What is LifeLoop? Part 3: Amplifying Engagement In Your Senior Living Community

A 3-part blog series that explores LifeLoop’s communication, operations, and engagement features. Want to explore these features in more detail? Book your demo.

Recap

LifeLoop is a comprehensive senior living platform designed to increase staff efficiency, resident engagement, and family satisfaction. This 3-part blog series is dedicated to breaking down LifeLoop’s robust platform into its 12 features! In part one, we explored the features that facilitate communication, and part two highlighted features that streamline operations. Part three delves into the features that will amplify your community’s engagement.

Engaging Residents Means More Than Entertaining

Some senior living professionals may question the need for investing in engagement technology. After all, residents can access movies, games, and shows from any tablet for free, right? Wrong! Engagement is more than entertainment. Purposefully engaging residents decrease feelings of loneliness and isolation. This type of engagement has been proven to extend life expectancy, reduce the risk of multiple disease outcomes, including cognitive impairment, and promote preventive health behaviors. Engaging residents means instilling a sense of purpose and pride into their everyday activities, and that requires your staff to do some seriously heavy lifting. LifeLoop’s engagement features take pride in lessening the load for your staff because we understand that purposeful engagement is the bedrock of any high-quality senior living community.

Family Portal in Action⚡

Read how the Family Portal helps keep Debi S. and her family connected to her mother, even though they live miles apart:

“Thank you, LifeLoop, for becoming our lifeline to our mom. Many miles separate us from my mom but being able to log in and see all she is doing and what is coming up for her to do has been such a relief. I know seeing the photos of her being active and having a good time makes us all feel like we made the right decision. And being able to send her a postcard once a week is something she looks forward to. LifeLoop is very much appreciated by our entire family.”
