Reimagining the resident experience with technology

As we journey through life, we find ourselves in a perpetual state of change, sometimes joyful and other times challenging. With older age, the ability to cope with these changes becomes even more important to our mental well-being.

Older adults often face significant losses and transitions, such as the passing of loved ones, financial changes, and retirement, which can challenge their sense of purpose. Social isolation and loneliness affect about a quarter of older adults and around 14% of adults ages 60 and over living with a mental disorder, mostly depression and anxiety. Providing them with the necessary tools, support networks, and resources to navigate these shifts is essential for maintaining their mental health.

So how do we build mental resilience in older adults, empowering them to combat feelings of isolation, depression, and anxiety? According to Kris Frankel, Regional VP of Engagement and Dementia Training at The Arbor Company, we need to purposefully engage with residents. She emphasizes the importance of combating isolation: "We’ve seen what isolation can do, and it’s really important to allow residents to live a life of passion and joy that gives them a reason to get out of the bed in the morning."

Promoting healthy aging with technology

By integrating technology into residents' daily lives, communities are revolutionizing the way seniors experience their golden years. Through innovative programs and tools, technology is becoming a powerful ally in promoting holistic wellness among older adults.

From virtual worship services to expert-led exercise sessions available on-demand, technology ensures that residents can stay connected and active, regardless of physical limitations. Communication apps make it effortless for residents to maintain meaningful connections with loved ones, sharing cherished memories and staying engaged in each other's lives.

But technology isn't just about staying connected—it's also about staying sharp. Residents can engage in stimulating trivia sessions and puzzle games, fostering mental acuity and a strong sense of community within their new homes.

And when it's time to unwind, technology offers a welcome escape. Whether enjoying a favorite movie solo or gathering with friends for a screening, residents can find comfort and enjoyment in the familiar embrace of entertainment.

By embracing technology in these practical ways, communities are not only enhancing residents' well-being but also adapting to the evolving needs of an aging population. And with everything just a click away, technology is making life a little brighter for seniors everywhere.


Offering residents purposeful engagement through technology solutions has been proven to decrease anxiety, depression, and feelings of loneliness, thereby enhancing the resident experience.

We recognize that every resident is unique, with their own preferences and abilities. That's why our content is meticulously designed to cater to all phases of the day and all levels of ability.

We also understand the importance of managing stresses and anxieties, as well as the significance of therapeutic interventions in senior care.

LifeLoop offers a wealth of content tailored specifically for seniors, curated by renowned specialists like Coro Health and Spiro100. This eliminates the necessity of hiring external specialists, resulting in significant cost savings for communities. "No longer are communities at the mercy of local instructors or limited class options," says a representative from Spiro100. "With Spiro100, seniors can stay active, healthy, and inspired, regardless of their location or circumstances."

Our communication tools not only encourage connections with families but also facilitate deeper relationships within the community itself. When staff and residents have a better understanding of one another, it leads to more purposeful interactions, where residents feel seen and valued as individuals. As a result, residents gain a sense of belonging and feel more at home within their community.

A happier aging experience 

By embracing technology, we have the power to transform the landscape of elderly care. Technology isn’t just a tool; it’s a gateway to addressing the challenges of anxiety, loneliness, and depression often faced by seniors. More than that, it serves as a catalyst for enriching their lives by facilitating connections, encouraging physical activity, and granting access to resources that enhance overall well-being.

As we venture further into the realm of innovation, let us steadfastly uphold our commitment to ensuring that every senior can experience a life filled with fulfillment and dignity in their later years.
