Revolutionizing Data Entry

Technology in senior living has been on an incline for the past decade. Almost weekly, it seems like a new tech solution is introduced to the industry.

Revamping the Resident Profile

Resident profiles can be a powerful tool to get to know your residents and provide better unique experiences and touchpoints for them, but the reality is, initial profiling upon move in is often inadequate . This is because resident profiles remain as handwritten forms that are susceptible to messy handwriting, outdated information, or worse, just not containing the info you need altogether.
 
Resident profiles are the starting point for offering living experiences on the individualized level, but filling them out and using them seems like they’re treated as more of a joke than as a way to get to know residents. In this post, we’ll be taking a look at why resident profiles got started in the first place, how they’ve evolved, and how we can make them useful again. We’re also giving out a free downloadable checklist so you can start building the perfect resident profiles.
