Brookdale and STANLEY Healthcare Partner for Innovation in Safety and Security for Senior Living
Three-year agreement makes STANLEY Healthcare’s market-leading Smart Living solutions available to Brookdale’s 1,100+ senior living communities.
WALTHAM, Mass., April 26, 2016— STANLEY Healthcare, a market leading provider of visibility solutions and analytics for the healthcare industry, today announced an innovation partnership with Brookdale Senior Living. Under the agreement, STANLEY Healthcare will work with Brookdale to develop and refine innovations for safety and security in senior living, while also offering its proven solutions – including Emergency Call, Wander Management and Facility Security – to Brookdale’s wide range of senior living communities.
Brookdale is the leading operator of senior living communities throughout the United States, with approximately 1,123 independent living, assisted living, and dementia-care communities and continuing care retirement centers in 47 states and the ability to serve over 108,000 residents.
“With technology offering unprecedented ability to improve resident security while enhancing their quality of life, we seek to standardize our operations in this area and lead safety innovation in a broader way,” says Andrew Smith, Director of Strategy and Innovation for Brookdale. “This work is part of Brookdale’s ‘Rewiring Aging’ initiative, which we launched in 2015 to look at how technology can enrich senior’s lives in many different dimensions.”
The partnership will explore innovations in safety and security technology for both current applications – such as streamlining workflows to more efficiently respond to a resident’s call for assistance – and new use cases for the remote monitoring of residents’ clinical indicators and behaviors, which could lead to earlier detection and the avoidance of treatment in hospital.
STANLEY Healthcare is the market leader in safety, security and efficiency solutions for senior living, trusted by 12,000 senior living communities worldwide. Its solutions include Emergency Call, Wander Management, Fall Management, Staff Assist, Facility Security, Environmental Monitoring and Equipment Management. By providing individual protection to residents when and where they need it, STANLEY Healthcare’s solutions helps promote safe mobility and elevate resident quality of life.
“We are very pleased to partner with Brookdale to help meet the safety and security needs of its many communities across the country,” said Marty Guay, President of STANLEY Healthcare. “As the largest and one of the most dynamic senior living organizations in the country, Brookdale shares with STANLEY Healthcare a vision of applying innovative technology to improve the resident experience and the operational and financial performance of senior living communities. Today’s solutions already make a tremendous positive impact on the lives of seniors in terms of safety and quality of life, while at the same time making communities more efficient. The potential for future innovation is even greater, and we look forward to joining forces with Brookdale to make this a reality.”
