  • Staff and families can send texts and emails to each other.
  • Staff can send messages securely back and forth.

Communication in Action⚡

Check out how LifeLoop’s Communication module helped a Colorado campus evacuate 400 residents during a fire.

On December 30, 2021, a devastating fire broke out in Louisville, Colorado. A thousand homes burned during what has been called The Marshall Fire. Thousands were forced to evacuate. Our Louisville Campus, which consists of 4 different communities, had to evacuate—this meant that 400 residents across multiple levels of care and 400 staff members needed to be evacuated in less than a five-hour span of time.

Imagine the stress and worry of our family members. Some lived locally and were themselves evacuated, adding to the stress. Some lived out of the area and likely felt helpless.

Thankfully, we have LifeLoop. With this web-based app, our leaders were able to allay all fears by sending quick and timely messages via their mobile devices. Family members received texts, emails, and calls via LifeLoop’s streamlined contact management system. Communication with residents and families became one less thing to triage as our Executive Directors secured transportation, accommodations, food, and other basic needs.

In the face of adversity, our team made sure that every resident and staff member was evacuated safely. 

Thank you, LifeLoop!

Digital Signage in Action⚡

Staff at Rose Blumkin Jewish Home proudly displays all activities through LifeLoop Digital Signage.

“We use LifeLoop for our electronic calendar displays, which ties everything together and rescues staff from creating four different calendars by hand. We so enjoy posting photos immediately to the calendars so that residents can enjoy seeing themselves instantly. At RBJH, we have in-house television stations to view the LifeLoop calendar and daily activities, which market all our programs for the month. Residents simply turn to that station any time of day to check out the LifeLoop calendar.”

Communication for a Happier and Healthier Community

When you post your veterans’ bios on your digital displays to celebrate Veterans Day, you’re communicating your gratitude for their service. When you alert family members of policy updates or emergencies, you are communicating that you are working hard to keep their loved ones safe. When you post updated events and activity calendars throughout your community, you are communicating to your community that you have a plan. When residents receive a postcard or a message from their loved ones, it’s being communicated that they are loved, and not forgotten. Communication is important. That’s why we’ve dedicated so many features of our platform to ensure your community stays connected.
