The VC View: How the lessons of unicorn investments can transform tech innovation in senior living

Mar 15, 2023
Every notable unicorn was fueled by a strategic investment in innovative technology. Uber transformed personal transport. Airbnb revolutionized hospitality. Innovators become industry game-changers where need and ease of implementation met adoption and market champions.

Is it possible for a breakthrough technology to change the trajectory of senior living, elevating care, driving better outcomes for residents, improving the bottom line for operators, and becoming the new standard of excellence for the industry-at-large? Our expert VC panel says yes.

Learn how to leverage expert investor insights to deliver results-driven innovation for your senior living organization.

Why better rest for residents means better occupancy for communities

Jan 26, 2023
Disruptive nighttime events are one of the main reasons families turn to senior living. And poor sleep quality can begin a cycle of health deterioration, increasing a resident’s fall risk and furthering cognitive decline. So, how can you assure families that you’ll help their loved ones get restful sleep—and reduce their risks—when they move into your communities? It starts with insights into and understanding of why sleep is being disrupted, as well as a clearer picture of resident risk.

Join our free webinar on January 26th for an in-depth discussion of the etiology of sleep disturbances, an analysis of exclusive data around falls and risk overnight, and an exploration of proven strategies that support better sleep—all empowering you to put families at ease about their loved ones’ quality of rest and level of risk when considering a move into your communities.

Residents are most vulnerable overnight. Here’s how to best support them.

Oct 26, 2022
In senior living communities, the overnight hours are the most vulnerable for residents. Fall risk peaks between 6 – 9 pm and again from 3 – 6 am. Staffing is reduced overnight. And as the sun goes down, residents living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia experience sundowning, the increased restlessness, anxiety, and disorientation that can increase fall risk—and which becomes more intense as the diseases progress. In October’s National Fall Huddle, we’ll evaluate the incidence of falls during the evening hours and what triggers and subsequent behaviors are present prior to these fall events. We’ll also review how environmental factors contribute and we’ll provide strategies for mitigating sundowning behaviors, increasing resident safety and reducing the risk of falls. Additionally, we’ll examine how technology can further help during these most vulnerable hours, supporting staff so they can provide more effective and person-centered care. As always, we’ll review successful case studies, and our panel of experts will take your questions.

So, what is the state of falls in 2022? In short, it’s a crisis.

Sep 22, 2022
For every step we take, someone aged 65 or older is falling. As the aging population grows, so will the number of falls. By 2030, there will be 72 million older adults—experiencing a combined 52 million falls every year. And the health system, senior living operators, adult children, and seniors are working in silos to try to solve this 51- billion-dollar-a-year problem, with costs extending beyond financial expense to include massive physical and emotional tolls, too. That’s why SafelyYou is unveiling data from our inaugural report, The State of Falls, a comprehensive study based on a survey of more than 400 executives and care providers across senior care and adults 42 and older. We assess approaches to fall management, impact of falls to communities, and how fall risk shapes the emotional—and financial—health and wellness of families. Join our special webinar on September 22, the first day of fall and Falls Prevention Awareness Day, as our panel of industry experts provides unique perspectives and commentary coupled with powerful insights and selective strategies to move beyond the status quo, and begin the work of bringing the health system, operators, adult children, and seniors together to break down silos and misconceptions around falls and build transformative change.

Know which transfer aid to use when. And how to use it most effectively.

Aug 17, 2022
Transfers are a common source of falls—even when supporting aids are in use. Which begs the question, are the right aids being used with the right residents, and in the right way? Join us for August’s National Fall Huddle, when special guest Kari Harbaugh, Senior Product Consultant at Direct Supply, helps lead the discussion of all things transfer aids, including which aid to use when, the different considerations for different types of aids, and the best practices for each. We’ll also discuss communication strategies for encouraging residents living with Alzheimer’s and dementia to participate more easily in transfers, reducing fall risk and increasing safety. And we’ll demonstrate how technology can help develop desired behavior more quickly—which is critical for memory care residents who have difficulty identifying safety hazards and learning to use new aids.

Accurately assess fall risk in residents with cognitive challenges. And apply what’s learned to personalized care plans.

Jul 20, 2022
Fall risk assessments are the first step in fall prevention for a resident—and they’re critical for developing the right care plan. But these assessments shouldn’t be conducted in the same way for all residents—they have to be adjusted at certain levels of care. In this National Fall Huddle, we outline the types of assessments that work for those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, and explain what sets them apart. Watch this webinar to learn how information gathered from these assessments can be used to shape personalized care plans. We discuss the appropriate frequency of fall risk assessments, explore their purpose, and identify the skills needed to conduct them comprehensively. And we examine how innovation can be used in conjunction with assessments to identify a fall’s root cause and any fall patterns.

Remove the guesswork from unwitnessed falls.
