Webinar: Using Technology to Reduce Operational Costs & Enhance Resident Experience

by Sarah Daniels


On Sept. 22, Seniors Housing Business and sponsor ecobee hosted the webinar “Seniors Housing: Using Technology to Reduce Operational Costs & Enhance the Resident Experience.” With the need to reduce energy use and protect employee time (while limiting unnecessary interactions with residents), making technology a part of senior living communities has never been more important. Smart thermostats offer a wide variety of benefits, especially for communities trying to improve their NOI. Thermostat solutions can mean less unplanned contact for staff and more control for residents, as well as energy and time savings for communities.

Leveraging these smart devices to let staff and residents focus on what really matters is the focus of this hour-long webinar. Find out more about seniors housing trends and challenges, plus insight from case studies on how best to implement a technology with surprising implications for resident dignity.
