Communication Delivers Value
Seniors often feel isolated and inadequate in the face of today’s technology. Using the advanced multimedia messaging that Connections makes easy is typically a proud and liberating step. It opens new vistas of independence and encourages participation in healthcare plans.
Surprisingly, helping a peer manage challenges is one of the most effective ways of engaging seniors to improve their own health management. Connections provides the communications tools that allow peer groups to contribute to each other’s engagement in their personal health regimen.
Families, who typically live in an intensive communication world, usually feel distressed and guilty that their parents are more and more difficult to engage on the other side of a technology divide. With Connections, family can help their parents (and staff) using their everyday communications style.
IT technologies can impose unfamiliar new burdens on staff, requiring training and changed habits. Connections allows staff to communicate with seniors and family using communications styles that are familiar, flexible and time-saving.
