RALEIGH – K4Connect is determined to redefine the digital experience for older adults in senior living, especially now during COVID-19. And it’s offering technology to senior centers right now free of charge in the firm’s latest effort targeting the impact of the pandemic.

Senior and assisted living centers have emerged as one of the most damaging “hot spots” for COVID-19 with access to residents often limited by restrictions on visitors.

K4Community Plus, its new resident app launched this week that takes some of what it considers the “best experiences” of today’s popular social media platforms and integrating them into a sophisticated application specifically designed for them.

“Our company exists to serve older adults through technology that adds value to their lives. This mission has never been more important than right now as older adults – and the senior living communities serving them – are turning to technology solutions to help manage the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic,” says K4Connect CEO and Co-Founder, F. Scott Moody.

“K4Community Plus brings material present day utility to senior living, enabling communities and their residents to truly connect, communicate and engage in secure, meaningful ways both in and outside of the communities they live in. Isolation is one of the more significant challenges they’re facing today, which is why our expediting and releasing K4Community Plus now to better support them was incredibly important to us.”

K4Connect’s new app

The Raleigh-based company creates technology solutions centered to help older adults and individuals with disabilities. It currently serves tens of thousands of senior living residents at 800 premier continuing care, independent living, assisted living and memory care communities across the nation.

The app allows community residents to connect with family and friends, engage and socialize with their community and fellow residents, as well as control their smart living environments all from their personal devices.

Several senior living communities beta tested the new application. As one White Horse Village resident observed: “This technology is the future!”

To help seniors and centers, K4Connect is offering remote installation of K4Community Plus to any senior living community at no cost for the coming months.

Recently K4Connect also recently launched additional entertainment options for its users.
