Using Technology to Combat the Silent Epidemic in Senior Living

A staggering 80% of people over the age of 85 experience hearing loss, but only 1 out of 5 who could benefit from a hearing aid are using it. This creates a gap of over 60% people who remain unplugged from their environment. As a result, this barrier leads to increased social isolation, decreases in quality of life and ultimately comorbidities and negative long-term health outcomes. The good news is, there are technologies that can bring people out of the silence and back into the world around them.

In this episode, Matt Reiners, Co-Founder of Eversound explains it all!  Matt shares the research, and the data that supports the positive impact of using assistive hearing technology, case studies illustrating the real impact made at the community level and best practices for communities looking to take their resident programming to the next level using technology. And perhaps most importantly, Matt shares some guiding principles and best practices for how providers can approach this journey to identify the right partner and strategy aligned to their community’s resident engagement goals and philosophy overall. Raising Tech is powered by Parasol Alliance, The Strategic Planning & Full-Service IT Partner exclusively serving Senior Living Communities.
