The digital signage is hoped to enhance the quality of living for Lenbrook’s senior residents

Technology company K4Connect has partnered with Atlanta-based not-for-profit community Lenbrook to enhance the lives of its senior-citizen residents.

The first of its kind in Georgia, the Smart Senior Living Community will implement K4Community – K4Connect’s smart solution to keeping residents happy and safe, and to keep families and staff connected.

When K4Comunity has been fully implemented, residents will be able to access real time information, control their smart living environments (smart lights and thermostats, etc), monitor their health and wellness, access community concierge services and securely connect with loved ones, staff and fellow residents by using either a smartphone, tablet or even just their voice.

The technology will be rolled out by Lenbrook in phases, with the first phase focusing on K4Community’s content creation, management, publishing, and digital signage platform.

...this technology to Lenbrook [will] provide a platform to support more healthy, independent, and engaged lives for our residents

Digital signage will be installed throughout the facilities which will automate Lenbrook’s staff workflows and simplify the way they create, manage and share content. This provides increased opportunity for resident engagement with access to real-time information and events.

“The purpose of bringing this technology to Lenbrook is to provide a platform to support more healthy, independent, and engaged lives for our residents,” explains Dan Dornblaser, vice president of finance, chief financial officer, and IT leader at Lenbrook.

F. Scott Moody, co-founder, chief executive officer, and chief member advocate of K4Connect adds: “Lenbrook is a cutting-edge community with a clear focus on providing the best in care and hospitality for their residents.

“Our solution enables Lenbrook to modernise experiences for current residents and staff, as well as prepare for the future by offering the flexibility to seamlessly add new smart technologies as they come to the market.”
