eversound nationwide
After witnessing Eversound’s ability to improve hearing, calm residents with cognitive and sensory impairment, and increase focus, participation, and socialization, Silverado knew Eversound was capable of improving the lives of all of its residents. Within two months, Eversound was implemented in all 36 of Silverado’s communities.
Eversound has been readily adopted by staff and has demonstrated a variety of benefits, from recreational group activities to better nutrition, as Eversound blocks out distracting dining room noise. Residents have experienced improved mood, cognition, and enjoyment in activities.
Eversound has also played a tremendous role in Silverado’s support groups for Parkinson’s and early stage dementia. Before Eversound, participating in these groups was especially difficult for soft-spoken or hearing-impaired residents, who would have trouble engaging in activities when they couldn’t hear.
Eversound has been a homerun. We’ve seen it make a real difference for a number of our people.”
