Connectivity Strategies for Senior Living

Corning's John Arwood is joined by Deanna MacCormac to discuss connectivity strategies for senior living communities. With Baby Boomers living longer on average than any previous generation, there is a huge influx of senior living residents who have dramatically increased connectivity expectations compared to years past.

Increasingly, residents will expect high-speed connectivity, for gaming, video calls, high-quality streaming, and more. Aside from meeting resident expectations, community operators can also provide a higher standard in terms of care and experience. From enhancing resident care through telehealth and remote monitoring, to boosting resident happiness through personalized TV broadcasts, connectivity will differentiate cutting-edge senior living communities more and more in the years to come.

Watch as Deanna discusses these topics and more, as well as offering advice to facility operators and IT managers on how to prepare their communities for the future of connectivity.
