Video Conferencing Connects Seniors
Leading IT Managed Services Provider Brings Enterprise Level Video Conferencing to Senior Living Communities
Clinton Township, MI, June 22, 2017, Complete Interactive Technologies, Inc. (CIT) is a leading IT managed services provider offering structured cabling, network infrastructure, video conferencing, business phone systems, and business security systems to mid-size and small businesses, announced today it will now offer a turn-key; video, network, and nurse call phone service for senior living communities. CIT has found new ways to make these services simpler and easier-to-use for seniors providing a more personalized user experience.
According to the Administration on Aging, “The older population—persons 65 years or older—numbered 46.2 million in 2014. They represented 14.5% of the U.S. population, about one in every seven Americans.” Staying connected is essential for seniors, especially for those living in assisted living communities. Receiving a phone call from a love one, keeping track of family on Facebook, or getting a “Happy Birthday” email from a grandson makes life worth living. Connectivity is also essential for staff members who need to communicate with one another and consult with outside medical professionals.
“To a senior a video conference with their son or daughter and grandchildren is just as important as a Fortune 500 CEO’s video conference. Video calling brings people together and it’s our job to make sure it works,” stated Michael D. Meldrum, CEO of CIT. “We recognize video technology emerged in the later stages of a senior’s life and may be difficult to use and manage. We take great pride in offering concierge services to ensure senior adoption and quick resolution of any issues as they occur.”
According to Lisa Berkman, chair of the Department of Society, Human Development and Health, “Social participation and integration have profound effects on health and well-being of people during their lifetimes. We know from previous studies that people with many social ties have lower mortality rates. We now have mounting evidence that strong social networks can help to prevent declines in memory. As our society ages and has more and more older people, it will be important to promote their engagement in social and community life to maintain their well-being.”
